Savannah-based multi-instrumentalist and songwriter Zach Deputy emerged in 2008 with the release of his debut album, Out of the Water. Deputy is known for his live looping shows, and has described his style as "island-infused drum n' bass gospel ninja soul." He spends the majority of his time on the road playing shows, and at one time averaged 200 shows a year. Deputy's shows are mostly one-man-band looping shows but have also featured the Zach Deputy BAnd and acoustic storyteller shows. He has released a total of five studio albums since making his debut over a decade ago, including Sunshione (2009), Into the Morning (EP, 2011), Another Day (2011), and Wash It in the Water (2016).
