It’s rare in music for any artist to enjoy extensive critical or commercial success. It’s rarer still for that artist to enjoy them both, and simultaneously. For such acclaim to be garnered by an emerging artist is almost unheard of, but for Los Angeles-based alternative/electronic singer-songwriter Zealyn, it’s simply reality. Billboard Magazine hails her songwriting as “poetic.” Nylon calls her musicianship “empowering.” The Autumn Roses writes that Zealyn’s music is “fluid and smart, relentlessly tuneful and electrified by an easy cool.”
This rousing critical praise for the 24-year-old artist’s 2016 debut EP, Limbic System, was quickly met by an equal measure of commercial success with the EP rapidly cracking the Top 40 on iTunes’ Alternative Charts. Produced by Aaron Marsh (lead singer of famed indie-rock band Copeland), Limbic System surprised critics and music lovers alike with its innovative melding of electronic and pop elements, and most importantly, Zealyn’s craft as a lyricist. Her voice, both instantly recognizable yet distinctly unique, was praised by the tastemakers at The Daily Listening as one “made of gold.”
Not wanting to rest on her laurels, Zealyn took to the road following the EP’s release, touring extensively in 2017 for a 31-city, 24-state national coast-to-coast headlining tour of the United States. Packed venues of fans witnessed her bring Limbic System to the stage, with the kind of electrifying performances emerging artists are rarely capable of. Kicking off 2018, Zealyn brought Limbic System to London for her debut UK show, selling out the room.
Now releasing new music regularly and always working on her next release, Zealyn’s bright future continues to be fueled by her tireless commitment to her vision and to her music. And, the commitment and excitement of her new-found legion of fans appears every bit equal to the task. Zealyn will be embarking on a series of tours in 2019 throughout the United States and Europe.
