At the age of fifteen Zyon was introduced to the Rastafarian faith by his older brother Desmond ‘Nyah Fyah’ Getfield who lived in Florida where he attended the University of Tampa. Zyon I’s interest in Rastafari was so strong that he immediately decided to move out of his father’s house and live in Florida with his brother. While residing in Florida, he attended high school and worked in the evenings which enabled him to take care of himself financially. His brother was also a selector on a popular sound system called Hype Revolution. Zyon stated in magazines I always had a strong love for music, and it wasn’t long before he began travelling with the sound system as an opening act for established entertainers such as Capleton, Cocoa Tea, Shinehead, Sister Nancy and Johnny Osbourne. Zyon I was also drawn to the works of poets and philosophers such as Marcus Garvey Mutabaruka and Dr John Henry. What he learned from them has helped shape his world-view and heavily influence his music. Hence is his zeal for life, self-reliance, black consciousness, all things positive and the vegan lifestyle.
Zyon I launched his recording career in 2011 with the release of a single titled, These Streets, on the 876 Records imprint. The humble entertainer who lists Bob Marley, Jimmy Cliff, Jah Cure and Beres Hammond as some of his musical influences is currently promoting his latest single titled Take Me. The song that was produced by New York-based producer Daniel Laporte and its accompanying video is currently enjoying worldwide rotation.Since his emergence on the reggae music scene Zyon I has been hailed by many music industry insiders as one of the new shining lights in reggae music. Zyon stated in magazines to his fans never give up on your dreams cause life is short keep soaring.
