Keznamdi & 7th St Band
Tap into a “feel-good” musical vibration of up and coming Reggae artist Keznamdi who will be releasing his eagerly awaited debut six-song EP Bridging The Gap on Tuesday April 30th, 2013 through Higher Intelligence and Independent Distribution Collective. The first single and video from the EP release is “Weekend,” which was recently filmed in Jamaica and premiered online on Friday April 5th 2013. The Bridging The Gap EP also features guest artists Chronixx and Kabaka Pyramid. Kez is hard at work on a full-length album that will be released in later this year.
“My music is a message and everyone of my song dem have a purpose. You need fi just sit back and relax or stand up and jam…whatever you are moved to do (he chuckles). Just tek a listen and experience it for yourself and more important than anything else, digest my message.” explains Keznamdi.
Kez has partnered with Higher Intelligence, LLC. Higher Intelligence acts as both a record label and management team. This artist is positioned to reach the world’s stage with his eclectic blend of melodies and conscious, positive lyrics. Keznamdi’s music has also been influenced by musical icons such as Stephen Marley, Damian Marley and Chakula, the internationally known Reggae group who his parents are lead singers of. Kez spent his early years touring the world and recording on their 10 albums in the recording studio located in his home, buried in the lush hills surrounding Kingston, Jamaica.
“This is not a choice or hobby for me, Music chose me. It’s a way of life and the only thing I have ever known,” explains a passionate Keznamdi, describing why his path has already been carved out in stone. With a guitar always in hand and golden locks on his head, Keznamdi’s music is just as captivating as his image. His personality and sense of humor on stage is an immediate magnet for people of all cultures. Look for Keznamdi to introduce himself to music fans with a tour across the USA and in Jamaica over the next year. Performances are being scheduled to support the release of his new EP, and even a few festival performances are on tap for this amazing artist this summer. Keznamdi is an artist to look out for in the years to come.
