Before 15-year-old Mark Zhu debuted with his single, "Weather", an interlude from his upcoming EP, he was a brilliant pianist and visual artist who brought his performances and works to life. At 12 years old, he performed at the 2018 American Protege International Piano and Strings winners’ recital at Carnegie Hall. In 2019, he won first prize for Golden Classical Music Awards International Music Competition and performed at Carnegie Hall again. During these difficult times, Mark has adopted songwriting and music production as an outlet. The lyrics of his songs were mostly written past midnight in his bedroom, the time and place where his mind harvests haunting—yet innovative ideas.
