07 APRIL 2021 (TORONTO, ON) - Today German wunderkind Zoe Wees announces her debut EP, Golden Wings, out on May 21st, 2021. The EP consists of five songs, each delicately penned from a personal, relatable place which will leave listeners with a warm, fuzzy feeling inside.

Zoe’s upcoming EP will be available via Capitol Records/Universal Music Canada, the country's leading music company.
Speaking about the Golden Wings EP, Zoe said “Each of the songs are autobiographical and very special to me. In a way‚ the EP was written as personal therapy, with each track helping tackle my own mental health. I chose the title “Golden Wings” to symbolize the feeling of ‘security and strength.’ These two things are foundations from where hope can grow. I hope people can relate to my stories in their own way.”
