Zachary Jeymz C. Abalos, a.k.a “Zach Jeymz,” is a 19-year-old guitar phenom from Manila, Philippines. Zach was born and raised in Manila, the capital of the Philippines. His father, Jerome Abalos was the front man of several rock bands and is a celebrity in the local entertainment scene.
Zach was literally introduced to music the moment he was conceived. His dad played rock music, from Black Sabbath to Pantera aloud, almost all the time, exposing Zacks’s unborn ears to different genre of rock music.
When Zach was about 5 years old, his parents saw him holding a badminton racket as a guitar, and fiddled with it. That was when his parents knew Zack would someday become a guitar player.
As a son of a rock musician, he started seriously playing guitar around age 15. At 16, he and his three other brothers, Sean, lead singer and keyboard player, Shane, drummer, and Andy, bass player, played their first gig at a local battle of the bands. The following year, Zach, Shane, and Sean joined their dad and formed a band named SOLABROS.com.
Now 19, Zach has played with their family’s band in countless gigs all over the country. SOLABROS.com played in front 55,000 people at the world’s biggest indoor arena, The Philippine Arena.
Zach is poised to be one of music’s next great guitar players, a virtuosic talent capable of playing rock, heavy metal, and more. Zach knew he wanted to pursue a career in music from an early age. As a freshman in college, Zach took a course in information technology and plans to finish his college education.
“I always knew I am going to be a musician. But I think, finishing my college education is another purpose in life that I need to fulfill.” Zach said.
Zack’s dad introduced him to the music of guitar greats like Jimmy Page, John Petrucci, Steve Vai, Joe Satrianni, and Dimebag Darrel.
“Growing up with a family of musicians, at our free time, I’d sit and play my guitar for hours practicing, sharpening my skills,” Zach said.
Zach’s effort paid off when he, together with SOLABROS.com signed up with DNA Records, a subsidiary of Star Records of ABS-CBN Corporation. Currently, Zach with SOLABROS.com are under contract with Viva Records, Philippines. With the group’s debut album, due in 2021, Zach has also established himself as the band’s lead guitar player.
