Created By Zac Maloy
Studio Automatic was created by Nashville musician, singer, songwriter and producer Zac Maloy.
Over his 20 years in the music business Zac has lived through virtually every scenario imaginable. As former singer/frontman/guitarist of MCA/Universal rock band, The Nixons, he co-produced the groups multiple albums. Those albums garnered several top ten charting songs at virtually every rock format, eventually achieving pop crossover success. “Sister,” “Baton Rouge,” “Happy Song,” and “Wire” are just a few of the band’s hit songs. The band toured with iconic artists like Kiss, Radiohead and more.
Since then he has produced and worked on projects for baby bands, mid-level artists as well as for major labels like Island Def Jam, Sony Records, Universal, Atlantic Records, Jive and more. Zac signed his first publishing deal in the mid 90’s, an artist deal with Universal Publishing. After transitioning into songwriting and producing, he signed a writer publishing deal with Sony/ATV where he spent 8 years. He recently made the move to Warner Chappell Publishing. He opened and ran his own Rosewater Studios in Tulsa until moving to Nashville a few years ago.
He has had over a hundred songs cut by major label artists including: Carrie Underwood, Tim McGraw, Blake Shelton, Halestorm, Daughtry, Barenaked Ladies, The Jonas Brothers, Hanson, Bowling For Soup, Jake Owen and many more.
