Alumnus and accomplished musician Zach Gill launches latest season of UCSB Amplified with original song “Watch ‘Em Grow”

Santa Barbara, CA
Zach Gill + Friends perform “Watch ‘Em Grow” for UCSB Amplified

One of the most prominent musicians among UC Santa Barbara alumni — next to Jack Johnson — is singer-songwriter Zach Gill. Funny enough, Gill often is next to Johnson. Literally. The Animal Liberation Orchestra frontman is a longtime bandmate, friend and collaborator of Johnson; the two met as UCSB students.

Gill, who also performs as a solo artist, is returning to campus to launch the new season of UCSB Amplified, the performance series featuring students, faculty, staff and alumni. With a song written for his daughters, Gill’s session is now live online.  

Offering another diverse array of performers and musical styles, Amplified’s new round of weekly recordings feature classical trumpet player David Nakazano, violist Angela Miller, pianist Wan Pei, marimba from Nick Diamantides and more. 

UCSB Amplified’s live-recorded mini-concerts showcase the campus’s exceptional talent and diverse music scene.
