Singer-songwriter, performer, and poet Zami, grew up in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and is currently based in Boston. Classically trained as a vocalist, Zami spent many years singing choir before developing a passion for writing songs at the age of 11. She pulls her inspiration from artists with a soulful edge, like Lianne La Havas, Sara Bareilles, and Corrine Bailey Rae. The influence of these artists has allowed Zami to merge genres like pop, R&B, and folk in her own writing. 

Zami plays guitar and piano, and she uses these as her primary means of writing. As a vocalist, she has performed in many venues on the East Coast, both self-accompanied and with her own band. In 2019 Zami performed as a featured singer in the Springfield Jazz Festival.

Currently, Zami is studying songwriting at Berklee. She is writing and producing her own solo project to be released this fall. Zami writes in order to ground herself and emote in a real and vulnerable way. She hopes that writing transparently will inspire young girls to explore the ideas of life, love, family, and beauty through music and to find comfort and healing in it, just as she has.
