Zee Avi is just 23 but she’s an old soul. A huge talent in a petite frame bringing a universal message from the unlikely birthplace of Borneo, an ancient island east of Malaysia which remains an untouched, natural paradise, an apt description of her songs. Zee began recording her songs on a webcam and posting them on YouTube for a friend to hear. The day before her 22nd birthday, Zee posted what she intended to be “my last video,” a holiday song, “No Christmas for Me.” By the time she checked her e-mail Avi had almost 3,000 messages including a slew of label offers. She ended up signing with Jack Johnson’s Brushfire Records. (Her music has a Jack Johnson-esque quality to it.) Look for her first album to drop May 19, 2009. Pickup her album on or Amazon.com
A new song from the album, “Monte” was featured in last night’s season Finale of “Private Practice”. She will also be touring the US for her album release.
