Emily ZuzikLyrical Venus talks with Emily Zuzik, a prolific singer/songwriter, rocker and sought-after collaborator, Emily Zuzik's wide-ranging career has allowed her to shift fluidly from acoustic folk to electronica and alternative rock.

With Americana-fueled guitars and sexy Sheryl Crow-tinged vocals, Zuzik has been a well-known name in the New York City music scene for nearly a decade and is headed west to Los Angeles. She has toured extensively across the US and UK and is a featured vocalist on "The Low Hum," off of Moby's album Destroyed as well as the theme to NBC's summer comedy Love Bites. Zuzik is an Epiphone/Gibson Guitars Endorsed Artist, a commissioned musical artist for Esopus Magazine and a vocalist in Erie Insurance jingles and the Blue Man Group Production Saturday Morning Puppet Club.
