Zion Lion is the "baddest band to hit the Kalamazoo music scene. The members are a combination of several bands from the Kalamazoo area that crossed each others path along the way and decided to form what we believe to be the right mix of reggae. African zouk, mucosa, zoukous and some Afro-latin influences. Some of the members have had the honor of opening and sharing the stage with local, national and international reggae artists such as Freddie McGreggor, Pato Batun, Winston Jarrett, Culture, Beenie Man, Lucky Dube, Mikey Dread and the Meditations.
Dylan is a multi-talented artist. Not only does he have a beautiful voice, but he also is skilled in multiple instruments. He is a great local singer and songwriter, and has performed for numerous shows in the Kalamazoo area.
