All Around The World – Zan
Joel Levi Feveck aka Zan, is a multi talented young man, well recognised in the music fraternity for his song writing skills and vocal ability to perform in various genres. Growing up in the twin island of Trinidad and Tobago his love for music grew from childhood. He was groomed as a young boy in voice training by his mother and so from a very early age the foundation of his talent was well nurtured.
In 1998, at the age of 16 his career started in the music group “Relativity”. Their appearances ranged from concerts and model shows to other types of ceremonies, where they performed the national anthem, ballads, calypsos, and such. After graduating high school in 2000, Zan moved on in search of new opportunities. The group “Fusion,” was formed with childhood friend Keron Boodoosingh. Out of this came the comical tune “Doubles,” which was a well received collaboration by the two.
As a songwriter, his talent speaks for itself and will continue to do so. His joy and pleasure stems from his ability to capture in song, the soul of life and on the other hand the satire of everyday trials and tribulations. This is exhibited in his writings of groovy Soca, ballads and the undefined. This songwriter has composed:”Can’t Wait” sang by H2O Flow, “Energy” sang by Tony Prescott & Surface, “Love Somebody” and “Wine and Bend Over” sung by Destra and Shal respectively.
In 2005, the hit song “Watching Woman” produced by Chinese Laundry was a hit track on the number 1 radio station’s Soca Switch. Zan also wrote “Heart of a Man” which he did in collaboration with Machel Montano. His peers were not surprised when he followed up by writing “Always Be” commonly known as “Have You Ever Been in Love.” This was produced as a duet, which he sang alongside Patrice Roberts.
Other recognized accomplishments for the artist include the winning of Pan Song of the year for 2006 “Colors Again” and the second place winner in the Groovy Soca Monarch competition with his collaboration song “Always Be” sang as a duet with Patrice Roberts. The year 2006 was a phenomenal one in his life as it heightened his personal satisfaction and public recognition, and he now continues to go from strength to strength.
