Born and raised in Harlem, Zion sculpted his craft as an artist early on in life. At age 7 the young performer began writing songs and recording them on an old tape recorder. As he grew older, his talent began to shine through, earning him recognition and visibility from all who took notice.
"I was about 11 years old when my aunt took me to the studio for the 1st time", Zion says, recalling his first professional recording studio experience. The connection with the environment was instant and Zion would never let it go. At age 12, he had successfully completed an entire album, which he performed and sold. Although those profits wouldn't prove to be significantly lucrative, the early replication of the music industry's main objective was practice for what would soon come.
At age 15, Zion would finally face the music. He was approached by record label A&Rs as well as various other industry insiders, all promising the same things. After much deliberation however, Zion chose to put the offers on a back-burner in hope of sharpening his skill to better his career
It's with thoughts like these, that Zion has always been able to incorporate his hometown Harlem, in all of his music. Whether the feel, or the sound, he promises 'to make you understand (him)' through each and every song.
