HOLY SMOKE|STEVEN ZEHNDER


































———————————————————————
IN CONVERSATION|STEVEN ZEHNDER

Name|Steven Zehnder
Age|21
Hometown|Louisville, Kentucky

How did you get discovered?
Basically I was told to pursue it through my mother and constantly being asked if I was a model all the time on the streets.
What were you doing prior to modeling?
Studying sports management and playing soccer at Campbellsville University.
People would be surprised to know that I...
am a yoga instructor 
What's your latest obsession?
Amsterdam trap music
Your most prize possession?
My backpack, I got it before going off to college and have taken it all over the United States. It's covered in patches that I think really show my personality.
Growing up, who did you look up to as your hero?
My parents, growing up we really struggled but they never stopped showing love and providing for me and my brothers. They are by far the hardest workers I know.
When is the last time you said, "I Love You" to someone?
Yesterday to my parents and my dog, Scout on Facetime
Three adjectives that best describes you:
Passionate, Work-Horse and Driven
Describe your personal style:
Lots and lots of skinny jeans. Stripes shirts and bomber jackets are my thing too. My style is super inspired by punk and metal rock bands and Dutch music producers.
Your favorite place you have travel to:
Philmont, NM, me and my dad went there and hiked for two weeks and it was unbelievably beautiful.
Your favorite film and scene from the film:
Whiplash—Scene: My favorite scene is the end when the drummer finally gets praise from the composer, so, so cool!
Your favorite type music:
Hardstyle and Trap music. I love these styles because they are so heavy and I feel like so much emotion is involved with it. My biggest inspiration is Yellow Claw and their whole Barong Family label. Every artist is so unique and amazing!
Your favorite sport:
Sport: Soccer
Team: Chelsea Football Club
Player: Frank Lampard
If there's a destination or item you would recommend us to check out or visit about your native country/city or town, what would you recommend?
Louisville, Kentucky—I'd take you to Bardstown Road in the Highlands of Louisville. It is by far the coolest and weirdest place in Louisville and I fit in perfectly.
If you were given a indie cable show, what type of show would it be? Which song would you choose as your theme song?
I probably try and make a sit down talk show similar to Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon but a lot less formal and with D and C list celebrities and music artists. I'd get Diplo to produce me a catchy theme song.
Craziest thing you ever done:
Back in college, I got particularly intoxicated one night and jumped off like a 20 feet cliff into a lake and got the nickname, Scuba Steve.
Your wish for the remainder of 2016?
Like a credit card or something that would get me into all the concerts I wanted to see.
