Zandi Holup
At 13 Zandi started playing guitar, piano and singing. During a vocal lesson her teacher asked her on a whim, “Do you write songs?” That is when the muse revealed itself and she started putting lyric and melody together. Soon after this Zandi heard a song by Miranda Lambert called “More Like Her.” She knew she loved music, but there was something about country music that spoke to her heart. She started listening to a lot of country records and dissecting them. She would find ways to incorporate country sounds and story ideas into her songwriting without losing a rock edge. A natural poet, Zandi had no problem learning to express herself in words. After the first few songs she wrote she knew she had the music as well.
Her first film role “A Birder’s Guide to Everything” was directed by Rob Meyer and starred Ben Kingsley. It premiered at the 2014 Tribeca Film Festival in New York. Zandi has also worked on many other amazing projects including her film “Friends & Romans” which was the grand opener of the Boston International Film Festival and the FX show “Louie” starring Louis CK. Zandi wrapped a project with Naomi Watts in December and is proud to announce that her first EP titled Zandi Holup Lone Star came out February 29th.
