Zach Lambert Guitarist

Zach began a dedicated and passionate journey with the guitar when he was nine-years-old, and he’s never looked back. With thousands of hours of practice and a couple hundred gigs behind him, he began his professional music career in 2018. Balancing playing out professionally and continuing his education, Zach continues to tirelessly work in his efforts to grow his craft.

From rock and funk, to pit orchestras and jazz, Zach has become a well-rounded and versatile guitarist. As of 2019, he has played over 200 gigs in a variety of bands and settings around Annapolis and Baltimore, Maryland, including local and regional festivals, charity events, bar gigs, church services, and theater productions. His personal blues-based rock trio, 2nd Chair, plays original music, mostly at local festivals like the Frozen Harbor Festival and Eastport-a-Rockin'. He also has a newly formed jazz quartet that recently played at The Mainstay in Rock Hall. He continues an active pit orchestra schedule, as well. Zach is looking forward to being a part of the Voices of Carmen musical in July 2019, the final show of which will be at the Kennedy Center on August 3, 2019.

In 2018, Zach became the inaugural winner of The Mainstay Rock Hall Scholarship and went on to sit in with Frank Vignola at The Mainstay later that year. He began 2019 by joining saxophonist John Thomas on stage at The Mainstay. Zach is currently studying Jazz and Commercial Guitar Performance at Towson University. He recently was awarded the Semper Fidelis Award for Musical Excellence and the Woody Herman Jazz Award. He is also a certified teacher for the Warrior Music Foundation and teaches private lessons. Zach plays Eastman hollow body guitars and PRS electric and acoustic guitars.

My life is driven by a need to create music, not only for my own enjoyment but also for the benefit of others. Music means everything to me. It has changed my life, and I hope to use it to continue to enhance others’ lives.

Music has given Zach the opportunity to give back to the community. As mentioned above, he recently became certified as a guitar teacher for the Warrior Music Foundation, helping active duty military members, veterans, and their families cope with PTSD through the healing power of music. He has played at fundraisers for local charities, such as Burgers and Bands for Suicide Prevention in Severna Park, MD; Feeding the Homeless—A Veterans Day Tribute in Baltimore, MD; Junior Achievement of Central Maryland at The Meyerhoff in Baltimore to help support K-12 youth in working toward academic and economic success; and the Cystic Fibrosis Charity Walk at the Naval Academy Stadium. As well, he has enjoyed the privilege of being able to play at many area festivals, including Annapolis First Sunday Arts Festival, Bay Music Festival, Eastport-a-Rockin’, Annapolis Bar-Bay-Q Event, Annapolis Chocolate Binge Festival, and the Nextival.

As a musician, I consider myself an artist. Art is what distinguishes humans from all other animals—except instead of decorating space, I decorate time. Music breaks the monotony of everyday life and it provides encouragement to the listener. People often look for an escape from life’s troubles and, as a musician, it is an honor to offer them that.
