Ones To Watch 2017: Zak Abel Q&A

Zak Abel first came to a lot of people’s attention as the main vocalist on Gorgon City’s crossover 2014 hit “Unmissable”. He’s been releasing great singles ever since and now with his debut album set for release in early 2017 and two hotly anticipated London shows at Scala in the diary, it looks like the twelve months is going to be a huge one. We think he’s great, so made him one of our 2017 Ones To Watch. We had a quick catch up with Zak, which you can read below. Enjoy!

Hi Zak! How are you today? 
Hello! I’m doing good today thank you, I’ve slept for a good 10 hours so I feel very rested.

Congratulations on making our Ones To Watch list!
Thank you very much – it’s an honour.

How on earth do you get your voice to sound so good?
You should hear it on Mars, it sounds terrible!

Your debut album Only When We’re Naked comes out in February. What can people expect from the record?
Full nudity throughout.

If you could play a gig anywhere in the world, where would you play and who else would be on the bill?
I would love to play in Brazil at some point. I love Brazilian funk and soul music! Also I want to play in the US eventually. Apparently the audience is always up for a good time!

What are you most looking forward to in 2017?
I’m looking forward to having an album out that I’m super proud of and also I want to get started on my first headline tour!!

Thanks Zak!
