After being signed to Hopeless Records, Zeph, born Zephani Jong, is a Korean based in LA ready to take the music industry by storm with her brand new single, 'like everyone else.’ Zeph revealed that the single is notable for her. Not only is she the writer and producer of the single, but it also marks the start of her new era.
Zeph also shares, "'like everyone else' is about wanting to be extra special to someone, not necessarily in a romantic way. This is the first "cute" song I've made in a while! The 'scared of everything' EP was about doubts and fears, but this song and upcoming album have many 'i want' themes."
Growing up in Ellicott City, she took piano lessons from three years old until middle school, when she learned how to play songs by ear and make mash-ups. Throughout high school, the self-professed "weird art kid" populated her Instagram with drawings and paintings of her "favorite internet people and artists." Now 23 years later. Zeph has become a leading voice in a generation of new alt-pop artists. Unafraid to "overshare" online, she uses songwriting to transform personal experiences into meaningful music that has captured the heart of fans globally.
Zeph also prides herself on having complete creative control of her music, writing and producing tracks independently as an independent artist with 5 million monthly Spotify listeners. She has grown a significant fanbase across Asia, including Jakarta #1, New Delhi #3, Kuala Lumpur #4, Bangkok #7, and Quezon City #9 in her top 10 streaming cities worldwide.
Backed by MDDN and Hopeless Records, Zeph is setting her recording career to new heights, and the sky's the limit.
