No. 4 up and coming female soca artist: Megan Walrond (Trinidad and Tobago)

 

4. Megan Walrond (Trinidad and Tobago)
 

Megan Walrond, frontline singer of the all-female band SASS, started her musical journey at the tender age of eight.

Her appearance in the Nors Calypso Pioneer Competition in Trinidad and Tobago that year afforded her a second place spot in the competition and invaluable recognition throughout the twin island republic.

In 2008 and again in 2009, Megan copped the top spot at the National Junior Calypso Monarch Competition before venturing into the soca industry.

Her 2013 hit, Fete Forever on the Wonda Woman riddim, is still popular throughout the Caribbean. She added to her repertoire with another hit, Riddim, in 2014.

Unlike many others, Megan manages to easily slip in and out of musical genres that range from Reggae and House to Country and Western.

In 2008, Megan represented Trinidad and Tobago at the World Champions of Performing Arts held in Los Angeles where she was named Country and Western Champion of the World.

With the support of band mates Nadia Batson and Terri Lyons, Megan Walrond is set to continue to rise to the top of the Caribbean soca industry.
