Zaia is a 21-year-old Atlanta native following his dreams through the rhythm of his own time and sound. Growing up in Atlanta, Zaia was surrounded by a blend of music, art and culture from many different time periods. Through this, he has begun to create and hone a style that is completely unique to himself. “I just make whatever I feel like making. I just want it to sound good” is the mantra he lives by. Ironically, his music career would’ve never started if not for getting cut from his high school basketball team for fighting. “Yeah, after I got cut, I just began to hang around my friends all the time. All they did was make music, and I had something to say”.
