Emerging from a background of multiple genres, Zack Arnett was inspired to take his storytelling on an entirely new journey, set against an indie/pop sound resembling the synthesizers and dance-centric beats of the 80's to the catchy vocal melodies of today's emerging indie artists. Thus, Fire in the Hamptons was born.
In 2010, Zack connected with award-winning producer/composer, Bert Selen. The two combined their eclectic talents and, nearly a year later, completed the Fire In The Hamptons full-length album, “F.I.T.H.” The record, mastered by Grammy award-winning engineer Brad Blackwood, features standouts “Humanimal,” “Children of the Sun,” and “Stargazer,” which one music blogger describes as “one of those tracks that leaves you hooked on the first listen.” The young album has already had music featured in TV shows including “Gossip Girl,” “Jersey Shore,” “Snooki & Jwoww” and online promos for Vogue Magazine. “Humanimal” has been played on LA’s tastemaker radio station, KCRW.
On stage, the music comes alive with enough energy to make venue security dance. The four-piece band is lead by Zack on vocals, Aaron Bilyeu on drums, Ian Dowd on guitar and Emvy Venti on synth/piano. Since their first show in 2012, Fire in the Hamptons has been building a buzz that keeps fueling their fire. They performed at the indie music festival “Echo Park Rising,” headlined Monterey’s festival “First Night Monterey,” they’ve opened for Samantha Ronson and performed at a KROQ “Locals Only” showcase at the Roxy Theatre, headlined by Youngblood Hawke.
