Zachary and Dylan Zmed are an Americana brother duo that specializes in the rich tradition of blood harmony singing. They are originally from the San Fernando Valley in Southern California and now reside in the hills of middle Tennessee. From 2012 to 2015 they gained a strong local following in LA as a guitar and mandolin duo performing original music and covers in a multitude of professional settings. Some notable accolades during that time include winning best song in the country music genre at the Global Peace Awards, as well as being a back up band for successful songwriter Billy Steinberg - co writer of #1 hits such as Like A Virgin (Madonna), True Colors (Cyndi Lauper), So Emotional (Whitney Houston), Eternal Flame (The Bangles) and Alone (Heart). Over the years The Zmed Brothers have opened for acts like Micheal Martin Murphy, Micheal McDonald, Ambrosia, The Alan Parsons Project, Player, The Young Dubliners, Fishbone, Kings Of Leon, and Chevy Metal to name a few. In 2015 The Zmed Brothers created a show that pays tribute to the pivotal music and history of Don and Phil Everly, The Everly Brothers Experience. Zach and Dylan express that, “We are not impersonators, instead we aim to honor their brotherly legacy through our own spirits. As song writers, as performers, and as brothers - their story has taught us, and continues to teach us, so much.” Through their love of music history, spirited-front porch style performing, and Smothers Brothers esq. banter, Zach and Dylan always weave together a personal and heartfelt program featuring original songs, classic Everly songs (Bye Bye Love, Wake Up Lil Susie, Cathys Clown, All I Have To Do Is Dream, Love Hurts + more), and an ever growing selection of 50’s and 60’s timeless cross-genre hits from the great American song book sung in blood harmony style (Heartbreak Hotel, White Lightning, I Can’t Stop Loving You, Mama Tried, and many more). In 2022, The Zmed Brothers completed their debut EP of original music, and continue to balance playing shows nationally and internationally as both The Zmed Brothers and as The Everly Brothers Experience.
