program at Tulsa School of Arts & Sciences and soon ZUNIS was born in the
backyard of a friend’s house. Their debut was successful and inspiring. The band
recorded and released their eponymous EP in 2016 and led a thriving DIY scene in
Tulsa staging all-ages shows in backyards, backrooms, empty warehouses, and squats.
ZUNIS introduced their second self-released EP, “Earth to Self” headlining a 4-band
bill to an all-ages audience at Tulsa’s Gateway Building. They were selected as an
official showcase band by SXSW and performed on the main stage at The Boom
Factory during SXSW 2019 in Austin, Texas.
ZUNIS performed locally and toured regionally in the summer prior to embarking on a
twenty city autumn tour through the mid-west and south. Highlights included an
industry showcase hosted by Norm Winer at Fort Knox Studios in Chicago, a visit to
JBTV with Jerry Bryant, and a performance set and interview on the SAFEHOUSE ATX
program in Austin.
The band is currently writing and recording and planning their 2020 tour.
