Zoubi And The Sea Wins Play Song & Surf Contest
We are pleased to announce that Zoubi And The Sea won the Play Song & Surf Contest this past week! After much deliberation (and the judges truly thank everyone single artist that participated), the panel voted after their hearts were admittedly won over.

What is a Zoubi? She is a quirky, quiet thing raised in the woods on Hornby Island, BC. She was once given a guitar and soon found peace in spilling her guts over tranquil melodies. Now, Zoubi’s folk sounds weave a cloth that Hannah Georgas may have crafted in the 1950’s. Her authenticity enchants and leads listeners through a whirlwind of emotional connection seated in folk-pop tunes. She seeks to share stories that are difficult to discuss and with grit and some giggles, does just that.
August 12, 2015, Zoubi released her debut EP, Tumble. Together with musician, Devarrow, she embarked on an EP release tour to Saskatchewan and back. Returning to her home in Victoria, BC, Zoubi is diving into the music scene with her new band. On stage, the ensemble is cohesive and playful. They meld a Tegan and Sara folk-pop sound with jazz saxophone and funk rhythm.
