As both a solo artist and lead singer of Chicago’s favorite new alt-rock band ZORILA, Stew’s versatile talents do not go unnoticed. When he’s not making music, Arp takes to TikTok, showing off his alluring personality and undeniable charisma while winning the hearts of fans from all over the world. When he’s not busy charming fans with his humor and piercing blue eyes, Arp hangs with his pet geckos Slick, Scuz and Spoons. Originally from southern Illinois, Stew and the rest of the members in ZORILA very recently packed their bags and moved to Chicago to pursue their music careers full-time. Having received high praises from Tattoo Magazine, Broadway World and We Found New Music, ZORILA has experienced undeniable momentum and Stew’s solo efforts continue to stand-out.
