From a very young age ZJ began developing a strong appreciation for music, as the radio, records, cassette tapes and music videos played consistently in his boyhood home. He names Bob Marley, Peter Tosh, Burning Spear, Steel Pulse, Super Cat, The Mighty Sparrow, Lord Kitchener, Marvin Gay, Curtis Mayfield, Michael Jackson, Prince, The Police, The Eagles, Peter Gabriel, Phil Collins, Steve Winwood, Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Stone Temple Pilots, KRS-One, Public Enemy, and A Tribe Called Quest, as part of an eclectic, but by no means exhaustible list of musical influences.

Throughout his musical career, Zion Judah has collaborated with industry veterans such as, the late Ewart Wilson, Jr. (Producer/Engineer - John Legend, Spin Doctors, Freedom Williams, Rockell, Wu Tang Clan, Method Man, Red Man, DW Coop, De La Soul, Dan Wallace, Khari Kill, Jah Bami, Beanie Man, Patra, Tyrese, Joe, Zhane); Bill Donnelly (Producer/Engineer - Laughing Dog Studios, Spin Doctors); Joe Shavel (Touring Guitarist/Music Instructor - No Doubt); as well as Paul Guzzone (Producer/Engineer/Touring Guitarist/Music Professor - Triple Z Music, The Bacon Brothers, Pace University).
Since 2014 (via his production/publishing entity - "JR GANDHI MUSIC") he has signed numerous licensing/publishing deals for his growing music catalog with, Music of the Sea, Hollywoodtraxs, Mach1 Entertainment, and Perpetual Music Group, to name a few. Additionally, his songs, "Divine Creation" (title track), and "Positive Energy,"from his 2004 debut album (co-produced with E.
