Sophie Edwards is a talented Canberran artist who has had a profound influence on the Pop and Indie Pop music scenes pushing boundaries and making music that is both aesthetically pleasing and artistically gratifying.
Her music fuses the catchy melodies of mainstream Pop with the reflective and genuine elements of Indie Pop creating a unique sound that sets her apart from other artists of her generation. Her songs have a nostalgic quality to them, but they also have a modern, cutting edge. Whether Sophie is writing about themes of love, heartbreak, or self-discovery, her songs are open and sensitive, making it possible for listeners to identify with her.

ZUKO like to re-imagine pop music and provide the soundtrack to a dance party for the jaded.
Genres don't matter. Drunk, anthemic choruses are a must.
Roshan takes care of the vocals and production duties while Jackson provides the sticky guitar hooks and much needed moral support.
Exploring select elements of pop-so-far, ZUKO. are constantly evolving their sound and are just starting to hit their stride
