Zach Deputy

Georgia-based singer and multi-instrumentalist Zach Deputy is coming to Columbia with his self-described “island-infused, drum ’n’ bass, gospel-ninja-soul” music.

Deputy is known for his fun, energetic live shows and is popular on the festival circuit.

He recently released his fourth studio album, “Wash It in the Water,” an album that he produced, mixed and recorded himself.

Expect layered instrumentation, calypso rhythms and plenty of smiles at this show. With headliner Keller Williams KWahtro, an acoustic dance music group featuring Gibb Droll, Danton Boller and Rodney Holmes.
