Born in Manhattan, NYC, Zachary Alford began his musical journey being influenced by musician friends of his older siblings (his sister's boyfriend's band used to rehearse in their living room). "I used to look under my bed at the drums that were stashed there. Being so close to real instruments started my fascination with them." "My brother's friend Chandara lived on the 18th floor and he was a drummer too".
