Meet ZALI, the award-winning Dublin based Irish Singer-songwriter that is currently hypnotising the Ireland with her powerful vocals and her distinct cross-genre sound of Pop-Soul. Music has been her passion since childhood, and her involvement as a lead vocalist in the church choir helped ZALI develop her powerful voice, dynamic vocal range, and signature sound of old- school R&B mixed with Pop-Soul. Now ZALI has her sights on the UK: New single ‘That Girl’ is out now across all streaming platforms.
Inspired by artists like Amy Winehouse, Toni Braxton, and Frank Ocean, ZALI uses her music to capture true emotions.

About the new single, ZALI says: I wrote ‘That Girl’ as a relatable, audacious self-affirmative Soul-Pop anthem. I wanted to create a soothing daydream vibe, that gives you a feeling of good karma coming your way that you don’t want to wake up from.It’s a reminder to girls everywhere to be unapologetic in their confidence because each and everyone one of us are ‘That Girl’ in our own rights, even when we don’t see it, there’s people out there being inspired by us every day.
