Malaysian Singer/Songwriter Zee Avi Announces Sophomore Album
In addition to being an accomplished singer/songwriter, Zee Avi is also a multi-talented musiscian, playing both the guitar and ukulele. The one time fashion design student was discovered by Patrick Keeler of The Raconteurs who passed a YouTube link on to his band's manager, who passed her music on to Emmett Malloy who ultimately signed her to Brushfire Records. Since being signed, Avi has toured with Pete Yorn and had a song featured in the season 2 finale of U.S. TV show Private Practice.
