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 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."
