Just recently, she co-wrote, One Friend for American blues artiste Keb’Mo’ which appeared in his Grammy Award-winning album Keep It Simple, which won Best Contemporary Blues Album at the 47th Grammy Awards.
I have had the pleasure of meeting Zuriani during her visits to London. Oooh, if only I can write songs like her. She zooms here and there, Norway, London, Malaysia, LA and God knows where else and churns out songs for singers such as Siti Nurhaliza, Ziana Zain, Ella, Sugar Babes and now Gina G. Gina G is of course Australian pop sensation who represented Britian in the 1996 contest with 'Ooh Aah, Just a Little Bit”.
Zuriani is currently with Big Life Music in London, and is married to American Arthur Zonneveld and is blessed with daughter Jasmine.
