Life full of music
ZoSiawas born Zosia Zalewska in Poland. Although she never had formal musical training, she clearly showed an aptitude at a young age and began singing, playing piano and learning percussion. During her early years she became immersed in classical compositions that would later serve her well. In high school, with the absence of any formal lessons being available to her, she began to develop her skills composing music and lyrics as a young teenager on her own. She formed a band and began to perform primarily bossa nova and jazz for live audiences.
When ZoSia was sixteen her interest in the piano re-surfaced and she was now concentrating on more pop and rock music. At nineteen she joined a new band where she met her future husband, drummer, Tomek Karbowiak. As well as performing, they began collaborating on new songs and material. After their marriage, three children, a move to Denmark that would last 5 years, playing countless shows, they returned to Poland but continued to commute to Denmark on a regular basis to perform.
ZoSia's talent during this time expanded internationally when her music was discovered by Jason Scheff, lead tenor and bass player for the Rock Band Chicago. During their tour of Europe in 2008, Scheff along with Robert Lamm founding member of Chicago, met with ZoSia and Tomek and agreed to be the Executive Producers of her Solo CD S.I.N.G.
She has appeared on TV in Poland and Denmark including a performance at the Polish National Song Festival in 2009; national eliminators for Eurovision 2010 and Eurovision 2011. In 2010-2011 collaborated with Robert Lamm on his Solo CD "Living Proof" where she co-wrote and sang three songs: "Liquid Sky", "Those Crazy Things" and "Arise". All three of these songs rose to the top of the Chart on Polish State Radio. On June 6th 2012 she was asked to perform a concert at Radio Koszalin where she would perform "Arise" (along with covers of such songs as "Rollin In The Deep" and "Rehab)
as part of her show. George Grunwald was a special guest performer
She has been on the cover and interviewed by "Trendy Magazine" In January 2015, and along with husband Tomek Karbowiak they took on a Project called 105 Drum Corps at the Culture Center in Koszalin to teach students the basics of marching band drumming. These teens were featured in "Prestiz Magazine" in June 2014. Later in 2015 she celebrated her 20 years of music at a Jubilee in Poland where she and husband Tomek were featured artists.
