About Andrew Z
Zaragoza is the acoustic solo project of Drew Zaragoza, a Los Angeles guitarist and singer/songwriter best known as the frontman for the power metal trio Sinicle. Tapping into the lighter side of his influences, Zaragoza issued the breezy, acoustic rock EP, Child of the Sun, in 2019.
A native of Reno, Nevada, Zaragoza grew up playing blues and rock music with his father and eventually formed the band Sinicle, with whom he moved to Los Angeles to attend the Musicians Institute. Over the course of ten years, the band released multiple EPs and albums, playing a mix of classic Black Sabbath-influenced metal and bluesy hard rock and establishing themselves on the West Coast club and festival circuit. Following Sinicle's 2017 release, Angels & Demons, Zaragoza began working on a set of acoustic songs that melded low-key folk-pop with intricate guitar work and positive lyrics. Working with L.A. producer Mikal Reid, he recorded his debut solo EP, Child of the Sun, and released it in April 2019.
