He had a musical ear at the tender age of 11. His late father (Hilary Zarsadias) taught him to play the guitar and he learnt to play the keyboards thereafter only by ear.

His biggest influences are internationally acclaimed American artists – Michael Jackson, Babyface, Stevie Wonder, High-Five, Boyz II Men, Vanilla Ice, Jazzy Jeff & the Fresh Prince, Jon B and more.
