Zach Fowler has made a career of being ready for anything. A bassist and musician who brings an old-school creative mentality to a new musical environment, Zach Fowler is the complete package…a knowledgeable, groove-oriented bassist with a deep pocket, amazing technical ability, uncanny stage presence, and a soulful solidity. Born into a family that had a wide variety of tastes in music, Zach was exposed to countless genres of music growing up, allowing him to attain a natural sense of groove when he first started playing bass at the age of 14. Less than a year after picking up the instrument, Zach was playing professionally, and was a standout jazz musician on both electric and upright bass, earning several soloist awards in high school. He went on to attend the University of New Mexico, where he minored in Double Bass Performance and was a member of the award-winning UNM Jazz Orchestra, while also maintaining a rigorous gigging schedule. After an 11-year stint as bassist and musical director for the Albuquerque-based R&B group, The James Douglas Show, Zach moved to Nashville, Tennessee, where he immediately started working with Warner Music Nashville recording artist, Dean Alexander. His first single, "Live a Little," charted in the Billboard Top 50. In his first six months in Nashville, Zach also performed with or contributed to noted Nashville artists and producers such as Josh Thompson, Will Garrett, Jesse Keith Whitley, and Eric Lee Beddingfield, as well as up-and-coming artists Sasha McVeigh, Trig County, Cody Purvis, Dusty Hundley, Blake Hall, and others. In 2015, Zach became the bassist and bandleader for Reviver Records country rock duo, LOCASH. Formerly known as the LoCash Cowobys, LOCASH has a string of hits which include "C.O.U.N.T.R.Y.," "Keep In Mind," and "Best Seat in the House," while also contributing as songwriters to a #1 hit by Keith Urban ("You Gonna Fly") and a Top 10 hit for Tim McGraw ("Truck Yeah"). LOCASH's single, "I Love This Life," climbed to #2 on Billboard's Hot Country chart, and was also the #1 country song on satellite radio after taking the top spot on Sirius XM The Highway's Hot 45 Countdown. "I Love This Life" was also the #1 song on Music Row's Country Breakout chart. The music video for "I Love This Life" has surpassed 8,000,000 views on YouTube. The band's second single, "I Know Somebody," became LOCASH's first #1 song on Billboard, and the band's second straight #1 on the Music Row Country Breakout Chart. LOCASH's tour schedule easily surpasses 200 dates per year, including international dates. Zach has also appeared with LOCASH on The Today Show (NBC), Fox & Friends (Fox News), The Talk (CBS), and Jimmy Kimmel Live (ABC). LOCASH's monstrous tour schedule continues into 2018 as they open for country superstar Billy Currington on his "Stay Up 'Til the Sun" tour, as well as their own headlining and festival dates
