Noted for his  “brainy guitar chops” and harnessing his family’s “unsparing world view” by The New York Times, singer-songwriter ZAK HOBBS is a native Londoner who has also worked as a celebrated guitarist on both sides of the Atlantic; famously the grandson of singer-songwriters Richard and Linda Thompson, after growing up working with and around family and friends he embarked on a solo career of his own.
Starting out heavily influenced by the folk music revival of the 60’s and into the songwriter movement that followed into the 70’s, his work has been noted to be “not unlike something…John Martyn might have spat out in the late 1960’s” by Uncut.  Later however, 50’s country, rock and roll as well as the roots music of the USA began to form a transatlantic style whilst maintaining his “British-accented Melancholy”.
Since starting his career, he has been fortunate to work alongside amazing artist including, Rufus and Martha Wainwright, Emmylou Harris, Martin Carthy, Eliza Carthy and Martin Simpson. As a solo artist his most recent all acoustic E.P “Falling on Deaf Ears” has just been released and is noted by producer John Chelew as “singular and traditional, a tough combo”.
In 2015, Zak and his family released the album Family, a collaborative project in which each member of the extended family wrote and recorded two songs–from wherever they live.  This meant that recording took place from Los Angeles to London, then the final product was produced by Uncle Teddy in New York.  It was released in early 2015 under the name Thompson.
