Formed by singer/songwriter and American Idol Season XV contestant Harrison Cohen, the band is comprised of Chris Baglivo, Braxton Borine, Harrison Brietling and Instagram influencer Dan Silver (@thedrummingbeat). Their sound can be described as a mix between Arctic Monkeys, Maroon 5 and The Kooks with influences ranging from Daniel Caesar to Paul Simon.
In October 2017, Z by Z performed their song "No Time" on iHeartRadio’s Radio 104.5 FM. Within the past few months, the band has released three EPs with their song “Miss Mystery” amassing 40K+ Spotify streams. Z by Z has spent the past year performing across the east coast, including a sold-out show at PhilaMOCA in December 2018 and a SoFar performance in DC. Cohen’s songwriting has garnered praise from platinum recording artists such as Jennifer Lopez and Keith Urban. After hearing “No Time,” Lopez commented, “I really liked it, I felt like I could hear that song on the radio.”
