Biography
At first glance it would seem that Zakiya Hooker was born into the blues. After all, her father is the late great Blues Legend John Lee Hooker. Zakiya has pursued life and music on her own terms.

In 1991 Zakiya made her first public appearance with her father, John Lee Hooker at the Kaiser Center Theatre in Oakland, California. Since that time Zakiya has gone on to perform on shows with Etta James, John Hammond, Taj Mahal, Charlie Musselwhite and many more. By 1993 Zakiya released her first CD "Another Generation Of The Blues" on Silvertone Records. In 1997 she released her second CD "Flavors Of The Blues" worldwide on Pointblank/Virgin Records. Flavors Of The Blues, opens with a cover of the Robert Johnson classic “Stones In My Passway”, illustrating Zakiya’s supple blues and smooth, jazz-inflected style. The rest of the songs range from tempestuous (“Art of Divorce” and “Let’s Do Something”) to delicate and moody (“Protect Me From The Blues”, “New Orleans Rain”, and the torch gem “Drowning In Your Love”). Joining his daughter and Charlie Musselwhite in the studio, John Lee Hooker lends his inimitable presence on the track “Bit By Love (Hard Times)”. Flavors Of The Blues documents the resilience of the human spirit. In her own unique voice, Zakiya shares the strength gained from a lifetime of experience. 2001 brought a Indie live release recorded live in Buenos Aires, Argentina, "Colors Of The Blues". She is now finishing up her fourth CD “Keeping It Real” to be released this spring!

Zakiya has been the recipient of numerous awards in her career. She has received awards from numerous Blues Societies in and out of California for her innovative style of music. Zakiya recently crossed over into the jazz genre when she was awarded the Annual KCSM’s “Jazzy” Award for Best Stage Performance”.

Zakiya has spoken on Blues panels and given spoken word performances about this unique American Art form, all in addition to her performing and recording career. She was selected to give a spoken word performance at film director Martin Scorsese's Radio City Music Hall Blues Concert on February 7, 2003 in New York City, a concert that was filmed by director Antoine Fuqua. Zakiya was also a panelist, as well as a spoken word performer at San Francisco's KQED-TV launch program for Scorsese's fall 2003 PBS-TV series "The Blues" at San Francisco's Herbst Theatre on September 16, 2003.

Zakiya's music has carried her all over the world and given her the opportunity to perform for fans the world over. She performs nationally and internationally. Zakiya has performed at the world famous Fillmore Auditorium, the San Francisco Blues Festival, the Monterey Jazz & Blues Festival and many more. She has been on the cover of several well known trade magazines including Billboard Magazine. Zakiya's voice can also be heard on advertisements for LEXUS and AIWA, and also on the soundtrack of the movie Chalk, which has won the Camera d'Or at Cannes and Grand Prize at the Sundance Film Festival in San Francisco.

Zakiya Hooker is John Lee Hooker's living legacy. She is the singer-songwriter daughter of this American Icon and she is carrying her father's seminal blues torch confidently into the future. Zakiya's jazzy blues sounds will take you in and out of songs like "Hey Lady", "Baby You Busted", "New Orleans Rain", "Protect Me From The Blues", "Crossroads", "Stones In My Passway" and many more to entertain you.

Zakiya is a versatile vocalist and a fantastic performer. She puts on a witty, funny, emotional and most of all entertaining show with her band. Let Zakiya entertain you with the best in blues and jazz.
