BioEmily Zuzik is known as much for her powerful voice as for her creative style. With her debut solo release, she combines her inspirations, ranging from Stevie Wonder, the Beatles and Madonna into a musical gumbo. The Brooklyn-based singer-songwriter brings powerful vocals, pop hooks and rock swagger from recording to every performance.
Time Out NY raves, "Emily Zuzik's voice ranges from a sweet and alluring croon to a low growl that would charm even the most world-weary." Her album, The Way It's Got to Be, earned her a Performing Songwriter Magazine's DIY Pick and Epiphone Guitars artist endorsement.
Before launching a solo career, she played with songwriter Ben Ratliff in the band Sexfresh, whose debut album The Fainting Room received wide critical acclaim. Emily plays with Ben as an acoustic duo, as well as solo. She has played with other groups like Funkmobile, WAMMIE-awarded Shitty Shitty Band Band and Southern Frost.
Emily is also heavily involved in the women's music community, as a member of Indiegrrl, Gogirlsmusic and Womanrock. She is also Events Coordinator for Womanrock.com. In 2003, she and fellow NYer, Athena Reich, formed Siren's Wild Ride, a nationally touring collective of female singer-songwriters.
