Too Many Zooz on their musical rise to fame, their tips for buskers and their latest single with KDA ‘Warriors’
L-R Matt ‘Doe’ Muirhead, David (King of Sludge) Parks and Leo Pellegrino
Too Many Zooz are the subway sensation known for collaborating on Beyonce’s Lemonade as well as a searing series of live busking viral videos.
Their latest single with KDA Warriors has been featured on Google’s Pixel Two advert and they are currently touring nine months out the year.
We spoke to them about how they grew from busking on the streets to playing to thousands, how they like touring in the UK and whether or not music school was beneficial for them.
No. We would but were on the road 9 months out of the year. Makes it difficult.
Your video went viral in 2014, how important is social media as an avenue for success for busking artists? Any tips on how to achieve viral success?
If you go out to perform and you’re goal is to ‘go viral’ I can almost guarantee you won’t. Have fun. Get your friends involved. Start a culture!
Manchester is host to many music universities and colleges, from RNCM to the British Institute of Modern Music- do you personally feel that Music Schools are beneficial? Can musicians succeed without them?
They can be beneficial. Depends how you use them. And of course musicians can be successful without them.
You’ve just collaborated with UK number 1 artist KDA for “Warriors”. How did this come about? What was KDA able to bring to your music?
Man… excited about that record. KDA is such an artist. We collaborated kinda through Sony UK and kinda through his general interest. To be honest I’m not really sure how the whole thing unfolded but I’m happy it did!
Finally, what’s next for ‘Too Many Zooz’?
More shows. More records. More merch.
