Infusing online gaming with music to bring fans together, the multi-faceted musician MOZIAH has partnered with gaming gear leader HyperX for his upcoming “Jerrymorganpark” music video shot in Nintendo’s Animal Crossing. This mashup marks an incredible crossover moment between gaming, music, and pop culture.

 

Kicking off the collaboration, MOZIAH and HyperX are hosting a massive Twitch party and stream session featuring Q&As with MOZIAH, famed gamer Jacki Jing, and video directors Camrus Johnson and Charis Storms via HyperX’s Twitch channel on Sept. 12 at 7 p.m. EST.

 

Emerging pop artist and storyteller MOZIAH grew up playing Nintendo Wii and their old school emulators and has always used inspiration from video games in his music, driving his collaboration with HyperX.

 

MOZIAH is more than just an emerging pop artist—he is a storyteller by trade. The 23-year-old Haitian-American creative from central New Jersey has been surrounded by artistic inspiration from an early age, and that energy went on to fuel his own pursuits as he grew into adulthood. After watching his dad sing around the house as a kid, Guerrier sang in church choirs, theater productions, and even played in a punk-ska band in high school.

 

During his first week at NYU’s esteemed Tisch School of the Arts, MOZIAH received a bootleg copy of Logic from his roommate and began making beats between classes while he studied Drama.  At age 18, he started to release music under the name MOZIAH—his middle name shared with Jamaican activist Marcus Garvey. With the help of his collaborators, MOZIAH wrote, co-produced, and released his first album Dax Nextdoor in 2018—which gained hundreds of thousands of streams across platforms and was a "coming of age story about fear, love, and learning to f*** with yourself." 

 

Along with the album, MOZIAH co-directed two music videos with his childhood friends, Cinematographer Nicolas J Capra and director Tyler Crosby:  “Can’t Stay In One Place” in October 2018 and ”Skerred (feat. Still Gosling and AANI)“ in June 2019. Last year, MOZIAH self-produced and released Finessa Hudgens which included collabs with CamRus (Camrus Johnson, CW’s Batwoman), Carter Ace, and mau.

 

Strapped with an eclectic mix of influences and training in entertainment, MOZIAH strives to use music to tell true stories that KNOCK.
