The day after singer/songwriter Zachary Goode was born, the Beatles publicly announced their break-up. He’s been trying to bring them back ever since.
Born in NYC and brought up in the small artist’s community of Provincetown, Massachusetts, Goode began writing, acting, and singing at a young age. Attending the legendary Saint Ann’s Performing Arts School in Brooklyn alongside future stars like the Beastie Boys and Jennifer Connelly and receiving classical training at Stagedoor Manor and Appel Farm Arts and Music Center in New York, he sang and acted in dozens of plays and musicals, even performing in an Off-Broadway production of Runaways as a child.
In the ‘90s, Goode fronted the San Diego band Ghoulspoon (SDMA winner Best Hard Rock Band). Ghoulspoon distinguished itself in the San Diego music scene of the early 1990s, with its classic lineup of Goode (vocals), Jeremy Ronstadt (guitar), Jason Cooper (guitar), Rice Enright (bass), and Jason Vick (drums). Ronstadt is the first cousin of singer Linda Ronstadt.
All those members other than Cooper later formed the band Divided by Zero, with Jason Cooper replaced by former roadie, James "Spooky" Albers on guitar. Their first album was released by local clothier Sik World Productions, which launched its own record label in 2006. The band was a San Diego Music Award nominee for Best Hard Rock Album, for their album Black Sea.
After Divided by Zero went on hiatus in 2007, Goode went on to play with the Secret Seven and the Weezer tribute band Geezer. In 2012, Rice Enright joined hip-hop metalband Hi Def Dynamite.
