California music accessories brand Gruv Gear is proud to feature Bassist Zachary Rudulph. Zachary is part of a family of prominent world-class musicians that heartily endorse Gruv Gear products.
Bassist/Musical Director Zachary Rudulph hails from the Bay Area in Northern CA and now lives in Los Angeles. Having moved south to attain a music degree, as well as a certificate in recording and engineering, Zach has since cut records and played with many of the top names in pop, hip-hop, gospel and R&B. Hits credits include Andy Grammer, Outtasight, Colbie Caillat, The Game, Justin Young, Christafari, Dominic Balli, and international stars including Jay Park, and Kamran & Hooman to name a few.
He is currently on tour with Billboard named “Artist to Watch” Andy Grammer, with whom Zach has traveled steadily over the past 4 years musically directing the band, playing bass and singing background vocals. His stage presence is infectious, an outstanding entertainer who obviously loves what he does. 2012 was an amazing year headlining with Grammer and opening for Gavin Degraw, Colbie Caillat and a summer tour with Train. Look for Zach to embark on yet another headlining tour with Andy Grammer in spring 2013. While not on tour, Zach records in studios around town and regularly lays down tasty bass lines for Warner Bros. Producer Cook Classics. He also teaches music lessons from his personal studio and is in the process of getting out his own musical ideas.
Zach recalls how he fell in love with music: “My pops is/was an amazing self taught musician. I can remember when I was supposed to be asleep and I’d creep out of bed to see my dad wailing away on his bass. Man, I wanted to be just like him. I thank God that he saw that desire in me and began to cultivate my talent by putting my first lefty-bass in my hands when I was 10 years old. My little brother and sister took up drums and piano (also taught by pop) and boom! We were off! Lil' Jackson 3, performing for church and putting in countless hours of practice over the years...This industry has given me some of the most amazing experiences of my life, and yet some of the hardest, but I can honestly say that I am where I’m supposed to be: performing, teaching, learning and growing in music. No matter what field you're in, hopefully you're inspiring others with what's inside you...”
