Zoe Levitt is a Boston-based singer songwriter. Born and raised in Cambridge Massachusetts, Zoe started playing mandolin and guitar at age six and began writing songs in 2020. She recorded “To Descend,” a song she wrote about pursuing justice as a survivor, with Rachel Sumner for NPR’s 2021 Tiny Desk Contest.
Zoe enjoys writing indie folk and bluegrass songs about everyday life and social justice issues, occasionally with a satirical take. She uses her music to advocate for social change; her recent efforts include recording a video for the Cambridge Women’s Center and playing a benefit to support BARCC. Zoe has studied songwriting with Celia Woodsmith and Mark Erelli, and received a scholarship to study songwriting at the 2021 Ossipee Valley String camp. Zoe works with vocal coach Molly Rocklind. She regularly appears around Boston including at The Bebop, The Burren, Loretta’s Last Call, and Chulo’s. Currently a senior at MIT, Zoe is majoring in Geology and minoring in Music.
