Saul Zonana started writing songs at the age of three in Bayside Queens, NY. Inspired by The Beatles, The Who, Yes, Black Sabbath, Rush, The Cars and The Police, he released his first solo album at the age of 13. “I played many instruments, wrote songs and recorded them,” says Zonana. “That’s really all that I cared about. I had to search hard for others that were equally passionate about making music. It was in my blood from the very beginning.”
Today Zonana owns a recording studio, Studio Z, in Nashville. He’s released ten of his own albums and one live CD, in addition to working with and/or producing many other acts. Along the way he secured two major recording contracts and two major publishing deals, received strong US radio play for his songs “Holiday” and “Chasin’ It”, and toured the world several times with artists such as Ace Frehley, Adrian Belew, Crash Test Dummies and Lisa Loeb.
Zonana has recorded/mixed music for Adrian Belew, Crash Test Dummies, Blue Oyster Cult, Taylor Dayne, ATB and many others. He was in the first American band to ever play in Red Square, Moscow, in front of 70,000 fans. In May, 2007 he was featured on the cover of Guitar Magazine with Carlos Santana along with a full feature article. He’s contributed music to films and TV shows including Crazy Love, Men In Trees, Party Of Five, 24, Wonderful World, Dirt, Beautiful People, Army Wives, and Arrested Development.
Despite his many accomplishments, Zonana remains focused on the future. “Here’s the weird part…To me it feels like I haven’t really done anything yet. There’s so much more to do.”
“Every single one of these amps overflows with its own beautiful vintage character. I want all of them :)”
