Perhaps, if we could only shed the weight of all our cares and concerns, we could become so light in spirit that the breeze of serendipity would sweep us off our feet and allow us to float on a pillow of wings towards some glorious stress-free future.

Zac Hanson was born on 22 October 1985 in Arlington, Virginia and grew up in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Zac was home-schooled by his mother and at a young age he and his brothers, future band matesTaylor and Isaac, discovered their father’s rock and roll albums and their love for music began to blossom.

In 1992, along with his two older brothers, he formed boyband Hanson and learnt to play drums, guitar and piano.

The band took the world by storm in 1997 with the release of their first major album and debut single MMMBop, which made it to number one on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.

Zac is still the second youngest artist to ever be nominated for a Grammy award when, at only 11-years-old, he was shortlisted in the Best Record of the Year category.

The Hanson boys formed their own record label 3CG in 2003 and have now played together for more than twenty years. In 2013 they released album Anthem, featuring the single Get the Girl Back which made huge waves in the indie market.

Zac married longtime girlfriend Kate Tucker in 2006 in front of 140 guests at the Second Ponce de Leon Baptist Church in Atlanta, Georgia. The couple have three children together: John, Junia and George Hanson.
