lordkez, Apple Music’s New Artist Spotlight

Born in the humble town of Kimberley, the artist, singer and songwriter Keziah Zoë Meyers, known to her fans as lordkez, has sculpted a unique style of music with gentle beats and down-to-earth lyrics. This has earned her the prestigious title of Apple Music’s New Artist Spotlight for the month of June.

Her career has flourished with several releases including the unofficial EP titled “Mentality”, featuring the tracks “Faded”, “Mentality” and “Peace of Mind”. The single “FLEX” shows her versatility and a smooth rap/hip-hop vocal tone, but her “magnum opus” so far is her first official EP, “Revenge Season”, which can be found on Apple Music. With soulful rap-infused instrumentals and a display of strong vocal versatility, it promises to be a work of art.

Her music reflects her childhood in South Africa and many years spent in Abu Dhabi. This multicultural upbringing exposed her to a mix of musical influences which can be felt in her music. At the tender age of twenty, her mellow and entrancing vocals speak of life’s great journey, pulling together love, pain, passion, regret, and ambition. With fluid instrumental backing – guitar, piano, and a dark, deep bass – she adds plenty of soul to every track.

The Apple Music New Artist Spotlight is an artist development feature, giving each South Africa artist four weeks of editorial support in Apple Music, including in the Mzansi Hits section and key Apple Music playlists such as The A-List: South Africa, Best of the Week, Mzansi Soul and more.
