DANIEL BLUE: MEET ZACHARY MARVIC >>>

TacomafileszacharymarvicTacomafilesart_2 Zachary Marvic was born in Denver, Colo., and moved to Tacoma when he was 2. A magical love child of 1979, the Rocky Mountains had no hold, and the coast drew his family like the autumn wind draws the leaves from trees to the mushy muck that forms in the gutters and all over the sidewalks.

Zachary is an artist, was recently featured at the Helm Gallery downtown that earned him a write-up in City Arts Magazine. The scope of Zach's work is very interesting, marking three stages: Early Tacoma, Olympia, and post New York, which he has recently moved due to "doing everything and not being able to get anything done," he claims. 

I met Zachary through artist/poet Jeremy Silas, who told a story of a drummer with no equal. "He just came into the studio, took off his shirt and was like, LETS GO!" I appreciate this aspect of Zachary's character, this willingness and a ready mind. Currently recording his own solo album and drumming for local Dear Records band Banners, Zach also works in the afternoon and evening at Black Water Café.

His love and compassion leads to a near constant warm smile and friendly demeanor. Zach is a gem.
