Zach Westerfield- Hot and Heavy Mix

By  |  0 Comments


Zach Westerfield began his journey in entertainment early in childhood pecking away at piano keys perhaps before he could spell his name and spinning Disney Collections repetitively on a mono-speaker portable record-player. Though it was in 1992 when his career in music and the music business really started to take shape. Through an internship it all began at an Indie Label known as Maxi Records, it was there that the desire to know, understand and grasp the concepts of music business came into fruition. In order to absorb everything demanded 40 hours + schedule in exchange for the priceless experience and knowledge; hence the term “paying dues” this made way a couple months later a career and paycheck.

Not realizing at the time, Zach had found his niche and soon after he assumed the title of National Promotional Director at Maxi Records. Paving the way to success, he first promoted the comically song, “Funk Dat” by Sagot (a.k.a. Chico Jump Slam), supported by the Underground Club Scenes, Top 40 and Urban Cross-Over Radio and the video made popular by “Beavis and Butthead” on MTV, generated sales in excess of 80,000 copies in the United States and earned the notoriety of a Gold Single.

Over the years Zach has worked independently, directly, as a Liaison, Publicist, Promotional Directors, Project Coordinator, A&R for both Major and Indie Labels as Motown, Sony Music Japan (Avex), A&M, Emotive Records, Wave Music, BMG, King Street Sounds, Maxi Records, and KULT Records. In addition to having had the pleasure and experience in working with and developing artists and their music as Diana Ross, The Brand New Heavies, Loletta Holloway, Towa Tei, Fran..ois K., Danny Tenaglia, Kevin Aviance, Ian Appell, Elias Miah, The Ananda Project, Dynamix, Eddie Cumana and many, many more. His discography includes many Number 1 Singles charted in Billboard Magazine as well as globally, a multitude of Gold and Platinum Records, and recognizable names of artists and producers whom have pioneered timeless music and the business of music. Zach Westerfield has been a panelist at The Billboard Music Summit, The Winter Music Conference, The DJ Expo, and other forums consulting on topics as Marketing and Promotion, A&R and Artist Development, and Making the Music Business Work for You. Zach Westerfield has managed and produced special events and launch parties for companies as Ford Motor Company and The Queen Latifa Talk Show, R.J.
