Alison Hinds (born 1 June 1970) is a female soca artist from the Caribbean island of Barbados. She is one of the most popular soca singers in the world and has unofficially been given the nickname the “Queen of Soca”. She has produced many popular songs that top charts even in countries which do not widely listen to soca.
In 1986, Hinds joined the soca band Square One. At first this band performed mostly in bars and clubs, but later they became a top Soca band, bringing soca to a new level. Alison produced her first hit in the year 1996, “Ragamuffin”. That song made her win road march of that year for Kadooment (Barbados’ Carnival). The following year she repeated road march and also won The Party Monarch with another hit “Twister”. Alison was the first woman to ever win these titles in Barbados. This led to Hinds’ role as the lead singer in the band. Next, Square One created an album called “Full Bloom”. This album took over the Caribbean. It included the song “Faluma”, which was the top song in the Caribbean for the period of 1999-2000. It toped the charts of Guatemala for 49 weeks. It was during this period that Hinds’ popularity grew. Square One continued to produce hits until 2004 when it broke up – partly due to Hinds’ departure.
Currently Alison Hinds lives with her family, husband Edward Walcott and daughter Saharan (born May 5th, 2004), on a horse farm in Barbados. She has her own band, “The Alison Hinds Show”. This band was formed in 2005 when Hinds returned to the soca scene with the hit song “Roll It Gal” which is an anthem for young women and encourages them to have pride in themselves. In 2006 the song was still popular. Hinds is the main singer and most of the members of the band are young dancers and musicians. She also produced a song called “Love Affair”. Since she returned to music she has recorded a collaboration with Machel Montano for the the remix of “Roll It Gal”.
KI (Kris Veeshal Persad,) is a most talented, effervescent, and promising crossover artiste, who has proved that he can compete with the best in the Soca and Chutney business. His professional and affable demeanor as well as his ability to blend his talents as a band leader, musician and singer providing top class entertainment certainly is an inspiration to young people and to those up and coming artistes.
Son of Trinidad’s established keyboardist, band leader, & producer Veerendra Persad, KI started his entertainment career as a keyboardist at the tender at age 7. He competed and won the very first “Children of Mastana” competition and shortly thereafter migrated to Canada where he spent his formative years concentrating on his Academics and Studying Music. KI continued to display his commitment and dedication to the band and was given the opportunity to be lead musician and producer for JMC 3veni. He used this experience to produce the band’s last 5 albums, and collaborated with Madmen Productions in producing the massive hit “In Front Of Meh” by Umi Marcano, formally of Machel Montano’s “HD.”
Entering the Chutney Soca Monarch for the first time in 2010, KI placed 4th with the successful hit “Catch Meh Lovah (Sunita & Nadia)”. This year, his scintillating performance at the 2011 Chutney Soca Monarch Competition saw him place 3rd with his song “No More Rum Again” with over 10,000 votes. He has since then became the most requested Crossover Artist at Major festivals/carnivals worldwide.
2011 has proven to be a record breaking year for KI, as he was asked to be the opening act for Machel Montano’s Return Concert in Manhattan, New York. He thus became the first ever Crossover Artist out of Trinidad & Tobago to perform at the world renowned Madison Square Garden alongside his band Jmc 3veni. In December of 2011, he received a National Award for Chutney Soca in Trinidad & Tobago, endorsed by President George Maxwell Richrds. KI now continues to tour throughout the Caribbean, North & South America, and Europe, promoting the fantastic music and culture of Trinidad & Tobago.
