Zion Napier hails from a small Midwest town in Indiana called Scipio. As the oldest of four brothers, he found himself picking and singing his whole life. He grew up playing guitar, fiddle, and mandolin in family bluegrass-gospel groups. Outside of the bluegrass world, playing violin and bass in high school orchestra helped Zion to dive deeper into music gaining a love and appreciation for classical music. Some of Zion’s biggest musical influences are Josh Williams, Adam Steffey, Jesse Brock, and Dan Tyminski. Zion says, “I am honored to have been asked to join Caleb Daugherty's band on the mandolin and I look forward to continue making new music with Caleb." In addition to playing music with Caleb Daugherty, Zion also plays mandolin with Modern Tradition and The New Balance. Zion would like to thank God first of all for blessing him with the ability and talent to pick with such amazing musicians. Zion goes on to say, "I would also like to personally thank my wife Kimberly, my daughter Abigail, and my son Adam, all of my family, The Harman family, The Wasson Family, and Eric Jarboe. Without all of your support and teachings I would not be where I am today! God bless you all!"
