Zachary Cale is an American songwriter and musician originally hailing from Enon, Louisiana. His music ranges from acoustic balladry and American primitive inspired guitar instrumentals to experiments in popular song forms.
Over the span of 6 years he has released four full length albums, Outlander Sessions (2005), Walking Papers (2008), a full band rock record See-Saw (2008) under the name Illuminations, and most recently the critically acclaimed Noise of Welcome (2011). He has toured extensively throughout the U.S. and in Europe, often performing alone with only an acoustic guitar, but has been known to perform with a revolving cast of musicians whom he calls The Rain Band.
He has been likened to classic songwriters of the past such as Bob Dylan, Townes Van Zandt, Neil Young, Alex Chilton, Ray Davies, and Leonard Cohen, musicians who in their unwavering hold on the muse transcend genre classification while maintaining that rare ability to tell stories of their own time.
2013 will see the release of his fourth album entitled Blue Rider.
