Introducing ZENON (pron. Zen-un): A provocative lyricist with a whole lotta Soul!
ZENON is a bi-racial, non-binary singer/songwriter forging a path with Soul. Their voice at that forefront packs power with masterful control, ZENON is also a writer at heart; penning lyrics that paint a story, from their own struggles with mental health in 7 Deadly Sins to What It Was an ‘in your face’ song about social injustices and its impacts.

What It Was, captures those injustices so well, it wins them 2 awards and ZENON’s debut album GENRE Z got nominated in multiple categories at the 2023 YYC Music Awards and in the R&B/Soul category at Western Canadian Music Awards. This album is an expression of their journey with music and was instrumental in ZENON finding their passion with Soul.

Since 2022 they’ve performed 120+ live shows including 28 festivals such as SLED Island, Canmore Folk Fest Warm Up, Calgary Folk Fest Blockheater, Calgary Pride, Prince George Folk Fest Dak’et Shun Inli. They opened for Alex Cuba at a Road to the Juno’s event and shared the stage with Mattmac in 2023. ZENON kicked off 2024 headlining with the talents of Amy Bishop in Alberta and Theo Tams in BC.

Armed with a music degree, large repertoire and live show charisma ZENON’s trajectory is upward. Whether on stages solo or in a duo as ZENON+, their performances pull you in. Visit www.zenonepp.com for more.
