About Us

Established first as a Bay Area-based fanzine, then a record label, ZUM has been a continual resource for music fans throughout the past few decades. Focusing on our record label since 1998, we've got over 30 releases from artists around the world.
Started by siblings George Chen (Los Angeles) and Yvonne Chen (Portland).
