As a versatile violinst, Zooey Seraphine has performed and recorded with various artists throughout Southeast Florida, on her path towards pushing the boundaries of the violin from raw & gritty fiddling styles to more polished swing traditions to an experimental blend of unconventional effects & progressive techniques. 

Zooey Seraphine has been influenced by a wide variety of music. She was classically trained in piano performance and chamber music, but also experimented with jazz and traditional Latin music, as well as other world music, influenced by family traditions, professors, and a consistently curious ear. She dabbled with other styles, from folk to R&B to nuevo flamneco to electronica and funk in search of her own voice, before she endeavored to push the violin forward into genres, previously unconventional to it as a lead instrument. 

Zooey Seraphine still performs as an independent violinist with acts throughout Florida and the Southeast, but her original music project, the ZEN Seraphine Collective, was born out of the journey of her own inner healing. Zooey Seraphine also immerses herself in sound healing traditions, and has collaborated with yoga studios to provide ambient, healing music for yoga flows and other events.

Since 2018, Zooey Seraphine also performs with Pedro Arevalo (of the Dickey Betts Band) in their duo Pedro y Zooey. Follow her YouTube Channel, ZEN Seraphine, to see more of her musical explorations.
