Zamar aka Steve Stoddart’s music ministry started as early as when he was nine years old with his younger brother Wayne Stoddart. They both ministered songs in schools and churches during their earlier years. Zamar started his recording career with a Jamaican gospel group called Beloved in 1998. He wrote all eleven tracks on that album and was featured as lead vocalist on three of these songs. The Beloved project, ‘River of Life’ was also produced by Zamar and was well received by the Caribbean market.
While he was a member of the group he appeared on all the major gospel shows in Jamaica. Shows such as Fun in the Sun, Gospel Train, Genesis and Gospel In Motion are some of the events he performed on during this period. Over the years Zamar has shared the stage with the likes of, Hezekiah Walker, Papa San, Stichie, DJ Nicolas, Chevelle Franklyn, Toby Mac, Prodigal Son, Change, Trinity 5:7, Carlene Davis and many others.
Since then Zamar has started his solo career. His first project as a solo artist, ‘Reggae Praise’ has been getting tremendous response. From this album, the songs 'Turn It Over Unto God' and 'To Me' are former #1 songs on the Links Fm Roots Reggae Chart in Florida. The title track 'Reggae Praise' has been climbing the charts rapidly since the release of the album and is currently at #12 after three weeks.
His aim is to keep in tune with the divine inspiration so that he can continuously produce gospel reggae at its highest quality.
