Zach Baird graduated from the Arts Magnet, Booker T. Washington High School for the Performing and Visual Arts in Dallas, Texas. A high school that has produced other artist such as musicians Edie Brickell, Erykah Badu, jazz trumpet player Roy Hargrove, singer song writer Patrice Pike and singer Norah Jones.
His first project was a 15 piece funk band called Whitey but he then joined the band BillyGoat in 1990 and was a member for six years. Over the years he either founded or was involved in numerous other projects and bands, including:
Decadent Dub Team
Baird has collaborated with artists from many various music genres, including Edie Brickell, Everlast, Evanescence (provided programming for their debut album "Fallen"), Colin Hay, Daniel Powter, Mike Dillon, and Stone Gossard.
He was auditioned for Nine Inch Nails:
“ I never even met Trent Reznor. I just played along with a prerecorded tape. They had this work area set up where there were no other musicians to play along with, and the guys in the band all sat up in this dark balcony area where I couldn't even see them. Or, at least I think they were up there. It was just weird. ”
He was also auditioned for the Grammy-awarded alternative artist Beck, he describes it as great experience:
“ Trying out for Beck's band was great. He was just set up in this cool little room, and we jammed on five or six of his songs. ”
He was touring with pop singer and pianist, Daniel Powter in Europe in 2005.
He has recently been working with the band Korn, touring with them worldwide as a masked horse ( Which in turn, he got his nickname "Horse") in See You on the Other Side tour, as well as in their 2006 edition of Family Values Tour. He has temporarily joined the band for their eighth studio album.
Collaboration with Korn and his previous projects was quite a difference for him:
“ This has really been a trip. I've been working here all day long every day at the band's rehearsal space at S.I.R. Studios in Hollywood, just learning every song and getting used to all of this amazing gear. ”
On December 9, 2006 Baird performed with the band on MTV Unplugged: Korn playing piano.
After the Bitch we got a problem tour Baird continued to work with KoRn frontman Jonathan Davis on his Alone I Play tour as a part of his backing band SFA.
Baird has also contributed with work on KoRn guitarist Munky's solo project Fear and the Nervous System.
In late 2009 and early 2010, Baird was part of Adam Lambert's band providing programming, working as his music director and playing keyboards.
2011 was the year of James "Munky" Shaffer of Korn solo project Fear and the Nervous system featuring Zac on Keyboards. With an undetermined second album or tour.
Baird is still with Korn on their upcoming 2013 "The Paradigm Shift" Tour and has been a staple of Korn's live show since 2006.
