Web site:

Zach Fountain began writing and recording music in the late 1990s, and began performing solo under the name Rushmore Beekeepers (borrowed from the movie Rushmore) in early 2001. He has since self-released five albums of original material written, recorded and performed all by himself. Occasionally Rushmore Beekeepers has taken on additional musicians, and sometimes performs with members of Love Morris and Fly Away Tigers, of Phoenix, AZ, his brother Tosh Perri of Las Cruces, NM, as well as other wonderful people.
