Rob ‘Zi’ Taylor biography

Rob ‘Zi’ Taylor, is described by some as the Caribbean's Kenny G but with a funkier edge. As he lives and works mostly in the Caribbean he has soaked up much of what the Caribbean has to offer musically.

‘Zi’ (his preferred name) has shared stages with artists such as Shaggy, Fanatsia, Maxi Priest, Jimmy Cliff, Dave Koz and Morgan Heritage. He has performed on the Reggae Blitz US tour with Ky-mani Marley (son of Bob Marley) as well as Maxi Priest, Toots and the Maytals and Andrew Tosh. Zi has also performed at venues such as Reggae on the River, Universal Studios in Hollywood, Wolftrap, House of Blues in Chicago and Orlando to name a few. He dazzled patrons when playing on the Pigeon Island main stage at the 2005 St. Lucia Jazz Festival; the main stage at the 2006 Vincey Blues Fest and the VP Records sponsored Xmas Jump Off Concert Freedom Project (featuring Bushman and Mya).

Zi is currently working with his smooth island group ‘Solefood’, promoting his debut album “ Rise Up” and composing new material. He is still a popular performer at major events throughout the island such as the 2007 Cricket World Cup and the 16th Annual St. Lucia Jazz Festival. He is also busy spinning Jazzy grooves on his own live radio show on St. Lucia’s Rhythm FM.
