What musician, album, or song best describes what working at Steampunk means to you?

The Zac Brown Band (ZBB) story is as much of a disruption and entrepreneurial story as it is a success story and hits on every one of our Steampunk core values. They were a band that began small and evolved over time by connecting with people through the stories they told in their music People @ the Core. Zac Brown’s entrepreneurial spirit began when he started his own record label, called Southern Ground – which turned into one of their biggest community outreach programs Empower Your Community, Camp Southern Ground – a 400-acre camp located in Fayetteville, GA dedicated to the development and wellness of both kids and military veterans. 

The album Uncaged was the first time that ZBB stretched themselves outside their comfort zone Thrive Being Uncomfortable with music that couldn’t strictly be classified as just country. Uncaged ignited the band to explore the rock-oriented territory – which in turn, added new band members and instruments to their repertoire leading to new opportunities and collaborations Setting the Pace. To this day, their concerts continue to push the envelope of diverse sound, fan experience, and connecting through storytelling while always maintaining their country roots!
