Kevin Garrett- singer/songwriter

“Zach Mullings is a powerful talent. His work ethic is unparalleled. I’ve not met someone else who takes on every role asked of him as effortlessly as Zach. I’m very lucky to call him my music director, amongst many other job titles, but even luckier to call him my friend. He does need more sleep though.”

Elliott Skinner- singer/songwriter

“Zach Mullings is master of rhythm and texture. I think he has an unmatched understanding of time and how to use his instrument to support the surrounding atmosphere of a song, while having a distinct voice. He is humble, hard working, a great friend, and is going to be significant force in how music is heard in our culture.”


"Mullings is the silent killer! Like the bat signal over Gotham, when we need Mullings to step up to bat he answers the call...The first time Mullings played with us he had zero rehearsal but locked in with the band like it was his 1000th playing these songs⁣...also he's got MAD CHOPS"
