I ignored Zoolon Audio for the longest time. It was perhaps a couple of years before I looked to see who was following my posts so intensely: liking every single thing I wrote and often within seconds of me posting.
When I clicked on his link I found out that he is a real person! I’d always thought the name hid some kind of insidious marketing operation based in Korea, or something like that, but no. Actually, the man behind the mask is George Blamey-Steeden, from Devon. Here’s what he posted on his Amazon account:
Zoolon, the alter ego of George Blamey-Steeden – that’s me – a musician, songwriter and sound artist. I have a number of albums to my name, ‘Liquid Truth’ (2012), a concept album themed around Plato’s ‘Allegory of The Cave’; ‘Cosa Nostra’ (2014) a sound art creation based on the story of Romeo & Juliet; plus my two latest albums displaying my songwriting skills, presently for sale at Bandcamp, namelt ‘Dream Rescuer’ (2017) and ‘Rainbows End’ (2017).I compose, perform, produce, record and mix my compositions ‘in house’. I work best alone. For what it’s worth, I have a First-Class BA (Hons) in Creative Music Technology.
When I’m not attempting to create, my passion for music is only matched by a love of animals and my support for The Arsenal football club.

If you’re reading this, George, you need to update your Biography. I’ve just bought your excellent Devil’s Kiss but I can’t see any mention of this 2019 release of yours on your Bio.
In fact, I’m listening to these beautifully mellow tracks, freshly downloaded from Bandcamp . right now. They make marvellous mood music and are just right for me to type along to. And there’s lots more on this site for y’all to get your teeth into if you like to be chilled and entertained. I might have to ask George for some tips on how to create songs as professional as these, because mine are just pants in comparison.
George’s blog is just excellent. There are so many good things there to see; here’s a short selection:
- Have your poetry turned into a song by George himself!
- Buy music that George has lovingly created and performed for you!
- Get your hands on mugs, bags, pillows, clothing and more, all designed by George!
- Purchase a paperback (The Words & Thoughts of a Dyslexic Musician) written by … yes, you guessed it – George!
And if that wasn’t enough, he also blogs. His latest post is about one of his inspirations: the ‘mad genius’ Francesca Woodman. Intrigued? Then why not click and read? I found both her and the article to be fascinating and it’s great to get an insight into a real artist’s creative process.
So, thanks for following me for all these years, George. I’m glad I finally clicked on your link and explored your own genius. You have such a marvellous collection of initiatives out there in the world. I’m just sorry that it took me so long to discover them.
