Desmond Zion Albert
Desmond Zion Albert or “Zion” was born in a small village located on the eastern side of the island of Dominica called La Plaine. It has a population of 1,288 and is considered the second-largest settlement in Saint Patrick Parish.
At the age of 16, while living in St. Croix U.S.V.I, he discovered a love for roots reggae music which he says is real roots music with meanings to life. With the help of some local producers he recorded his first album “United We Stand”. After that Zion moved to The United States when he was 18 years old.
In 2006, while recording at Bob Marley Studio in Jamaica, Alrick Thompson of Tuff Gong International approached him. With the support of his new friends, Zion gained new momentum to officially launch his musical career. In 2009, Thompson Productions had invited him to perform a successful tour with Joseph Israel and Ziggy Marley in Hawaii.
