Vancouver Welcomes New Artist In Residence at Fairmont Pacific Rim

This week from March 20 – 23, our second Artist in Residence, Zach Person, will take centre stage in The Lobby Lounge playing four special performances showcasing his refined-rock and indie-soul sound.

March 18th, 2019

Zach Person is a singer, songwriter and guitarist from Austin, Texas. Inspired by blues, rock, soul and pop music, his sound is refined-rock and indie-soul. Zach’s roots stem from New Jersey, and he then moved with his family to North Carolina. He began studying guitar at age 10 under the direction of Baxter Clement. At 13, his family relocated to the gulf coast city of Houston, Texas. There he began songwriting and performing for Texas crowds around the region. In 2016, he competed on Season 15 of American Idol on FOX television. After leaving the show at the top 24 decision, he returned to Houston to continue pursuing his career. Over the next few years, he performed with artists such as Buddy Guy, Keith Urban, Harry Connick JR and many others. In November of 2018, ZP performed as Amazon Web Services’s (AWS) first live band for their annual re:Invent conference at the Las Vegas fairgrounds. Zach currently resides in Austin, TX where he records and rehearses when off the road. He is set to release new music in 2019.
