Zedd has another hit on his hands as the featured producer on Hailee Steinfeld and Grey's infectious track Starving. He sits down with me this week to discuss the very surprising reason he got into Djing, what it's like being a ghost producer for others (will he name names?) and why he thought he could make money in the music business. Zedd certainly is not your typical EDM Producer/DJ. Even though he’s a multi-platinum, Grammy award-winning artist, some may not realize the extent of his vast talent and experience. From early childhood music was a big part of his daily routine. Raised by two classically trained musicians, Zedd began playing piano when only four years old. At times, throughout his childhood he wrote a song a day. By the age of twelve he learned to play the drums, shortly after joined a hardcore/metal trio. As a pre-teen Zedd was composing and producing rock songs in his band's studio. Fast forward to today and Zedd’s gift of musicality, knowledge of various genres, instrumentation, production and composition has make Zedd the extraordinary artist he is. His song credits range from Producer, Composer, Vocals, Keyboards to Mixing, Mastering, Editing and Remixing. Just three days ago Zedd added the League of Legends World Championship theme song Ignite to his list of credits. Apparently not only gamers approve, as Ignite has over 6.5 million views on YouTube!
