Hi! My name is Zack Carpenter, I am a singer songwriter. I have been living in Southern California since 1990 when I moved from Oakland California to join the Navy. After a tour in Desert Storm I returned home, bought a Harley and began to see the country the best way there is, I enjoyed riding so much I became a member of a motorcycle club in 1999. in 2003 I was indicted in a RICO case and spent a few years in federal prison awaiting trial. In an effort to quiet my rebellion, the warden allowed me a guitar in my cell.In the time leading up to my arrest I had been struggling with addiction and alcoholism. I have remained clean and sober for 13 years and in doing so, I have reflected on many stories and feelings that have found their way into my music. I hope you enjoy my stories.
