Karen Zoid has become such an important part of the home grown scene that her name is now the byword for emotionally charged, downright incendiary South African rock music. What’s more, throughout a career spanning more than 10 years, Zoid has managed that unusual and frequently tricky feat of balancing popular appeal with critical praise; of securing an audience of both Afrikaans and English speakers; of retaining her individuality in a market known for its desire for sameness.
Her unmistakable voice, razor sharp lyrics and passionate performances make her a one of a
kind performer. Zoid’s super-charged rock energy and an ability to write gorgeous, delicately rendered songs that speak of the emotional vortex is what drives this exceptional artist to keep creating.
Karen Zoid is South Africa’s premier female rock artist. She currently hosts her own hit talk show “Republiek van Zoid Afrika” on Kyk Net and also appears on “The Voice South Africa “.
Winner of Best Female Artist at the 2008 SAMA’s, Karen has recently made iTunes history with an unprecedented number of consequent #1 hits.
