Named one of WBUR’s ARTery 25 2021 changemakers of color, an Elliott Norton award winning actor and Hamilton College Posse alum, Kadahj Bennett is thrilled to have been a part of the ZUMIX family since 2003. A Luminary Artist at the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum and an Artist in Residence with the Freshman Arts Program at Harvard University, Kadahj is stoked to share his skills and insight as the Songwriting and Performance Manager. Thanks to classes like Street Program and Beatmakers, Kadahj gained the tools to empower his own music career. As frontman and writer for the Downbeat Keys, a brooklyn-based neon soul collective, Kadahj has toured California, the east coast college circuit and shared a bill with Bon Jovi at the Best Buy Center in Times Square and Future at the Uproxx House at SXSW. Kadahj continues to tell stories of empowerment through his art and hopes to provide the proper pathways for future generations to do so as well.
