Los Angeles, CA based Jez Dior emerged onto the music scene in 2013 with his singles ‘Candles‘ and ‘Love Me To Death‘. Marrying grunge with Hip Hop, his music has been well received by rappers and rock artists alike and has landed him opening spots for Chance The Rapper, J.Cole, G Eazy, Kanye and more. In 2014 Jez released The Funeral EP which received accolades from publications such as Vibe, Hip Hop DX, NYLON, MTV and HypeTrak. Cut to 2016, where Jez has rebranded with a new sound borne of personal growth and a confidence not only in his own skin but within his writing process.
Blurring the lines between rock and rap in a time where rappers are ‘punk’, Jez channels life and death experience to create a unique sound that blends singer, rapper, rocker and lyricist. Where his previous releases often depicted loss and the addiction of his father (Steve Dior) that tore his family apart, this new chapter sees him letting go of heartache and pain to focus on love, creative expression and the future.
His new single ‘Loved You First‘, taken from his upcoming EP, is available now and you can watch the video to the single below.
