Zander Bleck was born and raised to humble beginnings in rural Hunterdon County, New Jersey. His mother a school teacher, his father a filmmaker, local radio DJ, and musician once signed in 1980 to Millennium/RCA Records. Zander was exposed to all genres of music at a young age taking a keen interest in Classical, World, and Rock music. He would often help his father interview musicians on his father’s local radio show. Melodies and music came naturally to young Zander, impressing his family with his ability to sing or whistle verbatim complex melodies after just one listen. Beside his love for music, Zander excelled in athletics focusing mostly on baseball and basketball. As a teenager, Zander was spotted by a modeling Agent who pursued Zander to start a career as a fashion model. At 17 Zander moved to New York City with only $400 in his pocket to work as a full-time model signed to Major Model Management.
After a bit of couch surfing, trying to make ends meet, Zander started landing jobs and began traveling the world as a print and runway model working for clients such as Diesel, Etro, Armani Exchange, Sunglass Hut, and more. At 19, never desiring a long career as a model, Zander quickly focused his energy on his love of music, and officially began his career as a self-taught vocalist/musician. He began writing, and singing his songs with his first band "Monument". Falling in love with the art of singing, writing, and performing, Zander dedicated himself to studying, crafting, and finding his "voice" while studying with the renowned Manhattan School of Music Classical Voice Department.
