Zak Claxton is a Los Angeles-based singer-songwriter and performing musician. After years of experience as a session musician and playing in a number of bands around LA's South Bay area, Zak created his debut solo album, which was released in December 2009. He is currently working on his sophomore release. Zak is also one-third of the alternative music band They Stole My Crayon, who are working on their first album.
Zak's influences are diverse, ranging from classic singer-songwriters like Joni Mitchell, Neil Young, and Nick Drake, to innovative modern bands and artists like Kurt Vile, Syd Arthur, Fatso Jetson, Unknown Mortal Orchestra, and many others. Honing his skills with education through prestigious schools like Berklee College of Music, Musicians Institute, and Cal State University, Zak has spent more than 25 years doing live shows and recordings, both with bands and as a solo artist.
Since 2006, Zak has been part of the burgeoning online live performing community in virtual worlds such as Second Life® and via live video platforms such as Ustream™. Zak also continues to perform live in the flesh as a solo artist and occasionally with musical friends around Southern California.
