Being raised by two classically trained musicians it’s easy to understand how Zedd became such an incredible musician. He started playing piano at the young age of four and started composing music shortly after, and has never stopped creating music. He’s one of the most prolific producers in the EDM world and undoubtedly one of the most well known outside of the EDM realm..

Find out some facts about the genius behind hits like ‘Clarity’ ‘Stay’ and ‘Shave It’ Zedd below.

○ He’s a Grammy winner for Best Dance Recording in 2013 and a Billboard Music Award winner for Top Dance/Electronic Album in 2016.

○ His breakthrough into to stardom came from winning two Beatport remix contests one from Armand Van Helden and another from Fatboy Slim. That’s win Skrillex took notice and signed him to OWSLA.

 

 

 

 

“ Being yourself is what will make you survive through anything. 

If you make music to please someone, 

it’s the first step in the wrong direction.

 Always do what you believe in, no matter what people say. 

Only way to go!”

-ZEDD
