Biography

Phildel's mother married a strictly religious Muslim when Phildel was nine Her name, religion, lifestyle, and dress-code were forcibly changed, and all of her personal possessions were taken from her Music became a forbidden evil within the household, meaning no radio, no CD player, and no piano She was renamed Zara For the next decade Phildel was treated as a servant within her home However, Phildel spent lunchtimes with sympathetic music teachers and the school piano, at the girls' day school in Barnet Queen Elizabeth's School for Girls The school became a refuge in which she could write and play her own compositions She eventually ran away from home at age 17 to escape her home-life and follow her dreams

She soon purchased a second-hand computer and some music demo software packages and began putting together her first home-demo Within a short while, it attracted the attention of Roger Watson a former Chrysalis Music MD, and his support of her music led to collaborations with Spike MaClaren at Massive Attack's studio and Sam Dixon known for his collaborations with many artists including KT Tunstall and Duffy's 'Rockferry' album

In 2007, she wrote the piano piece "The Kiss" which was used for a worldwide TV advertising campaign for Apple iPad 3 It was also used for Marks & Spencer's advert Her music has also been used on Persil and Omo washing powder Another of her tracks "Piano B" was used for an Expedia commercial followed by two more high-profile filmic campaigns in France in 2008/2009 In 2008, another track, "Everyone's Memory Is Snow" renamed "A Better World", was used for the commercial for an insurance company, which Zizou praised

She said "Four of my tracks have been used in commercials around the world, two of them in the UK They all came about in different ways, through different individuals, agencies or publishers But my publisher Warner/Chappell Music have been very proactive in the realm of pitching my music for advertising I re-invest whatever income I make into top-of-the-range studio equipment and cameras for documenting everything and creating visuals So, it all goes back into my music" She was complimented on her "sonic soundscapes" by Trevor Horn Her music has been cited as an inspiration by Mariah Huehner, author of the True Blood and Angel comic books They have also been used in theatre productions and by celebrity fashion designer Henrietta Ludgate's live shows She soon returned the favour by wearing Henrietta's dress at a performance at St Pancras Old Church
