Zac Maloy

September 20, 2017

Zac Maloy is an acclaimed, award-winning songwriter and producer whose songs have been featured on numerous top-charting albums. Born and raised in Ada, Oklahoma, Zac began playing music at a very young age. After graduating high school Zac formed a band, The Nixons, while attending the University of Oklahoma. After playing hundreds of local shows they decided to tour regionally, then across the country. Several radio stations began playing the band’s indie album which led to offers from multiple record labels. The band inked a deal and released three albums on MCA/Universal Records. Their first album, Foma, scored Rock hits “Wire” and “Happy Song.” Their 3rd single from Foma, “Sister,” reached the top of the Rock charts and eventually crossed over to Top-40 with heavy rotation on MTV. The success from Foma paved the way for several more chart toppers, including the Rock hit “Baton Rouge” and Zac’s solo release “Early Morning Phone Call.” The Nixons toured relentlessly and quickly developed a reputation as one of the hardest working bands of their genre, completing worldwide tours with Radiohead, Soul Asylum, Kiss and Bush.

Once The Nixons went on hiatus, Zac began writing and producing for other artists. One of his first cuts was “Used To” on Daughtry’s eponymous first album, which has gone five-times platinum worldwide. This opened the door for Zac to score singles in a range of genres, including Carrie Underwood’s #1 single “Temporary Home,” and Skillet’s #1 single “American Noise.” Now viewed as a multi-faceted writer, Zac is called upon to write a wide variety of music from Carrie Underwood to Uncle Kracker; Tim McGraw to Shinedown; Halestorm to Blake Shelton.

Zac and the original lineup of The Nixons have reunited and are back touring and releasing new music. They recently did some headline dates, along with opening for the Smashing Pumpkins, as well as a co-headlining tour with fellow 90’s rockers Sponge. They have just released and are supporting the singles “Crutch” and “Letters” across all formats. The band released a new EP, Sonic Boom, and the vinyl version with bonus material is also available. The band is working on new material and will be announcing exciting tour info for 2022 soon.

Zac continues to write and currently has songs out including the latest Shinedown single “Atlas Falls” which hit number 1. He also has songs on releases by Tyler Bryant & the Shakedown, Black Veil Brides and Lilith Czar’s single, “Anarchy” which just achieved #1 status on Billboards recurrent rock chart. He continues to release his own music, and has forthcoming releases with Halestorm, Shinedown and Dorothy among others.
