Yuzima

Bonafied rock and pop singer-songwriter Yuzima is definitely making waves. Early in 2010 he released his debut album, Its Wonderful. Only after releasing songs from it bit-by-bit, building up a buzz, when the genre bending cd hit, he quickly sold out of them. But this isn’t new to the swiftly rising artist, he already released two EPs Yuzima the EP and The Cosmonaut, which received fabulous reviews from the likes of Treblezine music blog and all three releases got complements from a diverse group of celebrities including Carson Kressley, former AOL executive, and New York socialite Tatiana Platt, who featured him on her tastemaker website Fame Game, while hip music blog Faronheit has been faithfully blogging MP3’s from his releases--they have featured five songs so far. Those same songs where featured on The Hype Machine.

Yuzima was born in New York City to a musician father, who played steel drums, and a nomadic schoolteacher mother. At a young age, after a tumultuous split he and his mother moved to a small New England town where Yuzima, who at the time rapped, learned to fit in by performing with the local alternative bands. He eventually added U2, Smashing Pumpkins and Nirvana to his list of influences; that at the time included Bob Marley, Michael Jackson

and Parliament and Parliament Funkadelic . Yuzima also started recording at this time with a local DJ, trudging miles through deep snow banks to get to a friend's bedroom that masqueraded as a recording studio. These sessions culminated in old lost recordings; those lost recordings; Yuzima says, prepared him for his career in music.
