Video Premiere: "The Waves" - Sofar Sounds Session
"In case you missed it yesterday, Dallas singer-songwriter Zach Balch was on Good Morning Texas, performing his song 'Gettin’ Through to You'. I expected the performance to be good. I was wrong. It was absolutely incredible. Fans of Luke Wade need to check him out, as Mr. Balch is every bit as strong of a vocalist as the former Voice contestant. This song balances a simplistic folkish charm with a passionate, soulful plea that is executed flawlessly by Mr. Balch."

ALBUM REVIEW: DFW.COM
"There’s such an unforced charm to Dallas-based singer-songwriter Zach Balch’s sophomore album, Good Gets Better, that you can’t help but give yourself over to its amiable pleasures.
The Lubbock native’s first full-length in four years, following his 2011 debut Verses, is a highly polished affair slipping easily between pop, rock, folk, blues, jazz, soul and country.
Balch’s engaging tenor is the thread connecting the diverse compositions — produced by Balch and Bradley Prakope — which also features cameos from Austin’s Grooveline Horns, along with area vocalists Karyna Micaela, Ellen Hinton, Mikaela Kahn and Sarah Sellers.
Whether it’s the sultry lament Follow You Down or the mischievously brief title track (which still gets its point across in less than 60 seconds), Balch makes heartfelt, sleek music seem as effortless as a sunny day."

ALBUM REVIEW: DAYS WITH DESTINY
"Zach himself is promising the album to be his most personal collection, claiming that it shares 'my heartaches, my failures, and coming clean about how I want to be.' The Good Gets Better is an honest reflection on the past, his experiences, and his goals for the future, all presented in eleven neatly produced, stunning tracks with an honesty and wit that is characteristic of Zach’s music."
