Doc ‘Zach Battiest’, a performance artist and talented music producer, runs his own sound studio in Hollywood, Florida. As a child, Doc traveled with his family’s gospel tour all over the country developing his ear for music and his eye for dramatic stylings. He spent his early teens honing those skills before taking time off from the stage.
He returned to his musical roots at age 16, when he began arranging, writing and performing hip hop and rap. Doc’s studio, Midnight Studios, opened in 2008 and was the birthplace of his first musical release, “The Storm.” He and his brother, Spencer, wrote the music and lyrics and the CD was produced by Midnight Studios.
Doc was invited to perform at Hard Rock Calling in London’s Hyde Park in 2008 and 2009 where he thrilled an audience of 100,000 with his passionate drumming, dancing and athleticism. A gifted musician, he plays the drums, bass and piano but writing and arranging is his focus. Doc, 22, is married with one child and is a proud member of the Seminole Tribe of Florida. He and his family reside in Hollywood
