Zoe Lemos

The New School

Contemporary Music



Raised in Western Massachusetts, Zoe (she/her) discovered the power of music at a very young age. She’s been using her music as a vehicle for advocacy and social change ever since. When she was eleven years old, Zoe started writing original songs, playing in bands, and busking to raise money for justice. Since then, she’s performed at many events, including the March for Our Lives, the Women’s March Northampton, and a fundraiser for the LGBT Asylum Task Force, which she organized. Zoe volunteered at Standing Rock during three critical weeks in November of 2016 when protests against the Dakota Access pipeline were at their peak. She also interned at the International Indigenous Youth Council, helping with their March for Unity in DC in 2017, and marched 50 miles for gun control in 2018. Zoe graduated from Pioneer Valley Performing Arts School in 2021 and identifies as a biracial queer woman. She will be attending The New School in New York City this fall and plans to study contemporary music with a focus on protest music and social change.
