Real name Stephan Abraham, the Chaguanas-born writer, artiste and entrepreneur is among a new movement of musicians with Trinidadian roots and ties to unite with the purpose of taking the music of this land to new markets across North America. New York-based acts Mysta Lyon, Lyrikal, Ronnie Homer, Chai and Fire Empress also a part form of a new wave of soca ambassadors in the US.
“Every day soca music is reaching virgin ears here in the USA and that’s a testament of the non-stop promotion and hard work of several of the artistes based here in New York. For us there is no season for soca. We play, perform and promote soca music 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year,” said the passionate performer about the blooming soca scene in the Big Apple.
Kuttit, who left Trinidad as a teenager, has already toured across the US performing in: Miami, Hollywood, Washington DC, Baltimore and Atlanta . He plans to take his music to new destinations in 2017 with the release of his third studio album: Respect My Vice.
His first single off that album “Waist Loose” on the hit making Breaking Dawn Riddim is already a runaway success across the soca diaspora, after enjoying a massively successful debut at Miami Carnival earlier this month.
“I am humbled by the tremendous amount love the track is receiving. Ah mean the riddim done gone already and there’s no doubt it’s going to run straight into the big festival: Trinidad Carnival. Its proof that the hard work we are doing is not going unnoticed, people are seeing how passionate we are about sharing our culture with the world,” said the talented entertainer, who has penned tracks for Machel Montano, Farmer Nappy and Mastermind.
Kuttit has also pioneered the very popular Soca, Sex & Alcohol apparel line. His tee-shirts, shirts, hats and accessories are all designed to tie back to Trinidad and Tobago in general and soca music in particular.
“The line has been so well received we are almost always in a back log for stock. And it’s not just the diaspora that is demanding our product. We have Americans of all ethnic backgrounds rocking the soca brand, it’s a beautiful sight when you walk into a department store and see a middle age white lady in soca tee-shirt,” he said with a great chuckle.
