Zia Hassan - Lever
Zia Hassan is a storytelling singer-songwriter who tries to capture earthly moments from a cosmic vantage point. He writes songs about reality, surrogate motherhood, space, time travel, and solar particles. He's also been referred to as "DC's #1 Love Song writer," and he has often been hired to write love songs for anniversaries, weddings, and birthdays. He sings with soulful passion and a soaring falsetto. His on-stage stories open small universes, beckoning new listeners to enter his strange and loveable world.
Zia released his first solo album, Grow Slow, in 2009. The album was received extremely well, especially on the internet -- every single song from the record was up-voted to the front page of TheSixtyOne.com, a popular music ranking service. Songs like "A Love Like That" received the most praise, spawning a fan-made video on YouTube. "Carry My Love," a song about a surrogate mother carrying a baby for her sister, a cancer survivor, touches the heart of anyone who hears it. To promote the album, Zia performed through an online broadcast so that international fans could hear his live act.
