Del Currie, aka Zoo Seven, was born and raised in Northern Ireland with his parents Joseph and Mary (I know what you’re thinking, it’s not true), a brother and 4 sisters. Music was always part of family life and these musical roots are what gave Currie his love for melody and harmony from a young age. Bands like The Alarm and Cactus World News were early influences that have stayed with him to this day.
Though Lifesaver is the debut release for Zoo Seven, Currie spent many years recording and playing with his band Fono. Touring with artists like The Goo Goo Dolls, Tonic and Third Eye Blind to name but a few, and working with top recording professionals like Chris Sheldon (Foo Fighters, Radiohead). In 2005 he won Best Rock Song in the International Song Writing Contest with his partner in crime Andy Ridley.[youtube sEbynWEVQYE nolink]
