Toronto based singer, songwriter and producer Jozem has revealed his stunning new single, the introspective and poetic ‘Youth’ which shines a light on the learnings taken from his past experiences. Leading up to his debut album it came to me in dream, Jozem has been gently peeling back the layers, piece by piece, delicately revealing not only more of his talents and artistry but also segments of his soul which are deeply embedded in everything Jozem creates.
Jozem uses his music as a means of communication and contemplation, helping him understand and uncover more of himself, his thoughts, his ideas, his beliefs, alongside past and future versions of himself. By doing so, he also allows his listeners to do the same, inviting them to ponder and to connect with themselves on a deeper, more profound level. It’s a well known phenomena that music is healing mentally and physically. It often helps us process our emotions and in some cases our human experience. Put simply, Jozem writes music that speaks to your very soul.
“Youth is about walking in one’s own truth, a celebration of being different, of marching to the beat of your own drum in a world that oftentimes will not acknowledge or understand you. It is about struggling to, but ultimately finding one’s voice and choosing to use it whether it falls on deaf ears or not. It is in honour of all those kindred souls who helped mould us, some who we have unfortunately lost along the way.”
