Zakk Knight is an 18 year old guitarist, singer, and songwriter from Indianapolis, Indiana. Zakk is firmly rooted in blues with his eyes on the big stage to enable him to share his influences through his own original music.
Zakk began singing at the early age of 6 through influences of Elton John, Stevie Wonder, and Elvis. With 7 years of singing, Zakk discovered musicians like Prince and Freddie King. He instantly decided that guitar was his career. At the early age of 15, Zakk became the recipient of the Robert Johnson Blues Foundation New Generation Award and at 17 became an original member of Brotherhood of the Guitar.
With many performances under his belt since then, Zakk continues to polish his tone and technique for his upcoming EP entitled “Show N’ Tell”, which scheduled for release in August 2012.
