ABOUT ZOSER Zoser is a Seattle-based singer/songwriter and music bender with a soulful voice, thoughtful lyrics, and a guitar.
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 music scene until relocating to Seattle where he graduated from West Seattle High School in 2018.
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 “beatbox,” 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 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.
