LOCAL REGGAE TALENT ‘ZIONOMI’ SET TO CREATE USA MUSICAL WAVES
BROOKLYN, NEW YORK – Saint Lucian recording artist and performer ‘Zionomi’ is set to embark on a multi-city/multi-state tour of the USA ‘The Coming of Zionomi’ in an effort to market and promote his latest independent debut album compilation “Shade Red”.

Zionomi’s lovelorn ballad remix ‘Wherever You Are’ enjoyed success in 2010 and 2011 on Hot 93.7 WZMX CBS radio Hartford Connecticut on the ‘Reggae Ride to Work with morning crew’ and the ‘Sunday Nite Reggae Riddims’. His sounds personify soulfulness and there is a meaningful message in his lyrics as well. Two notable French Creole songs being “Kon Ça” and “Kah-Wey” which are riding the Francophone airwaves globally with his contagious voice as well as hit songs such as “Give Praises”, “Just A Friend”, “Love How You Whining So”.

His lyrics embody experiences/observations molded by the ghetto, the media and society on a whole and has offered him expressive freedom, meditation and a platform to educate and entertain.
