Zoe Gawd prepares to shock the world with new album ‘Blanco’
QUEENS, NY – Zoe Gawd, born and raised in Jamaica, Queens, New York has been ascending in the Hip Hop scene since her start in 2016. Molded by the legendary landscape of the 90s, she began putting pen to poetry at the age of 8 and has since proven to be an award-winning talent whose unique sound and style is gaining increased attention along the East Coast. Her new album, “Blanco” set to be released in mid-May, will be one that will put her on the map all across the U.S. and even internationally.
The project is one that Zoe said serves as a bold introduction of her talents as an artist. It displays her ability to write compelling lyrics across a diverse spectrum of genres and sounds.
“I want this to be a ‘Wow!’ moment for people,” she said. “I’m showing off my skills – I can rap and sing melodies and make commercial music and write indie songs and do all kinds of different things. So you’re getting a lot of my talents all on one project. So essentially it’s an introduction to me, and me bragging in a way.”
Although Zoe has had a bit of a slow start to her recording career, she hasn’t looked back or taken her foot off the pedal. She’s worked relentlessly to release singles and music videos, and she embraces the fast-paced and demanding lifestyle of a full-time musician. Over the past few years, she’s worked hard to create high-quality music that allows her to share her emotions with listeners while also providing them an outlet for their own emotions.
“I really want to inspire people with my music,” she said. “I’m writing about day-to-day life things – feelings and love and life and fun and just anything you can think of. That makes me relatable to just about everyone. And what I really want people to get from me is that they can be whatever they want to be. If you want to be a garbage man, you can be the best garbage man in the world. You don’t have to change yourself to be successful. A lot of my music is me coming to terms with myself and becoming comfortable with the skin I’m in. I want that message to be spread to everyone my music touches – to be just as confident. When I’m in the booth, I’m confident. And if I can take that energy and share it with others so that it becomes their energy, then I feel like I’ve done what I’ve been put on this earth to do.”
In many ways, Zoe Gawd is the whole package as an artist. She’s a writer, a producer, a singer, a rapper, and a fashion influencer whose lifestyle is one that is inspiring many followers.
Three of Zoe’s singles from the forthcoming album are already available for listeners to check out. “Safe” is a fun song full of motivation that inspires people to get up and get out there to chase their dreams. She calls it her “go-getter song.” There’s also “No Favors” which is more melody-based than “Safe” and offers listeners the challenge to focus on themselves and avoid doing favors for those who aren’t appreciative of the kindness. And finally, Zoe has “Hoodie Rockin,” which is a straight freestyle rap with a slight hook that shows off her ability to go crazy on a beat.
