Zachary Ostroff is a 20 year old musician, composer, and singer. His main instrument is the upright bass, but he also performs and records on guitar, drums, and, occasionally, piano. He straddles the jazz, classical, and rock worlds in his work as a leader, sideman, and soloist, performing in California (his home), in New York (where he is a student at Columbia University), and any of the other four corners of the world.

In 2011, he appeared on the GRAMMYs alongside Best New Artist, Esperanza Spalding. Zachary was also named the only 2011 U.S. Presidential Scholar in the Arts for jazz, one of the nations highest honors for achievement in the arts. In 2012, he was invited to participate as a member of the Americans for the Arts National Policy Roundtable hosted by Robert Redford along with Stanley Tucci, Robert Gupta, Bill Ivey, and other notable artists, actors, musicians and policy makers.

He draws his musical inspiration from good people, good ideas, good movies and [when he can get it] good food.
