  Biography  

 music career
 Influences and style

Zarah’s influence in music came from listening to classic to modern rock genre and at times, popular music that began at an early stage.
This enabled her to explore and develop her songwriting ability and worked on her vocals with legendary vocal coach Seth Riggs. Zarah honed her craft by writing and working with diverse musicians recording and performing live on different scenes.

Since then, her collaboration list of known artists grew namely, bassist Ricky Phillips of Bad English , lead guitarist Howard Leese from the Heart, the Goo Goo Dolls and many iconic figures on music-related projects such as the son of the famous Beatles member , Zak Starkey , the late Patrick Swayze, record producer David Foster and rock bands that influenced her growing up like U2 and Collective soul, where she met lead guitarist Ross Childress.

These involvements carried memorable experiences for Zarah, which reflected heavily in her music and lyrics writing style that is mainly positive, inspiring her to create songs that have 'meaning and purpose' as a songwriter.

 Performances

 Goo Goo Dolls

Zarah’s notable performances include concert shows with the Goo Goo Dolls. Her first performance with the famous rock band took place at the 9:30 Club concert venue in Washington, D.C. known for its gold standard for rock clubs in the country. Consequently, Zarah met with members of the United States Congress, which included former United States Senator John Breaux at Capitol Hill with John Rzeznik pertaining to music piracy issues in the music industry. Bringing success to her previous concert, Zarah followed-up on other performances with the Goo Goo Dolls in other locations like Los Angeles. She also worked with the band on similar projects toward youth like inviting them to appear as her guest stars in B InTune TV. In 2006, the recurring episodes featuring the Goo Goo Dolls gave Zarah the opportunity to share with her teen audiences what goes on behind the scenes on learning how to launch a major rock concert, conducting many interviews with the band and their crew during rehearsal for their upcoming tour.

 Fundraising events and projects

In support to further advance Music and Arts Education causes, programs and projects for youth, Zarah worked with several Congressional leaders leading to former United States Senator like Tom Daschle, United States Senator Harry Reid and United States Congressman Steny Hoyer. She offered her support by delivering live performances with her band for Fundraising events, which took place across the country. On her press interviews, she frequently expressed how "being able to help educate and entertain teens both at the same time, is very powerful".

In June 15, 2001, Zarah worked with frontman Bono in association with the GRAMMY Foundation on a special project for children’s music where she got invited to a U2's soundcheck and spent time with Bono and bassist Adam Clayton, when they performed at the Verizon Center

 Album soft-launch

By early 2008, Zarah was at the highest peak of her global audience in B InTune TV show running in two separate network line-ups with 120 million homes in the United States on one and another for its rerun syndication and TV specials, totaling of 200 million households and 54 international countries around the world.

Brewing to make music, Zarah decided to take the time off and get back to her roots as a musician. Within the same year, she wrote an entire album conveying meaningful and relevant subjects in her work, evolving into a seasoned artist. In late 2008, Zarah recorded with musician Robin DiMaggio, keyboardist Alex Alessandroni and bassist Chris Chaney among others, on self-written tracks she co-produced at the Henson Recording Studios (formerly A & M Studios) in Hollywood, California. The record was engineered by Julian Chan and mixed by Grammy Award-winning mix engineer Mark Needham. She soft-launched her rock recordings in 2009, by performing live with guitarist Devin Bronson and invited a few aspiring artists from a local high school to join her, where Adam Gaynor of Matchbox 20 guest-starred and introduced her at the show. Fender, Where Music Meets Film at the Sundance Film Festival, Bel-Air Entertainment Group and B InTune Media, sponsored the jam-packed showcase event.

Zarah finds her purpose through a positive impact in music as she once told Charley Daniels from a Television Week interview saying, "I think music has healed a lot of my past".

In 2011, Zarah began working on finishing her debut album with GRAMMY Award-winning duo producers Jean-Claude Olivier , who took a notice after soft-launching her album and his partner Samuel Barnes of Track Masters who sometimes are credited as ‘Poke and Tone’ in the music industry.
