As soulful multi-Instrumentalist and producer from Detroit, Zo! has had the pleasure of working with rapper Phonte from Little Brother, The Foreign Exchange, and more recently with singer Sy, who is also a back-up singer for Sheila-E. You’ll know him from the breathtaking beautiful track ‘If she breaks your heart’ which features in The Foreign Exchange album ‘Leave it all behind.’ I caught with Zo! last year to see what we can expect from his latest project ‘Man Made’ due to release in spring, the most unusual instrument he has used whilst producing, and why he doesn’t want to go to his grave without passing on music. Margaret Tra writes.
Are you just currently on tour, or are you on a break?
We just came off. We just did like a weekend. Three cities, three days, came back yesterday.
How was it?
It was…those joints are tiring! You’re driving, you’re performing, same day, but it’s all, it’s all worth it man.
Sounds like one thing after the next. A lot of shows backed up?
Like 3, 4 hours of sleep each night.
