Zach Moses Ostroff plays bass (and a few other things), sings, writes songs, produces records, and composes film scores. The common thread tying together these disciplines is his desire for finding the present moment, to be in musical conversation with the listener. He has led and accompanied bands on stages and in studios around the world. Zach performed for President Obama and the UN in New York City. He made his debut performance as a leader at the Kennedy Center in Washington, DC. He was featured in the HBO Series Masterclass performing with violinist Joshua Bell. His parallel passion for solving environmental challenges has influenced his approach to music as a universal tool for change. He premiered Vote For Home the first web video series to feature well-known musical artists discussing the impact of climate change on hometowns in the United States, while helping register viewers to vote in US elections. He has performed with Ibrahim Maalouf, Angelique Kidjo, Wynton Marsalis, Louis Cole, Esperanza Spalding, Dayna Stephens, Taylor Eigsti, Charles Altura, Jaron Lanier, Josh Groban, Tootie Heath, James Francies, Eric Harland, Cris Williamson, Barbara Higbie, Diving Dame, and so many musical artists who greatly inspire him.
