Monday 24th February – Zuzu at The Green Door Store
Liverpool’s Zuzu carries an exceptional list of creative endeavours under her belt: singer, songwriter, actor, director, producer and illustrator of comic books. With the release of her latest single ‘Skin and Bone’ released earlier this month, Zuzu’s music embodies grungey-pop guitar riffs, a cheeky yet proud Scouse accent and tonnes of sci-fi references. Having signed to Virgin EMI in 2018 and being named one of The Guardian’s artists to watch in the same year, Zuzu should sure be on your radar if she isn’t already.
