Ritte Riders: Zach Cowie

Ritte Riders: Zach Cowie

August 30, 2021

Emmy-nominated music supervisor Zach Cowie has spent his entire adult life working with music— beginning at record labels (such as Touch & Go, Sub Pop, Drag City, Rhino/Warner Bros, and Light In The Attic for whom zach occasionally still produces reissues for), moving on to tour management (with Joanna Newsom, Devendra Banhart, Vetiver, Vashti Bunyan, Pantha Du Prince), and later becoming a touring DJ (for Animal Collective, Fleet Foxes).

Zach's work grew into roles as a music supervisor and consultant for film (Celeste & Jesse Forever, The Little Hours, State Like Sleep, Tigertail, Isn’t It Romantic?, Emma., Judas And The Black Messiah), television (Master of None, Forever, On Becoming A God In Central Florida, Little America), and fashion (Rodarte). 

Interspersed with all of the above, he has continued to DJ internationally (since 2001), often with DJ partner Elijah Wood under the moniker "Wooden Wisdom."

Above all though, Zach is a record collector and an obsessed cyclist. He has taken his Ritte Phantom everywhere from Griffith Park, in his home of Los Angeles, to Massachusetts for events like D2R2. On a warm afternoon in June, I rode with Zach here in LA - afterwards he invited me up to his loft for a listening session.
