“Five Minutes With” Vancouver Indie Artist Zoey Leven

Zoey Leven is a 21-year-old Indie artist from Vancouver, BC. From the age of 3, Zoey has grown up surrounded by a musical family, learning piano from her Aunt and Musical theatre from her cousin, all while engaging in local talent competitions showcasing her original songs and developing her striking stage presence. She also went to music school where she learned production and music business.

With 1 energetic new single out and another on the way, Zoey continues to work on writing and recording new songs filled with teenage nostalgia and the awkward stages of entering adulthood. She is currently playing various band and acoustic shows throughout Vancouver and has exciting plans to develop an album for release in 2023.

With the hope of creating a voice for the LGBTQ community and others trying to find their place, Zoey aims to be a successful recording artist, defying stereotypes and expectations with her androgynous look and passionate voice.
