Maryland-based singer, pop auteur and producer Zeph (Zephani Jong, 22) releases her debut EP Scared of Everything HERE on Neon Gold Records (MARINA, Charli XCX, HAIM, Christine and the Queens, et. al). Last month, she released her self-produced single about platonic mixed signals, “friends or not” HERE, and earlier she debuted “are you?” alongside her first music video, filmed in Los Angeles and directed by Erik Rojas (Isaac Dunbar, Rich Brian, Jessie J etc).

About the Scared Of Everything EP she says: "everything makes me nervous. i also realized that every song on this ep is about me being insecure or paranoid so i thought the title was fitting"

If Zeph’s life were a coming-of-age flick, she wouldn’t just be the star; she’d also be the writer, composer, and director. Not only enlivening every lyric, but also cooking up each beat herself, the Maryland-born singer, songwriter, and producer cobbles together dreamy alternative pop underscored by soundtrack-worthy cinematic flourishes and the kinds of confessions that inspire empathy in the comments section. 

Inspired in equal parts by film composers like Hans Zimmer as she is her pop contemporaries, Zeph has continued to hone in on her own cinematic alternative-pop songs, which sound like they were pulled right from her diary and onto the silver screen. Channeling this medium to share her own insecurities and emotions, Zeph often creates soundtrack clips set to anime and comic shorts posted to her Instagramfeed. She likes to describe her music as a soundtrack to a coming-of-age movie where everyone is the main character, especially those who feel like they are not.
