You may recall Zachary Ross from one of the most pivotal pop-punk bands of the 2010’s, Man Overboard. His musical talents landed him on the main stage of the Vans Warped Tour and on worldwide tours with sold-out crowds on multiple continents. When the band came to an end, Zac tended to his family life and struggled with mental illness of his own. After a few years under the radar, he felt it was time to make new music under his own name in the summer of 2021. His agent Matt Pike encouraged him to take the plunge by reminding him that if he puts great music out, the world will probably listen, or at least some people. With that fire lit, Zac headed to Hollywood to make a record and a new band of his own.

Despite Man Overboard reunion plans in the future, Zachary Ross And The Divine is his latest full-time effort and main outlet as a songwriter. The new tracks explore the stories of his life including love, loss, growth, and change. The familiar and beloved characteristics of Zac’s previous musical endeavors are present and seamlessly blend with his new perspective and approach as a solo artist. A Light Over Massachusetts, his first EP under the moniker, is set to release on August 19th via Smartpunk Records.

“Tim Landers from the band Transit was one of my best friends and partners in music. When he passed away I was emotionally devastated. This song is about me finding closure with the passing of my friend. I am doing everything I do for the rest of my career in his honor.” (Zachary Ross)
