Los Angeles Singer Songwriter Zach Churchill Releases “Surrender” Music Video
Los Angeles Singer Songwriter Zach Churchill bares his soul without reservation on his confessional, potent new album “Greater Than”, due for release on October 28, 2022. Lead single “Surrender” comes out July 15, and it’s an appropriate precursor to this bold project, exploring difficult feelings and painful trauma with a brave curious spirit. The single deals with addiction and hopelessness, yet there is healing and hope in it’s underlying music and message. Whether welcoming or foreboding, truth is Zach‘s artistic and life mantra, so those ready for thought-provoking self-inquiry will find this release refreshing.
Zach Churchill’s honesty is disarming, as is his dedication to his artistic craft. This is someone who has been through it all, which makes for genuine storytelling. Two more singles are planned for release prior to the full album in October.
Zach elaborates on the album-writing process, how it was therapeutic and encouraged him to trust his inner compass: “Greater Than was written and recorded in Sherman Oaks, CA with my producer and friend, Tom Rasulo. Amidst a bunch of changes and trials in my personal life, the studio was a refuge and safe place for me to process all that was happening. I was able to explore difficult feelings, reflect on my current circumstances, and digest painful experiences. Basically, this album was incredibly therapeutic. It represents an incredibly important period in my life when I finally began to trust myself.
The title track, “Greater Than”, is about making other people your Higher Power and then being disappointed when they let you down, and finally coming to terms with the painful truth that no human being will ever be able to save or fix you.
“Surrender” is about addiction being the result of untreated trauma. “Each day is the same, I wake up in pain, and repeat what I fear with no resolution.”
“The past, it is real, and it’s living inside you. This pain, it can heal, you can change if you want to…”
Zach has released a new live video for lead track “Surrender” on March 17. Watch on Youtube.
