Sincere, soulful and unexpected; EZI is a force to be reckoned with.

Esther Zynn began writing songs and performing in school musicals at age 11. Growing up feeling very misunderstood and disengaged from school, Zynn used music and acting as a means to escape and find herself. That soon manifested into a professional career for EZI as both an actress and songwriter.

Before landing the starring role on Nickelodeon's The Other Kingdom, Zynn appeared in numerous ad campaigns and films that premiered in festivals around the world.

EZI also happens to be the debut artist of Steve Madden's new record label, 5Towns Records, an independent label based in NYC. Back in March, Steve Madden Music played host to EZI's first concert when she opened for Marian Hill at Brooklyn's Music Hall of Williamsburg.

"Redemption" is EZI's soulful and catchy head-bopping debut track, which showcases her talent of storytelling through her own experiences of love and heartbreak, while also serving as a reminder to herself and her listeners that everyone should embrace their vulnerabilities. The song sets the tone for her forthcoming debut EP, which is set to drop later this year.
