Episode #92: Zo! – Detroit-Born Musician, Producer, Composer

This week’s guest is the Detroit-born musician, producer, and composer Zo! (who you might remember as being Sy Smith’s recommendation on Episode #82). Zo! has built a great independent music career for himself as both a solo artist and a member of The Foreign Exchange collective. With a career spanning since the early 2000s, Zo! is a prime example of doing it on your own on your own terms. During our interview, we talk about his beginnings in music transitioning from being a baseball player, becoming an independent artist, his time as a school teacher, what it took to turn music into a serious career, and his time with The Foreign Exchange.

Each episode, the guest is asked to suggest someone from their life/career that should be on Fresh is the Word that would have good stories to tell. Zo! chose singer/songwriter Carmen Rodgers (@CarmenRodgers), producer Waajeed (@Waajeed_), and singer/songwriter Monica Blaire (@monicaBlaire).
