ZINNY - SINGER SONGWRITER
Unique, soulful, and revolutionary artist, Zinny is a solo artist making her mark on the global music scene. She is at the breaking out stage of her music career, though she plays music her whole life.
Sensual and candid describe her style correctly. With her songs often having a somber but upbeat feel empowers the listener to keep going no matter how hard life gets. The songs you can kick back and relax after a long day or keep you calm during life's challenging times.
Zinny often explores concepts of "the mind" in her songs — how a person thinks, reasons, perceives, wills, and feels as relating to music-making. Her influences span across various eras, resulting in a cocktail of sounds and not a specific genre, she lets her music fly and in her own word "I am a creative let me create for anyone if I feel like rapping: I will if I feel like making a hard rock: then I will. Music isn't one genre, is all".
Zinny put out her first solo release, "The way you make me feel" in Oct of 2012. The single showcases the artist's soft but impressionable vocals. From the opening line to the chorus's catchy rhythm, this love song was a favorite and an excellent opener to her music career.

Her music takes on an entire form of its own without genre boundaries. Often looking at life as moments we must cherish, Zinny's songs touch on controversial subjects while still crafting a chill vibe every time.
These days she's getting back in touch with her roots. Her latest single "Second Chance" signifying the end of an era where she will stop trying to cater to what everyone wants to hear and instead create what she wants from a place of passion. She's inspired by stories, sounds, and experiences in life, often touching on her struggles of growing up as a girl child in Nigeria and other issues such as depression. Zinny will release her second EP in January 2021, with her latest single and video out on the 26th of August 2020.
