What Makes Zach So Special
  • Zach Herron's vocal styling has been compared to the likes of Ed Sheeran, Justin Bieber and Shawn Mendes. Favourable comparisons to the teen pop icons of the present era should augur well for the youngster, who idolises Mendes. But that's not to say that he has been trying to copy any of these aforementioned artists. If that were the case, Herron wouldn't have made it this far. It goes without saying that his USP is his uniqueness.
  • Besides being a singer-songwriter, he is also a guitarist; the instrument was an integral part of his performances in the pre-boy band days, as a solo artist. It's no wonder the teen girls are charmed by Zach, for who wouldn't fall for a cute 15-year old musician with a guitar slung across his shoulders!
  • "When I was performing as a solo artist, I was actually almost pulled off the stage by a fan," smiles the singer as he recounts one of the many crazy fan moments he had. As the fan base keeps growing, a new class of ardent admirers who call themselves “Herronettes” have emerged, and it comes as no surprise that most of these are adolescent girls who are convinced that Herron is the next big thing in the music world.
Beyond Fame
  • The launch of the boy band, ‘Why Don't We’, is a step in the right direction for Herron. The five-man band is a collective of promising talents, led by Zach Herron and featuring Jonah Marais, Jack Avery, Daniel Seavey and CorbynBesson. What works for them is that the association is not nurtured by artistic concerns alone but also by the genuine rapport and camaraderie between the youngsters. Since friendship is the guiding force of this partnership, there is very little place for egos and insecurities between the five.The band, which is still in its early days, has already released two hit tracks - 'Taking You' and 'Nobody Gotta Know'. They will be going on tour towards the end of 2016; as of now, the Voltage Lounge in Philadelphia and Webster Hall in New York are the two confirmed venues where you can catch 'Why Don't We' live.
Behind the Curtains
  • Known for his soft-spoken, humble nature, Zack Herron credits fans and fortune for his enormous success. "If they were to make a biopic on me, I think the title would have to be 'Lucky', because I am pretty lucky to be where I am right now. I’m so thankful for everything that’s happened so far. I want the fans to know that I respect them and love them so so much, that I wouldn’t be where I am now without them," Herron had said in a Teen Music Insider interview. If he manages to maintain that degree of level-headedness throughout his career, we are surely going to hear great things from Zach Herron – the boy wonder.
  • Zach confesses that he still gets the jitters while performing live on stage.
