Their music is joyfully adventurous. Their message is Christ. Christian whimsical folk pop band Colton and Zara aren’t ordinary indie kids; they have created an authentically original presence in the music scene by being themselves and showing the love of Jesus.
Colton and Zara met at the young ages of 12 and 13. Their families attended church together, and from there they started a youth group band. Colton and Zara valued the musical kinship they had found in one another and continued to work together. Their music was eventually discovered online by Brandi Cyrus, elder sister of pop star Miley Cyrus, who was looking for new talent to showcase at the 2008 Band With a Mission in Nashville, TN. After a successful showcase, they were offered an A & R contract with indevo records. Their first EP, Whimsical Dreams, was released in Spring 2009.
With Hartke records, Colton and Zara soon released their first full-length album, My Favorite Day, in 2010. To build on their sound and expand the ministry, the pair chose to add four more members to their group: Stevie Davy (background vocals and hand percussion), Dustin Davy (percussion), Darren Schrag (bass guitar), Brendan Wein (Electric Guitar) The group is now working on their yet-to-be titled newest project, produced by Nashville producer/songwriter Dan Mitchell (“If You’re Gonna Play in Texas You Gotta Have a Fiddle in the Band”). The Lord has also blessed the band with the opportunity to record at Nashville’s premier recording facility, The Tracking Room.
Playing nearly 150 shows each year, The Colton and Zara Band is on a full time mission with their music. They aim to spread the message of Christ and inspire audiences to find personal happiness, love, and joy in Him. Life doesn’t have to be a stream of stress and chaos; through the power of the Holy Spirit, we can experience the abundant life God created us to have.
