About Zo

With a sound as epic as the Dave Matthews Band, infectious as Michael Franti, and soulful as Ben Harper, Zo Tobi delivers a powerful soundtrack for change that stays with you even after the music ends.

Zo’s debut EP, Blessed Unrest, was funded by a groundswell of fan support, and adds to a resurgence of music with a message. In-studio and onstage, acoustic or full-band, Zo’s rhythmic grooves, musical prowess, lyrical depth, and emotional power go to the heart of who we are and what we’re here to contribute.

As an apathetic 16-year old, Zo’s life changed course when his 80-year old mentor told him: “When you’re my age, your grandkids will ask what you did with your life.” Since then, he has become an organizer for social & environmental causes, a certified professional leadership coach, and a musician who will be making waves for some time to come.
