After returning from college in the USA where she studied Art and theater, Zoe got involved in the musical theater of Karachi, spearheaded by Nida Butt and Hamza Jafri, in which she played lead roles in musicals like Chicago and Mama Mia. She simultaneously kicked off her professional musical journey with her debut single, “Thinking about You”.
Zoe finally released her own album, ‘Dareeche’, through Universal Music India, in 2014, for which she won the Lux Style Award for best album and Indian Recording Arts Awards for the best-mixed album.
