Whats new? Quite a lot really, too much to talk about right now. Let me start with saying there is a lot of new material on my youtube channel http://www.youtube.com/ZeoZeonardo I have been working hard to ensure my videos stand out from the rest, including my own (LOL basically I even compete with myself) Secondly [...]
From the moment he picked up the mic, Zeo Zeonardo has been in a league all on his own. In an ever growing scene where MCs can be found almost anywhere, individuality and authenticity have always been important to Zeo from day one, even in the confusing mist of change. Growing up in Wolverhampton, he learnt very early to craft a voice and style that was uniquely his and get his name known in the Midlands bassline and grime scene.
âI like to mix music with comedy it is an important thing for me,â He Says, âit takes away a lot of the stresses that come with music. Although I mix the music with comedy I always make sure it is good quality music and lyrics.â
Zeo has worked with some established artist and producers such as JME (BBK), DJ Q (BBC Radio 1Xtra), Trilla, Bassboy and TRC to name a few. These tracks have been played on local and national radio stations and featured on several blogs, such as SBTV, GRM Daily and RWD mag. With strong support from BBC Introducing, Zeo has witnessed his fan base grow and become more diverse around the UK and Europe.
With tracks such as, âBack into Timeâ, you get a real insight to Zeo as a person, and shows he is still just a kid at heart. The song was chosen as Song Of the Week by BBC 1xtra and was on the playlist of popular DJs such as Charlie Sloth, Trevor Nelson, Gemma Cairney to name a few. (Official Video of this can be seen here). Nationally, Zeo is commonly known for his bassline smash hit âBad Boy Tunesâ, produced by TRC and his appearance on Tim Westwoodâs âCrib Sessionsâ. After appearing on an episode of BBC 2 TV series No Hats No Trainers, Zeo has continued to study Interactive Media at university and touring the underground UK scene.
Zeo has recently released independently, Solitary 2 which is on all digital platforms e.g. iTunes, Amazon, Spotify etc. Songs from the mix tape have been played on 1xtra, Radio One, Kiss FM. He also had 2 songs featured on the Ministry of Sound âSound Of Bassline 2â, which is also still on sale in HMV. In 2013, Zeo was a competition winner in the official Adidas âUnite All Originalsâ campaign.
Zeo has further proved that he is an artist with a multi-dimensional talent. Not only is he an accomplished music producer, he also directs and edits a large amount of his music videos. Zeo has accumulated over 1million combined YouTube views, with subscribers to his YouTube channel is growing each day.
He says, âWhen it comes to videos, my aim is do something nobody has done before, or something you would not expect to see me doing. Sometimes this can be difficult as I often think of the video before I have even written the song. So I find myself trying to write about what i imagine myself doing in the video.
With a new mix tape, single and video released, Zeo is side-stepping limits, one hit a time.
