Since emerging in 2007, Rizon (pronounced Rise – On) was a finalist in the National Youth Awards and nominated for the ‘Jazz/World Music Composition of the Year’ at the COTT Music Awards 2007 and ‘Publisher of the Year’ in 2008. His music continues to inspire both young and old listeners throughout the Caribbean.
This Trinidad born and raised singer/songwriter/producer has always preferred to focus on conscious lyrics, believing that while many entertainers exist, mere entertainment alone does not bring positive change. With this in mind, he also understands the need for his message to reach the masses. And so, it is this blend of positive lyrical content merged with his rich and enchanting voice that makes Rizon unique and appealing. There's a certain universality about his message. It is obvious that tackling big issues is his modus operandi.
His video for the song “Reach” has achieved the #1 position for 4 weeks straight on Tempo’s Cross Caribbean Countdown. This album is a compilation of sweet island music in which he has worked with some of the best reggae, dancehall and soca producers and artistes in the region.
As an ambassador for Caribbean music he has been featured on many famous US radio stations. Recently on a trip to Los Angeles he had an interview with well known radio personality Wayne Jobson on 103.1 Indie where he was highlighted as an emerging icon from Trinidad and Tobago.
RIZON is set to create a lasting impact on the Caribbean Music scene and hopes to “reach” the world through the power of his music which is distinctively Caribbean and youthful while remaining conscious and real.
