Meet Zilo, the 24-year-old singer from London whose love of painting, poetry, and writing has evolved into music. A burgeoning artist inspired by instrumentals from the producer/vocalist Dream Koala, she has taken music with both hands, applying her creativity into this new vein. And the result? A soulful, blissful masterpiece you need to hear.
“Don’t Waste My Time” is only her third release following “Know That I Want You” and “Keep Up Wimmi“, but there is a clear sense of belief in her artistry and a signature sound which matches her warm, rich vocals. Production that fuses classic hip-hop with R&B/Soul thanks to Marco Bernardis and Lophiile, “Don’t Waste My Time” serves as a important reminder to always value your own time, even if others are not.
Being personal and retrospective on life and experiences is integral to her art. Zilo also paints the vivid, memorable artwork for her music, resulting in an artistic output that represents her vision, unfiltered and unobstructed – “I feel that it is super important to learn to be comfortable in your own company and it’s something I do find myself talking about in my songs a lot.”
