Zee Avi was discovered on YouTube.com by Raconteurs drummer, Patrick Keeler, who brought music to the attention of his manager Ian Montone (The Shins, The White Stripes, Autolux) and he was blown away.
Zee is based in Malaysia and was immediately flown out to begin recording. Her debut album will be in stores on May 19th.
