I am a 19 year old Caribbean artist who likes to experiment with different genres of music. This album is my debut album and each song is a fusion of genres such as R&B, Soul and jazz... and of course since I am Caribbean you can feel my roots in some.
I am an independent artist so there are no band members but there are people who aided me in the arrangement and organization of all my music for this album. In this album you can hear bass, acoustic guitar and at least two or three different types of pianos and drums.
I started singing in local school and church choirs at the age of 4 and I suppose that fueled the fire to become more! I have had a little classical (opera) vocal training and I have sung such songs as "Summertime", "Carmen (the English version)" and "climb every mountain".
I have also been in a number of musicals such as (please note that all mentioned are local versions of the plays) "Joseph and the amazing Technicolor dream coat", "Children of Eden", "Once upon an island" etc and in most of these plays I acquired leading or subtantial roles.
In the past I have won quite a few local talent contests and as a prize for one contest: CABLE AND WIRELESS'' "centre stage...the spotlight''s on you" contest, they offered an opportunity to create an album... and here it is!!!! My debut album entitled "Memories" and all the songs are originally written by me. I am just looking for a good way to promote it.
What inspires me to write is my experiences... that''s the reason my debut album is called "Memories" because all my songs evoke my "Memories" of my experiences... for example my friend and I were on a boat and we wrote a song about the sea.
I have released one single so far entitled "The Storm In Me" on local Caribbean radio stations such as " ZIZ in https://www.tradebit.comts", "heart beat radio in Anguilla (my home island) check the site at www . hbr1075 . com" etc.
My songs flow in the form of a story; the story of my last relationship: 1. I''m glad... that I found the one 2. Where did they go?... My troubles... because I was so sad before I met you, 3. I have "All the ''tions" assoiciated with loving you now and can''t imagine life without you, 4. The storm in me is raging because I am feeling that you don''t love me any more. 5. Don''t wanna be your friend because I love you too much, 6. Imagine I still love him...after so many years apart I still miss him, 7. I "Dream" in solace but inside I hurt because I can''t be with the one I dream about, 8. Sea song... Let the sea wash away your pain and make you forget everything you lost...
My repertoire is always expanding so even though I would rather sing soul, negro spirituals, classical music I can also sing calypso, Soca, jazz and R&B.
As I said I don''t have my own band yet but I sing with a local group called "Darvin And Company" Darvin is part of a group called "The Mussingtons".
Music is a feeling the artist wants to convey so I am of the belief that "there is no such thing as bad music".
I am very proud and glad to be making a small step in a good direction for my island. I am proud to be from where I am from and I hope to accomplish something that makes my country proud of me.
** Another album is in the process of being recorded... It''s all up beat music like Soca and R&B **
