Bio

Since the release of Good Thing late in 2011, Seven has risen from relative obscurity to being heralded as ‘the one to watch’ amongst his peers. Unwaveringly proud of his Gold Coast home, Seven’s (Zach Humphrey) back catalogue plays like a collage to the most classic summers. It is this refreshing take on the Australian Hip Hop genre that has seen Seven’s list of accolades and achievements grow rapidly in the last 24 months. After winning Triple J Unearthed’s ‘Mphazes’ competition with ‘Possums’, he went on to tour with Horrorshow and Spit Syndicate during 2011 promoting the debut Seven EP. Forever working, Seven went on to release the Floated EP in early 2012 and like ‘Possums’ before it, first single ‘Good Thing’ received High Rotation on national broadcaster JJJ aswell as being featured on numerous community radio stations and topping the AIR Independent radio charts for four consecutive weeks. This was not unnoticed by his peers; Seven has since been national support for 360 and Drapht, co-headlined an East Coast Tour with Allday, supported Spit Syndicate for their home town launch and delivered a red-hot set at both Sprung Festival’s. Renowned for his wild yet introspective live shows with Brisbane ally, Mr. Hill; the pair are in hot demand. “Outside, Seven stumbled onstage through the rain, swigging from a wine bottle and brandishing an inflatable dolphin: the Gold Coast version of Capt. Jack Sparrow. He delivered an infectious set of dance hip hop with fellow emcee Mr. Hill, with variations from demented jumping to stoned-out-of-your-brains swaying. All tastes have been catered for here, provided your number one priority is partying.” Frances Vinall, Tonedeaf.com.au After a year working on a greatly successful YouTube project with Mr Hill (netting over 200 000 views), Seven is now ready to release his third and final EP, In Transit. Darker than his previous EP’s, In Transit takes a look at the chaotic and nomadic life of Zach’s last two years. Seven has quickly cemented himself as a stayer amongst his peers and he’s nowhere near finished. In Transit is available for pre-order from May 31 via sevensies.bigcartel.com or iTunes.
