Born and raised in a small town in Central Pennsylvania, 25 year old music artist “Zimm” rose to notoriety in 2017 by posting original music to YouTube resulting in several viral videos gaining over 103k subscribers and 10 million total views in only one year.
After seeing success on YouTube, Zimm began to commercially release music in April of 2017. Most notable is his success on Spotify, seeing half a million unique listeners and over 5 million streams in his first year of releasing music.
Zimm was introduced to music at an early age influenced by a variety of different genres such as classic rock, hip hop, and rap. Zimm began playing guitar and writing music at around the age of 9 and started to write hip hop music around the age of 12.
He is most known for his song “Haunted” in which he details his struggles with depression and mental illness, opening up about things he battled with in silence for years. Zimm is open about his struggles with mental health in hopes to spread awareness and one of his main goals as an artist is to shed light on mental illness.
For an artist, it takes courage to turn your career on its head and lay every painful detail of your life on the table to inspire others to make a change. For Zimm, a rapper and songwriter with over 50 million streams under his belt, his own battle with mental health has been a journey.
Throughout his musical career, you can witness his battle with the loneliness of depression and watch his struggle to break through to the other side.
With music as his own personal therapist, helping him through an ongoing war with his innermost and darkest thoughts, Zimm has always enshrined his music with a powerful message. He is now, building on that experience, determined to take that message on the road as a motivational speaker to give strength to those who are experiencing the same pain he has gone through.
