Still working on that hot first release.



It was 1989, during the turn of hip hop when Zarrette “Zeyi” Rogers made his grand debut. Little did he know that he would elevate into the musician he is today. Zeyi was introduced to music by his father, who loved to play jazz music like “People Make the World Go Round”. Growing up in the 90’s Zeyi had an interest in mainstream music. However it wasn't until Zeyi began college when he realized he had a deep passion for all genres of music. Connecticut College was the birth place of Zeyi’s musical career. Playing around on his Gateway desktop, Zeyi and friends experimented with music. Once he realized the love he had for the art he made the life shifting decision to pursue his musical career. After transferring to Hamilton College, (WHERE) he joined H.E.O.P (High Enfluence on People) consisting of 2 other artists in addition to Zeyi. It was during this timeframe that he released his first mixtape titled, ’80’s Baby’ which, gained local support, motivating Zeyi to proceed with his sophomore and junior mixtape, ‘Junior Boy’ and Swagger Central. Zeyi followed Swagger Central with a 19 track project titled, ‘Working for Bill” which allowed Zeyi to showcase his artistic side specifically with his first visual for single “Dark Brown Shades” shot by LPZ Media. It was during Working For Bill, where Zeyi learned that performing was a craft which required as much growth and attention as the music itselfl. ( What does Zeyi do differently duringhis performance). During his progression Zeyi joined ‘City Lights”, a creative music collaboration including City Magic and Christian Express (of Rec Philly) associated with the musical movement, ‘City Lights’. It was during his affiliation with City Lights when Zeyi began producing and engineering his own music. (What is Zeyi’s style in producing? – Characterized by unique basslines, free form drum patterns, ambient chords and keys) “Being a performing artist and a recording artist are two different entities” - Zeyi Recently Zeyi has grown musically and has opened for artist such as Three 6 Mafia, Talib Kweli,  Dave East and Manolo Rose. He also participating in the Deans List Tour and has been an act since 2013.  Touring across states at diverse colleges and sharing his talent with anyone who appreciates his music.  Zeyi is currently working on his mixtape “No Promises” which is in effect to release in 2016. Zeyi was recently signed to MorValue. Zeyi feels he is able to tap into the emotion of his listeners. His music speaks to the individual trying to carve their own path with their bare hands.Zeyi defines himself as his brothers keeper. He is fueled by music which also fuels his own craft.

“Back to my reality I'm just focused on the next episode” - Zeyi
