Always looking to break the mold, Zack Hemsey is a creator by nature. From composing film score to writing candy companies with suggestive prose on how to improve their products, he has a thirst for things that inspire and move. Blending the sound of the orchestra with modern elements and ethnic instrumentation, there is a definite intensity in his music. He is perhaps most renowned for his signature sound as the composer / lyricist in the hip-hop collective Nine Leaves. After releasing two albums under Nine Leaves, his first solo work, entitled "Empty Room," releases May 2010.
