What is a Zoubi? They are a quirky, quiet creature raised in the woods on Hornby Island, BC. Seeing much success with their 2016 fromed band in Victoria, BC, Zoubi and the Sea performed a multitude of West Coast music festivals and opened for Jon and Roy, Tara Lightfoot, Rising Appalachia, Fortune Killers and Carmanah. In 2017, Zoubi's unshakable passion for music brought them to Toronto, where they studied Independent Songwriting and Performance at Seneca College. A naturally magnetic performer, Zoubi plays finger-style guitar and engages with their audience emotionally while blending deep lyrics with simple, catchy melodies. Their live show is complete with charming anecdotes and when accompanied by the band, Zoubi and the Sea melds Feist-like folk-pop tones with a psychedelic feel and bouts of intensity. Off stage and on, Zoubi possesses an endearingly genuine creative spark that catches and holds your attention. In performance, the band showcases vulnerability as a strength and a bold silliness that translates as a punk rock attitude.
Currently studying Music Production in Nelson, BC, Zoubi plans to return to the coast in 2023 and dive back into the scene.
