Shortly after his debut, he managed to secure six Golden Melody Awards nominations as well as the widely sought after Best New Artist title. With an industry buzz throughout Asia, ØZI launches his label/collective “Forbidden Paradise”, bridging his Mando-pop and Western musical background to introduce his next body of work: PEDESTAL. PEDESTAL is ØZI’s eight-track sophomore album, a project two years in the making as the singer-songwriter tirelessly hones in on his craft while in the limelight as one of the most promising rising Asian American artists in recent years. In this album, ØZI takes us on a tumultuous journey about love - from heartbreak to lust to romance. Packed with crossover genres such as Nu Metal and Alternative R&B and international features from Arin Ray and G.Soul, PEDESTAL proves the range that exists within ØZI’s musicality. This is also the first time the rising star is co-producing an album with American producer Ian Jeffrey Thomas, who most notably produced for artists such as Bryson Tiller, Kevin Gates, CL and Iann Dior, as he continues his mission to open the world to a forbidden paradise.
