Widely acclaimed for his compelling and impassioned work both on the stage and in the studio, native New Yorker Robert Zahn is quickly establishing himself as one of the most exciting composer-performers on the scene today, with a host of touring and recording credits that belie his age.


Principally as a bassist and singer, Rob commands some serious chops, blending the sophistication of Jazz and Classical styles with the grit and soul of Rock, Funk, and R&B. Known for his articulate grooves, thoughtful solo work, and fiery showmanship, he cultivates a robustly musical landscape of complex and colorful architectures that demand exploration. Rob is a full-time member of progressive metal group Dead Wake which he co-founded along with guitarist Steven Drizis and drummer Marc Capellupo.


Robert composes for the stage, concert hall, and mixed media with a deeply diverse sonic palette, exploring complex emotions in his works that borrow from a host of musical idioms, including opera and art songs of Renaissance Europe, ancient folk traditions of the Far East, and modern popular styles.
