Tipped by many as one of the most exciting new players on the Australian hip-hop scene, 23-year-old Ziggy Ramo’s trajectory continues to move in an upwards direction. After recently spending a month in LA writing and recording with artists, including his biggest new fan Kehlani, Ziggy has just been added to the recently announced Splendour in the Grass line up.
His latest single “A to Z” sees Ziggy campaigning as fiercely as he does for any topic he writes about – this track shows another side of his multifaceted nature, but one that is by no means any less passionate.
He explains it for us.
“This track began when I had a big studio session booked around a year ago. What I didn’t realise, because I’m useless, was that it landed on the day I first met my partner and I had double booked our anniversary. My partner, being the most understanding and supportive person on earth, insisted that I keep the studio booking.
Once I got in there, all I could think about was love and how important our relationships are – and when you’re not concerned with one special day because every day is special. I suppose this song is about how powerful it is when someone lets you into their world, where you share everything from A to Z.
I’ve also learnt that writing a love song can be a pretty good substitute for flowers when you’re broke and need to make an apology!”
See what we mean? By no means any less passionate. Ziggy is set to take his new track around the country this June ahead of his debut appearance at Splendour in the Grass.
