At only 19 years old, German singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Zoe Wees has already accomplished more than most. She made her start on the fifth season of The Voice Kids in 2017, and her debut song “Control” — which spoke to her battle with benign rolandic epilepsy and made her a Hits 1 to Watch artist — charted in multiple countries, including No. 1 in France. Zoe’s debut EP Golden Wings was released in May via Capitol Records, containing her second single “Girls Like Us.” She has 1.8 million followers on TikTok to date, with her songs appearing in hundreds of thousands of videos on the platform.
We caught up with Zoe for a new episode of Vision Boarding, a conversational series where rising artists look back at where they’ve been and map out where they hope to go in the future, based on the TikTok-approved concepts of mood boards and manifesting. Read some highlights of the conversation below and hear the rest (including her dream festival to play at, collaboration goals, and more) here.
