“His new album titled "Shade Red" is being hailed by fans for its refreshing sound, something Reggae has been missing for some time. His music is a jambalaya of Soul, Lover's Rock, Dancehall and Soca with a dash of creole to spice up the mix.”

“Zionomi is a young singer on the rise. The half-Italian, half-Creole Saint Lucian got his start as a Bob Marley devotee freestyling in the classroom for his school friends. Now, his music, which covers Lover’s Rock, Dancehall, Soca, and Kompa, is getting heard on radio stations around the globe. What sets Zionomi apart: heart, passion, and exuberance. Those qualities – collectively rendered as joy – radiate from his songs. You’ll find joy on full blast in today’s NORML Show Live Irie Wednesday track, “Roll Yuh” by Zionomi.”

"12 Tribes Rootz Wear is a new clothing line coming out soon from St.Lucia. It's a clothing line for conscious people ...St.Lucian artiste, Zionomi is in every ad campaign for the tees. Also expect a 12 Tribes - Zionomi t-shirt, inscribed "Being Just a Friend," which is Zionomi's 2008 hit on the Sunrise Riddim. In 2009, Zionomi returned with Bobby Bling, asking "Who R U?"

"The list of artistes to receive awards in the first ever St. Lucia Music Awards slated for February 29th was announced on Friday. A collection of local musicians, sponsors and news media gathered at the National Cultural Centre, to bring an end to weeks of anxiety. Co-producers of the event, Accela Marketing, Cultural Development Foundation, Hewanorra Musical Society and St. Lucia Association of Musicians and Performers were on hand to make the announcement."

"His music is contagious and has incessantly inundated the airwaves island wide, and with a musical career headed on a flight of success, Zionomi seems unstoppable."

"So Zionomi , one of St.Lucia's reggae stars has made his first video with his single on soca riddim which is the Boom Boom riddim "Who Are You" featuring Bobby Bling out of Jamaica. The video was directed by Paris Pixels company out of France. This was shot on location in St.Lucia during the St. Lucia Jazz Festival weekend."

"Lucian Vibe! Zionomi has released his newest and I believe first music video. The already well-known reggae artiste is rocking a fresh musical genre, let’s call it reggae-soca. It’s a captivating style, partly because its a refreshing change but also because the roots, the base, is so familiar."

"...The versatility of St Lucian acts spread, with performers like Zionomi, Trish, Cherry L, Kris Bailey, Shayne Ross and others offering everything from Reggae, Soul, Pop and R&B...."

"...a fund raising reggae concert was held Friday at Spinners. That concert headlined by Saint Lucia Music Award nominee for “Best New Artist” and one time Guinness Free Style Champion – Zionomi. His songs include, “Just a Friend” and “Come and Love Me.”

"I Love the Reggae Ride to Work on Friday mornings and was glad to learn you publish your playlists from the show! I really enjoy the variety of music you play..."

“In 2008, I first heard "Just a Friend" on the Sunrise riddim while on a boat ride. Then in 2009, I was so happy when Zionomi featuring Bobby Bling made a video for his then release, "Who R U,"”
