Z Chambers Is Trapped On A Tightrope

The L.A. popster is in a difficult romantic spot on his latest single and video.


Z Chambers struggles to keep his balance on an emotional Tightrope in his newest single and video — showcasing today on Tinnitist.

Featuring intriguingly melodic vocals paired with a mysteriously somber yet upbeat score, the Los Angeles native and pop/R&B artist’s latest single delivers a poignant message sure to resonate with younger generations. The song is at once dark and uplifting, with a relatable message that perfectly encapsulates the desperation of clinging to defunct relationships and how it feels to change who you are in service of others.

For Chambers, the tightrope metaphor is a representation of what it felt like to maintain any semblance of balance in his life as he struggled to keep things from falling apart. “When I was writing Tightrope, I was in a difficult place,” said Z, who co-wrote the track for his upcoming EP. “I felt like I had to walk on eggshells to avoid upsetting (anyone). It was like a masquerade. I had to wear a different mask depending on who I was around. It was suffocating. I wanted to capture these feelings in a song.”

Chambers discovered his love for art and music at an early age and began participating in talent shows. Inspired by artists such as Justin Timberlake, Ne-Yo, Linkin Park and Coldplay, he started writing music and performing at local venues. After high school, he moved to Hollywood to pursue a career in music.

He has worked with several producers in developing his music, and has built up a collection of songs while pursuing his passion. He describes his sound as melodic contemporary pop with shades of R&B. Chambers continues to work on his new EP with his co-writer. “Exchanging our thoughts on the song proved to be a fascinating experience, and I’m confident that many others have experienced something similar. The power of collective creativity and shared emotions is truly special.”
