About Me

At 14 years old, Zosia recorded her first 5-song professional studio demo, which lead to co-writing a full-length album the following year. After a short tour with her six-piece band in Las Vegas, Narada Michael Walden (Grammy-Winning producer) saw Zosia perform and flew her to San Francisco later that month. Working closely with Walden and his team at Tarpan Studios, Zosia recorded a solid Pop demo. During the ages 14-17 she was the in-house singer for a music house in West Hollywood named, Slogan. Here, Zosia worked with clients such as McDonalds and Bombay Sapphire. Immediately after graduating high school, Zosia moved to Los Angeles to intern at Slogan Studios, where she was moved up to manager and continued to sit in on sessions to learn Pro Tools.
In the years to follow, Zosia has toured as a paid musician playing guitar and singing. She was hired to tour with a group called, “Soul In The Machine” and recently performed at the Ultra Music Festival in Miami. Zosia and Producer/DJ, Chase Costello co-wrote ‘Open Your Heart’ which was released on Mondo Records and is played internationally on Sirius and BBC radio. MTV’s hit television show, “The Hills” sought out Zosia for her songwriting skills, and her customized song was placed on the show and in the seasons DVDs.
Currently attending Berklee College of Music, Zosia’s primary focus is finishing her dual majors in Music Production & Engineering and Music Business with an Entrepreneurial emphasis. As a writer and Content Editor of Berklee’s Music Business Journal, she maintains cutting edge and up-to-date industry information for her articles and readers.
