Zoë Eve Nutt, child of Knoxville TN, lost hearing in her right ear – all of it - by the time she was eight years old. So she had time to assimilate that fact into life as an adult and as a musician, singing in choir, studying voice and pursuing a performance degree at Belmont University. Her left ear’s troubles came as more of an unnerving surprise.

“It was kind of a funny turn of events, where I found out what I really wanted to do, and at the same time, the universe seemed to be telling me NO,” Nutt said in a recent interview.
