In the summer of 2017, Zion released his debut full-length record You're Invited. The folk-rock album received praise and local media attention following its anticipated release. Crossfader Magazine wrote that in an era of “lo-fi bedroom projects, it’s refreshing to hear a young creative voice this professionally produced, fully realized, and cohesively structured around a distinct personality and energy.”
Less than a year later, Zion is releasing an EP titled “Did Not Wake up Today” on January 20th, 2018. This project features heavier topics and harder rock than his debut album. Even before its release, the title track was recognized by AFROPUNK: “Rodman turns up the volume of his melodic indie pop, with his stunning voice just barely masking his anger beneath the hook.”
Zion currently lives in Chicago. While getting settled in a new city, he is exploring folk venues and putting together a professional band to dig into the midwest rock scene. He will be touring from Chicago to Boston in early May of 2018.
