For 18-year-old singer-songwriter, Zola Simone, music is much more than just a passion; it’s a way to make sense of the world and move through the ever-changing conditions of life. Her unique and refreshing sound that blends indie, pop, and R&B matched with her raw, vulnerable, and honest lyrics is what sets her apart from many of her peers. Simone’s music manages to traverse the challenging terrain of being both deeply personal and undeniably relatable.

At such a young age, Zola has already learned the importance of her individuality. She is not afraid to unapologetically express herself as an artist through her music and her aesthetic. Her inspirational path as an artist has already garnered impressive success. Her first full length album, Now You See Me, released in August 2021 has amassed almost 1,000,000 streams on Spotify and her single Easy was featured in the season finale of the Netflix original series Atypical. Easy also won Song of the Year at the 2021 Boston Music Awards, where Simone, nominated in four categories including Pop Artist of The Year and Album of The Year, also took home the prize for New Artist of the Year.
