About

Seattle-Based Artist

Zoser is a singer/songwriter and music bender with a soulful voice, thoughtful lyrics, and a guitar. Music grounds Zoser as he sings his way through the Puget Sound.   

As an up and coming Seattle artist, Zoser began playing guitar when he was just 10-years-old. By the age of 12, he began penning his own lyrics and performing to local audiences in his hometown of Augusta, Georgia. Zo remained a fixture on the local musical scene until relocating to Seattle where he graduated from West Seattle High School in 2018.

While in high school, Zoser was a gold medalist in the Seattle King County NAACP ACTSO competition where he went on to represent the branch at the National convention. He has been inducted into the Washington Young Laureates program and is currently an intern at Totem Star. At the beginning of this year, he was a semifinialist for SoundOff! 2019 and a member of More Music at The Moore.

Zoser's musical style can not be easily categorized. His music shifts seamlessly between pop, folk, and hip hop with influences ranging from Michael Kiwanuka to Childish Gambino. A simple six-string, in Zo’s hands, transforms into a “beat box,” lending percussive bass to funky hip-hop rhymes.

By culling and synthesizing seemingly disparate musical forms and influences, Zoser has crafted a sound that is wholly and undeniably his own.

The result is something spectacular to behold: a voice that conveys a world-weary ache and a bright optimism, and a sense of musicality that is both rhythmic and infectiously melodic. He is a singer, a storyteller and something of a revelation – not necessarily a soul singer but something more rare and precious – a singer with soul.

 

Zo's Notes

Songwriting = Personal Therapy

For me music is therapy and keeps me sane.  Whenever times got harsh, I’ve always just written it out.  Not everything seemed better but at least I got that frustration out on a piece of paper.  The next thing I know after writing a song people can relate to the song.  With my music I just want to connect with others and bring it to a safe place where people can be themselves and not worry about what others think.
