IN CASE YOU WANT TO KNOW MORE ABOUT WHO MISTA VYBE IS...
I’m a recording artist, songwriter, producer, all-around musician, entrepreneur and pioneer, born and raised in the twin-island Republic of Trinidad & Tobago in the Caribbean, who has been striving to take the music of my island and my region to higher heights for my entire adult life. I have had many solo hits, as well as several collaborations, and I have also written and produced many popular songs for other artists.
People always ask about my name…
“Mista Vybe” stems from an acronym I came up with early in my career. “V.Y.B.E.”, stands for what I essentially am: a “Versatile Young Black Entertainer”. The prefix “Mista” came about when one of my producers accidentally wrote my studio nickname on the cover of one of my singles. The song (“Ting 4 D Road”) became and overnight smash and in the process, V.Y.B.E. was re-born – as Mista Vybe
IF YOU LOVE CARIBBEAN MUSIC OR JUST GOOD MUSIC IN GENERAL, YOU PROBABLY KNOW MY WORK...
Most Caribbean Music fans are familiar with my smash Soca single "Ting 4 D Road".
French-Caribbean music lovers will definitely remember my Reggae/Dancehall/Pop duet “Joe Le Taxi” (with Sharlene Boodram) which was Number One in French Guyana, Martinique, Guadeloupe and various other French-speaking islands for an entire summer some years back.
I have also written (and/or co-written) major hits for many other artists like Nadia Batson’s “My Posse”, “Party” by Ms. Alysha Featuring FayAnn Lyons and Denise Belfon’s UK Pop/Club hit “Work”.
I'VE BEEN BLESSED WITH THE PRIVILEGE OF WORKING WITH AND/OR BEING TUTORED IN THE WAYS OF THE MUSIC BUSINESS BY MANY WORLD-FAMOUS NAMES...
Raphael Saadiq (and the rest of his former group Tony Toni Tone), Teddy Riley, Guy, Blackstreet, Steelie & Clevie, DJ Ali Shaheed Mohammed (of A Tribe Called Quest fame) and P. Diddy - among others - are just a few peop[le who I've either sat in on sessions with or worked alongside on various projects over the years.
Locally and regionally I’ve literally worked with almost every major name in the business, either as a writer or a backup singer, or in some cases sharing stages as an opening act.
From Calypso Icons like The Mighty Sparrow, Shadow Andre Tanker and David Rudder… to Dancehall/Reggae superstars like Buju Banton, Beres Hammond and Super Cat… and even some of my fellow young Soca sensations like Machel Montano, Shurwayne Winchester and Bunji Garlin… I have opened for, sung backup for, and/or performed onstage alongside the Best of the Best.
There’s so much more!!!
