MOZIAH (Marcus Moziah Guerrier) is a storyteller. The 23-year-old Haitian-American creative from central New Jersey has been surrounded by artistic inspiration from an early age, and that energy went on to fuel his own pursuits as he grew into adulthood. After watching his dad sing around the house as a kid, Guerrier sang in church choirs, theatre productions, and even played in a punk ska band in high school.
While at NYU’s esteemed Tisch School of the Arts, he started to release music under the name MOZIAH—his middle name shared with Jamaican activist Marcus Garvey. With the help of his collaborators, MOZIAH wrote, co-produced, and released his first album Dax Nextdoor in 2018, which was a "coming of age story about fear, love, and learning to fuck with yourself." Along with the album, MOZIAH co-directed two music videos with his childhood friends: “Can’t Stay In One Place” in October 2018 and ”Skerred (feat. Still Gosling and AANI)“ in June 2019. Last year, MOZIAH self-produced and released Finessa Hudgens which included collabs with CamRus (Camrus Johnson, CW’s Batwoman), Carter Ace, and mau.
Strapped with an eclectic mix of influences and training in entertainment, MOZIAH strives to use music to tell true stories that KNOCK. 💜
