Biography

Every genre has this one unique, visionary individual with a mission to revolutionize music and whose destiny is to define the sound of a generation. Zaiter, a native of the boogie-down Bronx, is the true gem of the Latin Urban sound. Growing up in a musician’s family (his father Jose was a base player) he received an early introduction to music. As a young child his father and uncles began to cultivate his talent and encouraged him to embrace his musical roots. He grew to love the music of his Latin and Urban heritage from El Gran Combo to Motown.

“As a young boy I remember the song “Roxanne, Roxanne” by UTFO playing on the radio. I really liked the song, but most of all I wanted to know how the song was made. This was the first time I felt the desire to write, sing, and perform. ” - Zaiter.

Having found an interest in music he began teaching himself how to play the piano. He also began learning how to sing. From Classical Music to Latin Jazz, he wanted to learn it all. His hard work and natural talent made him stand out from the rest of the crowd. While continuing his music education at the Boys Harbor Center in El Barrio in New York Zaiter met Eddie Torres. Zaiter saw in him the ideal role model – a true maestro of Latin music. He soon realized that Latin music was his true passion.

In 1999, Zaiter left New York after his father’s tragic death with the hope of starting a new life. He moved to Tampa, Florida and began working on his first album entitled “I AM EDDY Z.”. As an artist working in a true recording studio for the first time, Zaiter wanted to showcase his musical evolution – from the small boy learning to play the piano to the grown man with roots firmly planted in the Urban music scene. The record received excellent reviews and was well liked by the radio stations and clubs in the Tampa Bay area. This gave Zaiter a push into the local music scene with multiple performances, the most memorable ones being Latin Fest and Guavaween. The record also gave Zaiter the opportunity to work with local artists and singers.

“Music gives me life. I feel alive when I am on stage! It’s like I make a spiritual connection to the music I create, it takes over and I have to let the crowd know what I was feeling at the time I wrote the song.” - Zaiter

After “I AM EDDY Z,” Zaiter continued to write, sing, and produce music. He continued to work with a number of local and national artists such as Dexter Redding, Richie Rivera aka Richie Rich, Delgado "Double Edge" Cook, Joe Smith, Samantha Molin, Whitney Wolanin, Sasha, Genesis, and Salsa’s Latin sensation Miosotis. Through his work with others Zaiter continued to develop his sounds and style.

“I love to sing, create, and perform my own music, that's why I have a studio in my home. This way if inspiration strikes in the middle of the night I can get up, go into my studio, and create.” - Zaiter

Zaiter’s smooth voice and unforgettable hooks create his truly unique sound. His commitment to excellence is driven by his desire to connect to his audience. When he is on stage the passion that he projects through his songs demonstrates his talent, a pure musical talent that only an artist of his caliber can bring to the stage
