Zoo Legacy: Interview

The first words that comes to your mind when you hear Inspiration, Passion, and Strength

Inspiration – Dreams

Passion – Hours and hours

Strength – Support

Who are you? (Answer how you interpret this question)

We are Zoo Legacy. We exist in a new and growing genre of music that blends the best of hip-hop and indie rock.

Why do you do what you do?

Because music is one of the best things that exists in this world.

When did you know this is what you wanted to do, and what events led you to choose it?

Each of us discovered music individually and realized it was something we wanted to do for the rest of our lives. Then we found each other, similar people who all wanted the same thing.

Toughest thing you had to overcome to do what you do? And what/who helped you?

Staying focused. It’s easy to lose track of your goal and take the easy way out, settling into a lame 9-5 job. Gotta stay focused. We support each other and sometimes one of us has to snap our fingers to tell everyone to refocus.

Has anyone/anything ever inspired you to become who you are (to follow your dreams)? Have you ever inspired anyone directly?

Musicians who are truly in it for the music and fame is just a byproduct of their love for music.


We hope so. As Chad Smith says, just start a f*cken band already.

One mistake that you made in your journey? How have you learnt from them?

Don’t get swayed by big names and flashy ideas. We’ve made some questionable decisions . . .

Upcoming projects? Plans/goal? (about anything, if you have any)

Our third EP, Departures, which we recorded in Brooklyn, NY with producer Gus Van Go is dropping this year. We’re pretty pumped.

What advice would you give to other people? (Just about life in general - It could be about anything)

Don’t let your values change just because you get older.

Say anything you want, about anything (Last words)

What’s the difference between a kidney bean and a chickpea?
