Rob "Zii" Taylor fills the room with a soulful and sultry vibe that sets the mood for a whole lot of dancing and grinding or chilling and grooving with the one you desire. He puts a modern day R & B twist on Reggae sounds that become something that the audience has not heard before. Think the island vibes of Bob Marley Jason Mraz, Jack Johnson, the silkiness of Sade and the the groove of Grover Washington Jr.... Zii's music is a result of his upbringing and the influences surrounding him. Born and raised in the U.K, his family later moved to Saint Lucia, where he was raised and remains today. The unique mix of musical influences (his Mom and Dad both played piano) has had a strong influence on the interesting sound that he has developed over the years. Zii has an energy in his performances that reaches out and grabs the audience to the point that they are singing along with him and they become part on the exchange...experience. His ability to turn it out vocally as well as being an accomplished saxophonist who has shared stages with Shaggy, Fantasia, Michael Bolton, Jimmy Cliff, Dave Koz, Morgan Heritage and many others make him an experienced artist. He has performed on the Reggae Blitz US tour with Ky-mani Marley, son of Bob Marley, alongside Maxi Priest, Toots and the Maytals and Andrew Tosh. The evolution of his music into something else has taken him to a different level. With the CD release of "Destiny", Zii demonstrates his ability to compose/create/arrange and perform music that has an authentic sound. "Destiny" is a CD that you play once and then add to your "favorites" play list on iTunes. From Bob Marley's "Mellow Mood" re-mixed and mastered featuring Lady Saw, to the electric sounds of "Gyal Groove"- original music featuring Ken Hardy, this CD makes you want to turn it up! Rob "Zii" Taylor has been a force in the Caribbean music scene for many years and is currently working on a live project that involves some of the best musicians on the island, and is looking forward to touring throughout 2012.
