American singer-songwriter Michael Zaib is a Georgia native with a silky smooth voice that embodies the sounds of Otis Redding and Chris Stapleton with the storytelling of John Denver. Louisiana-born and Georgia-raised, Zaib brings soul, country, R&B and folks genres into his originals that invite you on his journey as a singer-songwriter. With two records to his name—his 2017 "31" featuring five songs recorded at Atlanta's Spotlight and New York's Cove City studios, and his 2015 self-titled EP featuring hit singles "The Wind" and "MaMa Said"—Zaib tours regularly across Georgia, the Carolinas, Nashville, Washington, D.C., New York City and Los Angeles. This year he did his first international tour in Australia where he played the National Festival in Canberra. In June 2018 he released his new self-titled album "Michael Zaib" combining his first EPs into one, which is now available on Spotify, Apple Music, Google Play, Amazon Music and more.


They didn’t realize it then, but when Mom and Dad gave me that old Washburn guitar at fourteen, they were handing me the strings to my future.
