Zac Mcmillan is an independent Canadian musician whose experiences growing up in Vancouver are echoed throughout his debut EP, “Burnabarian”, which he plans to release January 11th, 2019 with his current project - a collective of people, namely producer Andre “Sugar Jesus” Basirov, Nick Hobden, Sandy Buglass, Kentya Kurban, under the moniker “Zee & the Empties”. His style ranges from hip hop to blues, blending them together with a mix of funk and R&B that has come to be recognized as his signature sound. In his own words, his style is “my personal interpretation of new age soul music”.
Over the last two years the group has released three singles and two music videos off the album, with a third dropping just before the EP’s release in January. One of the singles, “What’s Left”, features IMUR’s Jenny Lea, a familiar face amongst the Vancouver music scene. Prior to the release, the group has played “Phillip’s Backyard Weekender” in Victoria, put on by “Do 250” Productions, and is set to host a release party in downtown Vancouver on February 28th.
