With his expansive pop meditations, multi-instrumentalist and singer Zhao creates music with an unavoidably cinematic quality. It’s the kind of music that invites you to be the star – a momentary soundtrack to your life.
Zhao is not about a single fixed identity. Born to in Tennessee to Chinese immigrants, he grew up in the suburbs of Atlanta before moving to Los Angeles. Taking cues from the likes of James Blake, The XX, Washed Out, and Tame Impala, Zhao can be counted among those for whom music provides deep emotional catharsis.
