TK The Architect
TK the Architect has spent his life finding a balance. Raised in Long Island, NY by his Japanese mother and Italian-American father, TK (born Zach Takayuki Zanghi) grew up in a bilingual household, where bringing disparate worlds together became a way of life.
TK has been building a resume of honest music with his tight-knit network for years, and its integrity remains an integral part of his philosophy. As a founder of the creative collective CON TEMPLATE, unification for the purpose of collective growth has become a pillar in TK's life.
TK’s music provides a glimpse into the world as he sees it, with a unique lens focused on the human experience we all share despite our differences. A blend of influences have helped create his genre-blurring approach to Hip-Hop. Live performances range from stripped-down guitar loop sets to high-energy full-band shows featuring his band of fellow CON TEMPLATE members, The Get Back Kids.
"The coolest thing you’ll hear this month"
"The Japanese-American, New York-based emcee and multi-instrumentalist has a knack for creating engaging, open and real tunes with lush, enveloping production and beats."
