Moziah the Maker

Jamaica

Vocalist, songwriter and beatmaker/producer, Moziah was born Dec 19th, 1983 in Kingston Jamaica. Raised in Portmore, he attended primary and high schools in Kingston which meant waking up really early to catch the bus to school.

It was on these bus rides and the subsequent walks where Moziah’s love of music would take shape. Listening to sound and DJ clashes on this journey every day turned him into a reggae/dancehall Wikipedia capable of spitting any lyric dubplate or beatbox any riddim.

What gives Moziah his edge is his love of other genres; He will sing Bonnie Tyler’s Total Eclipse of the Heart with as much fervor as Ninja Man’s Murder Dem. This love makes him as comfortable producing a 90s boom bap beat as a lovers rock reggae riddim.

A self-proclaimed ‘plugin junkie’ who calls NYC and Kingston home, his riddims may fuse genres but Moziah’s vocals are unmistakably those of a reggae artist.

His new single There Comes a Time (is about staying focused and positive during hard times while rising to the occasion) out on all platforms was exclusively written and produced by him. He plans on releasing a single every month until his EP release in December.
