“Getting Older” is Z-Major’s latest single. A song that also means so much to him. His mother got him started playing piano at a very young age, which is the fuel for his love and passion for music. Unfortunately, his mother passed away in March of 2014. Which is also the reason he decided to release this single in March five years later.

The music video takes you through the story of Z-Major as a child growing up with a very ill but loving mother. The video even throws in real clips of him and his mother from old home videos. He dedicates this song to his guardian angel, Denise Koclanes.
