James Z asserts his orginality by switching between rap and singing, contributing to a unique musical style as well as "radiating personality" (Silence Ephémère). He handles sensitive topics with a quirky playful state of mind, on his "very own groovy way" (JustMusic).


    James Z, real name James Ivan Zoro, aged 24, born in Reunion Island, moved to the Pyrenees and grew up there until he turned 18. He then established himself in Paris where he started his musical career. Music has always had a presence in his life after taking up guitar and piano at a very young age. He then discovered Jazz clubs and Jam sessions, which add to the groovy side to his artistic universe.

    His music will speak to fans of Anderson Paak, Rilès, Anna Kova or Andre 3000. In order to listen to his music everywhere, you will have to wait for the release of his first EP in 2019.

    On stage he’s accompanied by his Cool Band (drummer, saxophonist /violinist, backing vocalist and Dj) to convey an explosion of good vibes !
