In early 2006, “How Many Times,” from Hexum’s full-length release, caught the attention of music execs at Apple, who made it the iTunes Single of the Week. Still in his mid-20s, Zack Hexum graduated from the University of North Texas in 2000, where he studied jazz and performed with the top student big band on campus, One ‘O Clock Lab. He then moved to New York City to study saxophone with David Liebman (Miles Davis), and lived there for two years before moving to Los Angeles. In addition to performing with Liebman in New York, Hexum has recently played saxophone for Michael Bublé and Dredg. But while Hexum’s mounting musical exploits have helped to broaden his horizons and industry network, he is first and foremost a gifted singer and songwriter. Having toured with both 311 and Tears for Fears, Hexum is planning an 8-10 week nationwide spring tour in 2006 before heading back into the studio again.
He has also put together a residency at Hotel Café in Los Angeles called the “Zack Hexum Couples Skate,” where he pairs himself with another emerging artist every Tuesday. Never one to tire, Hexum sees himself continuing to make music for several years. “I've got a lot of different irons in the fire these days,” he says. “But I'm hoping to grow artistically, have a savings account and to become a slightly less obscure household name.” Those who hear Zack Hexum’s music will agree that those goals are already within reach.
