Pop Songwriter, Zachary Lee, Releases Electric Disney Inspired Song “Once Upon A Time”
We’ve all had a time in our lives where we thought we were never going to find love. For Zachary Lee, that is where we meet him at the beginning of his new single, “Once Upon A Time.” You can listen to the new single here.
Released on January 21st, “Once Upon A Time” is a pop fairy tale. He weaves pieces and inspiration for all the classics right into the lyrics. Claiming he’s “a sucker for fairytales” Lee’s lyrics prove he’s for the “true love’s kiss” type of love.
Lee expertly references movies such as Snow White, Peter Pan, and Frozen, splicing in lyrics from Hercules, Lee does a magical job of bringing our childlike ears to life. Not only are the lyrics cleverly addressed, but the blend of cheerful instrumentals helps bring the song to life.
Zach says, “It's so important to me to believe that fairy tales can still come true. In some respect it's what keeps my romantic side alive in hopes that I will find that person out there! One thing people need more of is hope. The hope things will get better, the hope things aren't as dark as they seem, the hope that tomorrow is a new day and we can all live the life that we want as long as we don't stop believing" I hope this song shows and instills that in everyone."
Zachary Lee started out his music career slamming on a drum set at 4 years old. From there his dad combined him with his sister and formed their first band at age 8. Ever since that moment he has been writing music and rocking out on stage. He sang and played keyboard as his sister rocked the drums and best friend ZW played the lead guitar. They played about 10 original songs and from that moment knew music was what he wanted to do.
His dream began to form, growing with each show he played, every song he wrote, and each band he was a part of. While a part of the band, The World Outside (later changed to IF ONLY), he shared the stage with bands such as All American Rejects, Red Jumpsuit Apparatus, Fuel, Bowling For Soup, Cartel, Hawthorne Heights and more. Gradually he came into his own genre and his style began to form. Kicking off 2022, we hope to see more inspiring music from this artist.
