Toronto-based R&B/pop artist Erez Zobary has a timeless voice, in more ways than one. Raised on Stevie Wonder and Amy Winehouse, Erez’s sultry vocals and catchy pop melodies echo the sounds and styles of her youth. Lyrically she is raw and uninhibited, writing openly about universal, yet highly personal, feelings of self-worth, uncertainty, and vulnerability. Combined with a down-to-earth sense of humor and natural charisma, which she displays online and onstage, Erez engages with a growing fanbase who resonate deeply with her message of empowerment, and find joy and connectivity in the community she has fostered. On her upcoming album, Erez Zobary is joined by some of Toronto's most talented up-and-coming musicians (Jon Catanus, Caleb Klager, Patrick Smith, Adam Eisen, David Lipson), bringing to life a deeply soulful body of work, infused with elements of R&B, hip-hop, and jazz.
