Zoe Sparks sings “all my friends are famous and it’s like I never existed” in her newest single “Famous” available for streaming on Apple Music and Spotify.
It’s mid-January of the New Year and “Famous” has entered our lives at the right time. Any goals can seem impossible when everyone around you may be hitting theirs at a different rate. Funnily enough, it’s hard to care about what you haven’t accomplished when listening to “Famous”. Sparks’ upbeat voice, the horns, the overall 2000s pop Mean-Girls-burn-book visuals of the collage cover (created by Ulysses Media) make this feel like the kind of song you sing when you’re secretly happy to be going on your own path. You know, like a song two confused, creative 20-something-year old’s would belt out in a movie scene, embracing the chaos.
This is a Boston-based publication, and despite Sparks’ relatable frustration of being a musician in the era of seemingly overnight internet-fame, the Boston-based singer-songwriter with 18k Instagram followers certainly has done the complete opposite of “never existing”. Her singing-to-her-iPhone-sitting-in-her-room-recordings fill Sparks’ social media and through simply Being Herself Sparks has amassed a tight-knit following.
“I’ve heard this song before!” says my sister, who saw Sparks perform at Red Head Night at Warehouse XI last April, when I told her about this write-up. Zoe Sparks is a household-name when it comes to Boston Performers and The People Who Love Them. Maybe Sparks is amusing us with her lyrics, because she’s certainly made an impact on this city, and more as she’s going on tour along the East Coast starting January 14th, click the button above for her tour dates! Catch Sparks in Boston on January 18th at the Nash Bar & Stage or on February 3rd at The Red Room at Café 939.
Zoe Sparks does it again since “All the Things You’re Not”, maybe this time reflecting on all the things she feels she’s not. We know what Sparks is though and that’s a bass playing, trumpet track loving, master of upbeat songs. No matter how many “record deals and fancy wheels” Sparks will encounter along the way, it’s her authentic lyrics and genuine voice that truly make her a star.
