Artist Bio

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 into all manners of styles from around the world.

Zooey Seraphine was classically trained in piano performance and chamber music, but also experimented with jazz and traditional Latin music, as well as other world music. Her influences include her own cultural heritage, music & ethnology professors, and a perpetually curious ear. When she entered the Sarasota music scene nearly a decade ago, she began to experiment with other styles, from folk and Americana to R&B, nuevo flamenco, swing, electronica, and funk in search of her own eclectic voice.

Zooey Seraphine performs as an independent violinist with acts throughout Florida and the Southeast, but her original music project, ZEN Seraphine, was born out of the journey of her own inner healing. Zooey Seraphine also immerses herself in sound healing traditions, as a leading sound healing practitioner, founder of The Sound Alchemy Method of sound therapy.

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