Zia Hassan is a storyteller. He likes to ask questions and seek honest answers from (and about) a vast array of subjects, such as love, neuroscience, solar particles, consciousness, dark matter, and surrogate motherhood.
This passion of his is the catalyst for his music, as well as multiple other creative projects including a podcast series, short films, photography, insightful blog posts, and more.
He’s a guy who keeps a pen and paper on him at all times just to make sure a new idea doesn’t get away. It’s his observation skills coupled with a genuine sense of childlike wonder that brings Zia’s music and other creative endeavors to life.
