I only just recently became introduced to Jez Dior when Jess Johnson of RTV sent me the video and mp3 for “Candles”, his first release and music video as a solo artist, and I was instantly impressed.
“Candles” is the first release from Jez Dior’s upcoming mixtape entitled Scarlett Sage. It was the first song recorded for the record and instantly picked as the first single. It contains a hook sampled from the Indie group Daughter. The video was shot earlier this year in San Francisco with director Stephen Mallet who won 1st place at the Los Angeles Movie Awards for the JMSN – Jameson video.
Watch the “Candles” video below and read a brief bio on Jez Dior.
Jez Dior is a Los Angeles based Hip-Hop artist. His upcoming mixtape Scarlett Sage will mark his first ever solo release. Being the son of 1970’s punk rocker Steve Dior – best friend of Sid Vicious and crafter of many Sex Pistols songs, he is no stranger to the music scene. He started creating songs at the age of 13 and has progressed immensely and matured as an artist. His idols range from Jim Morrison and Kurt Cobain to the likes of Kanye West. Family life hasn’t always been the easiest for him as many deaths and his father’s addiction tore his family apart. His music all relates back to real life situations and struggles. Only being 20 years old he still has a lot of time ahead of him to continue to grow as an artist and to be able to brand himself into rap superstardom.
