In with the new and... in with the old? ZOLA’s music expertly combines the instrumentation and vocalization of the past with her present experiences.
Zola Johnson is a 22 year old singer, songwriter and musician from San Francisco, California. At age 6, Zola first picked up a guitar. Sixteen years later she would go on to release her amazing debut EP ‘Everything I Know,’ revealing the years of hard work. Her music is hard to pinpoint - self described as a mixture of jazz, soul, R&B and indie-pop. All these genres aren’t often seen together, yet Zola is able to meld them all into a sound that’s simultaneously familiar yet something you’ve never heard before.
In 2018 Zola released her first songs on Soundcloud and Spotify. Starting with two singles: “Too Fast Too Soon” and “Blue." Both from her EP, ‘Everything I Know,’ which she released in full October 2018 following the two singles.
This EP plays with vocals, often using simple instrumentals to create a playground for the words to dance on. Drawing from the power she found within herself, Zola Johnson has created a beautiful EP that encapsulates the fear, insecurity and excitement that comes with growing up.
