What is a Zoubi? She is a quirky, quiet creature raised in the woods on Hornby Island, BC. Seeing much success with the 2016 formed band in Victoria BC Zoubi and the Sea performed a multitude of West Coast music festivals and opened for Jon and Roy, Tara Lightfoot, Rising Appalachia, Fortune Killers and Carmanah. In 2017, her unshakable passion for music brought her to Toronto, Ontario where she studied Independent Songwriting and Performance at Seneca College. A naturally magnetic performer, Zoubi plays finger-style guitar and engages with her audience emotionally while blending deep lyrics with simple, catchy melodies. Her live show is complete with charming anecdotes and when accompanied by the band, Zoubi and the Sea melds Feist-like folk-pop tones with a psychedelic feel and bouts of intensity. Off stage and on, Zoubi possesses an endearingly genuine creative spark that catches and holds your attention. In performance, the band showcases vulnerability as a strength and a bold silliness that translates as a punk rock attitude.

During her time living in Toronto, Zoubi formed a band and together they opened for Jesse Roper at the Dakota Tavern, as well as performances at C’est What, Burdock Music Hall, The Revival Bar, The Supermarket, Nookfest and Sneaky Dee's. Zoubi and the Sea continues to grow and rotate members as Zoubi ventures to new and exciting cities to make new connections. Today, she resides in Montreal where she performs as a solo artist, making visits to BC and ON to reunite for performances with previous group members and fans.
