Eelco van Zanten
Eelco van Zanten (1976, Amsterdam) has been writing, producing, releasing & performing music since the 90s, worked with several household names in the NL music business & played the biggest festivals & stages in NL and across Europe.
In 2019 Eelco decided that after years of releasing pop, rock, hiphop, EDM and electronic music, it was time to revisit his passion for instrumental guitar music. On ‘EZ GUITAR THANG’, Van Zanten would publish a track a week on youtube & instagram from 2019 into 2020. Resulting in a 15-track album of guitar tunes that Guitarist Magazine (NL) called an “Excellent guitar fusion album filled with versatile and melodically interesting guitar work”.
The end of 2020 brought ‘Fantasy Check’, where Van Zanten further develops his über eclectic sound with a more focused album approach & versatile track selection that received more great reviews & love from the guitar community.
With the latest release ‘Passion & Software’, EZ delivers his most colourful record to date, featuring guest performances from international guitar maestro’s Brett Stine, Juan Dhas and Richard Hallebeek.
