About

Mozez, born Osmond Wright, is a London-based singer, song writer and producer.

He has an enduring international fan base, which has grown from 2000 onwards from when he was a founding member of Zero7, the highly successful British trip hop ambient band.

After contributing to the first two Zero7 albums (Simple Things and When It Falls) Mozez launched his solo career and now records in his own studio and on his own label, London-based Numen Records.

As a solo artist, he has already released two albums (So Still and Time Out), and aims to put out a third during the summer of 2014. It will be supported by a US tour.

During 2013, Mozez released several singles including Wings, a song from the forthcoming album, which has had more than 1.5m hits on Youtube alone.

He then released the single Be Like Water as the soundtrack to No Way As Way, a documentary film about martial arts icon Bruce Lee produced in the US and distributed by Warner Brothers.
2013 also saw him busy with live performances, including an international tour with Nightmares On Wax (DJ George Evelyn) as guest vocalist in Europe and the US.

In a review of So Still, critic Norman Mayers wrote in California-based Prefix Magazine: “Every so often an artist comes around who refuses to be categorized, someone whose music is so creative and unusual that it manages to simply exist on its own merits. Mozez is such an artist.”
Mozez earliest musical roots were based on gospel, soul and reggae, but he grew to embrace a wide range of other musical genres and styles. Jimi Hendrix and The Beatles became as big an influence on his musical taste as Curtis Mayfield, The Commodores, and Marvin Gaye.

“I was an avid listener, and all those guys became a part of my musical assimilation,” Mozez says.

Mozez learned to sing in gospel choirs in Jamaica. After moving to London, his first major break as a professional artist came in 1996 when, as part of British vocal house duo Spirits, he had hits with Don't Bring Me Down and Spirit Inside.

He then became established worldwide soon afterwards as lead male singer for Zero7.
He wrote songs for the band’s highly successful first two albums, platinum-selling Simple Things and When It Falls, which quickly drove Zero7 from being merely an experimental trip hop act, to become the huge mainstream success story of the alternative ambient genre.

His debut solo album So Still was released in October 2005 to great acclaim, a more mature and soulful work featuring many of the down-tempo elements he has become known for. Collaborators on the album included Madonna producer Guy Sigsworth, Nightmares On Wax and Henry Binns of Zero7.

The album launched his solo career, and he followed it up with Time Out.
His works have been used for soundtracks for film and TV such as Running For Time, CSI Miami and, more recently, for the Bruce Lee documentary, released in July 2013.
