HOSEA [Mr. Zay]
Hosea also known by many as Mr. Zay, is a very gifted and talented singer, songwriter and composer; He has been a musician all of his life. Hosea has been anointed to play the piano, keyboard, organ and drums (and is currently learning the Acoustic Guitar and Bass). By the time he was 10 years old Hosea had a genuine love for music and began putting songs together at the age of fifteen. Hosea began playing the keyboards and then everything else began to take off from there.
Hosea has had the support of his biggest fan; His Wife Maria has not only been an inspiration, but has worked closely with PSAJJ Management to assist with Hosea's career direction. Maria is being challenged by sons Hosea Jr., Ke'Von, and Xavier in vying for Hosea's number 1 fan position. The three young men are following in the footsteps of Dad, each making their own particular mark musically. All three are very talented young musicians dedicated to the craft, while managing to compete in their favorite sports.
Hosea recorded and released his first CD, “Bread of Life” in 2006, and followed by a CD entitled, “The Mr.Zay Project” (2008), and shortly afterwards he released another CD entitled, “I Need A Word” (2010); all of these were released under the Grafted In Label, operated by Eugene Meadows based in Hamilton, Ohio.
Hosea has opened on the stage for many of today’s artist such as Trinity 3 5 7 and Rance Allen, along with a few other local and national contemporary artist. Hosea has also performed with Terry “Zapp” Troutman of Zapp Band., Hosea sung lead vocals of major hits songs such as, “Computer Love,” “I Wanna Be Your Man”, and “Keep on Dancing.” Hosea and Terry Troutman (Terry Troutman is the younger brother of Roger Troutman) have worked together and have even produced each other’s CD projects(Mr. ZAY Project and the Terry “Zapp” Troutman project).
Hosea’s vision is to create urban music with a positive message. It's this message that Hosea really desires to reach the youth with; A style of music that will reach out and touch people who would not normally hear the gospel. Hosea has said, “Once they hear the words, they begin to receive the message of the song; If the message is right, it doesn't matter the genre. God bless, and know that I love you all......HOSEA!!”
