Shout Out Saturday: Zoe Boekbinder

Shout Out Saturday: Zoe Boekbinder

Shout Out Saturday is a series meant to highlight real and singular women and non-binary people, in a variety of lines of work, both ‘known’ and unknown, from across the country.

Nomadic at heart and a creator at their core, Zoe Boekbinder (they/them) was born on a farm into a family of four children. While music wasn't very present in their upbringing, Boekbinder recalls some of their first memories as making up songs. For them, music is as natural and as necessary as breath, and the way they engage as an activist. Boekbinder was raised, in part, by their grandfather — a Holocaust survivor. Having survived the horrific, prejudiced violence of his past, he instilled in Boekbinder a deep belief in justice. Songwriting has become their resistance language.
