  • 2006
    Age 31
    Zender left Los Angeles in summer 2006 to become the musical director and bass guitar player for Mark Ronson.
    More Details Hide Details The release of the album Version in 2007 proved to be a larger success than first expected. Thanks to its success, he has performed with Ronson at numerous popular events such as "Radio 1's Big Weekend", "O2 Wireless at Hyde Park", "Global Gathering" and "Glastonbury", and festivals all over Europe including "Montreux Jazz Festival" in Switzerland and "North Sea Jazz Festival" in The Hague. They were also special guests on Jay-Z's UK tour. Zender now runs his own record label, "White Buffalo Recordings". Zender and Warwick have recently reunited to produce a Stuart Zender signature bass guitar. Zender began his career by playing Warwick bass guitars in 1993, when Jamiroquai was formed. Zender's distinctive style, one of the hallmarks of Jamiroquai's sound, created interest from other musicians in his equipment, which was later documented in media interviews. Zender then received an endorsement deal with Warwick and began collaborating with the company for several designs – notably, the Iroquai "rug" bass guitar, an all-white bass guitar with blue LEDs and a chrome "Ender" model. Some of the main bass guitars used by Zender include:
  • TWENTIES
  • 1998
    Age 23
    Zender left Jamiroquai in 1998 during the recording of their fourth album, Synkronized, because of conflicts with the lead singer Jay Kay.
    More Details Hide Details The circumstances behind his departure have never been fully revealed, but Zender explained that he felt that he and the other band members were not being credited for assisting in songwriting and producing. He also said that he resigned to spend more time with his budding family. Zender was replaced by Nick Fyffe, who had previously been in a Jamiroquai tribute band. Fyffe left in 2004 and was later replaced by Paul Turner in 2005. After Jamiroquai, Zender had his own project with the British soul artist, Don-E, called "AZUR" which signed a record deal with Virgin US. However, the project was shelved and was then available on the Internet for a short time. He has also worked with other artists, including All Saints, Omar, Lauryn Hill, D'Angelo, Gorillaz, Samuel Purdey, Ms. Dynamite and Stevie Wonder. He dated the singer Melanie Blatt of the former UK girl group All Saints. The two were together for seven years. They have one daughter, named Lilyella. Some of Zender's most recent work has been with his latest band "LEROI". They were signed to Geffen Records in Los Angeles. The deal fell through after the heads of the company, Polly Anthony and Jordan Shurr, who signed them, were made redundant.
