Zi, a professional saxophonist, singer, composer, programmer and producer, who lives and works in the Caribbean.
Already sharing stages with Shaggy, The Fugees, Maxi Priest, Jimmy Cliff, Darius Rucker and many others.
Personally requested to perform at Queen Elizabeth II's Golden Jubilee celebration, the Dutch Queen's Birthday celebration and for Nelson Mandela, on his visit to St. Lucia. He recently completed a US tour with Maxi Priest and Grammy nominee Ky-mani Marley, son of Bob Marley.
Now ready to take on the world with his debut album, fusing Reggae, R&B, Funk and Jazz styles.
Zi' is focused, fresh and easy to work with. Put the right people behind him and like his fans say, 'He's goin' places!'.
In April 2004 Zi released his long awaited original album "Rise Up" a 12 track cd encompassing his many moods and styles.
He had the good fortune of recording the album in Miami with the musicians he worked with and others he met whilst touring with Ky-mani and to top it all off was graced with the expertise of multi-platinum, grammy award winning engineer, Bob Rosa, whose track record includes artists such as Prince, Whitney Housten, Janet Jackson, Nsync and countless others. Although the intention was for Bob to only mix a couple of the tracks after he heard the others and realized the potential of Zi as a solo artist he offered to mix the entire album as in his own words "it's a refreshing change to work on music with so much flavour, it's comes like therapy for me. I needed this".
Despite his youth, the experience Zi' has already gained, through his many musical endeavors, places him in a good position to direct his music career, the way he envisions it.
Constantly aware of the ups and downs of the "music biz". Zi' maintains his opinion, the importance of keeping level headed, humble and staying focused on the goal, is the only way to go if you want to get yourself out there.
"It's a great feeling when someone comes up to you and says 'Your music touched me' It's then, you realize the importance of sharing that gift with the rest of the world".
