Soca Artist Kevin Lyttle Makes Big Move to BMI

Posted in News on March 3, 2005
Soca artist Kevin Lyttle dropped by the BMI New York office recently to sign up for performing rights representation. His #1 international single "Turn Me On," recorded in a local studio on his native island of St. Vincent, took home the prestigious Boomshot Award for excellence in Caribbean music at last year's Vibe Awards. The Atlantic Records recording artist is considered one of the biggest soca artists to emerge from the Caribbean in 20 years.

His eclectic and innovative fusion of traditional soca, American R&B, and Jamaican dancehall has boomed across dance floors worldwide in a phenomenal two-year run. The 26-year-old singer, whose self-titled debut is certified Gold in the US, co-wrote nearly all the songs on the album, which includes special guest appearances by Spragga Benz and Assasin.
