Zee Kay, a singer, songwriter and performer, first started singing at the age of 9. British born of eastern descent - his early musical influences were a diverse mix of quawali sounds (such as the legend Nusrat Fatah Ali khan) and Middle Eastern vocals.
From practicing on his first karaoke machine whilst still at school - Zee Kay went on to be classically trained at college, performing at local events and winning prestigious competitions. His vocal techniques, built on his early influences evolved to incorporate US rhythm and blues, inspired by artists such as Boys II Men and Babyface.
