Zac Poor biography
Zac Poor is an American singer/songwriter based in Los Angeles, California who first appeared on the music scene in early 2010 with his EP, "Let's Just Call It Heartbreak,” a collaboration with Glee producer Adam Anders. Universal Motown executive Sylvia Rhone took notice of Poor's talent and signed him to his first major label deal in early 2011. Rhone stepped down as President of Motown within months of signing Poor amidst a shakeup at the label. He and Universal parted ways shortly thereafter.
Poor's writing career includes collaborations with hit makers Carl Falk (One Direction, Britney Spears), Brian Kennedy (Chris Brown, Rihanna, Rascal Flatts) and has written for artists such as Jason Derulo, Nick Jonas, The Backstreet Boys, Delta Goodrem, Samantha Jade, and Girls Generation.
Zac began work on his debut LP in late 2011 and collaborated on several of the albums tracks with up and coming producer Mason "MdL" Levy (Justin Bieber, Maroon 5, Mike Posner). In April 2013 Poor released a clip of the MdL produced "The Way it Feels," a pop ballad rumored to be the LP's lead single. Finnish producer Hank Solo has also contributed several songs to the album, including the yet to be announced title track.
Poor cites Bryan Adams, Justin Timberlake and George Michael as being his musical influences.
