SHORT BIO 

Zarah, also known as Zarah Maillard (pronounced as ZAY-rah), is a critically acclaimed LA-based singer, songwriter, writer, television personality, and producer who performed with Goo Goo Dolls and dominated the media edutainment scene for youth by hosting the nationally syndicated music-driven-weekly television series "B InTune TV". Zarah is also a celebrated author and her first published murder mystery novel "Diamonds are For Cocktails" was featured on Times Square billboard in New York and endorsed by Fox News. Her unique blend of raspy yet powerful vocals, insightful lyrics, and catchy melodies, combined with her unapologetic approach to her rock roots, make for a raw art form of relatable escapism and energetic performances, leading to the debut of her first-ever modern rock studio album "Blind Woman".

"There is a feeling of euphoria when I perform my songs live where a sense of belongingness simply cannot be substituted; it is where I feel the most, free."

–   Zarah, Recording artist & Author

                                            A & R Factory

                                            Illustrate Magazine

"Zarah, has proven she’s far from a one melodic masterpiece wonder with her sophomore single, Blind Woman... the yearning atmosphere that drifts between the enticing tension in the instrumentation and her dynamic vocal range, which can deliver everything from the raw timbre of Lydia Lunch to a rock-licked iteration of Kate Bush’s high register, is a lesson in sonic alchemy. She’s a siren of pure power and soul."
                                            A & R Factory 

"Zarah really has done it all. From being on stage with bands like the Goo Goo Dolls to building her own show, to writing books, to teach our youth skills that will help them in every area of life. She is fun. Smart. Giving. And has talent that she hasn't even tapped into yet."
                                             iHeart Radio

"Employing a fusion of rock and pop was genius of Zarah for such a serious topic because not only will this song get stuck in your head, but it will also fire you up with the emotive flair that is prevalent in every line of Zarah’s punchy lyrics...

                                            Fame Magazine 

"'What Have We Become?’ is explosive... She’s got it all as an artist, an amazing voice, the songwriting chops and all the energy you could ask for. In a world where rock music is being drowned out by auto-tune and other digital elements, it’s great to hear that rock n’ roll is alive and well with Zarah... The blast of sound that this track brings feels timeless to me. It could fit into any decade or generation of music."
