He may have started off singing parang as a pre-teen, but at 22, Trinidad and Tobago’s Tyrel Ross is delivering island pop- a genre saturated with that fresh Caribbean vibe that the world just can’t seem to get enough of. If you’ve never heard about Tyrel, here’s what you should know :

Tyrel’s studying International Transportation and Trade at Suny Maritime College in New York but he’s presently at home in Trinidad until the end of August when he’ll return to continue his studies. His passion for music just cannot be overlooked however, and he told EBUZZTT that he’s received a lot of support from his step-father in the pursuit of his musical ambitions. His mother, he says, keeps him driven academically and for that, he is tremendously grateful.

The release of his brand new single, ‘This Girl is Hot’, complete with a video that’s already uploaded to YouTube, boasts a message that’s much bigger than what’s shared on the surface level. “For me personally, the song’s hook, ‘this girl is hot’, stands for a lot more than physical beauty. I want women to understand that hot doesn’t just mean their physical makeup, but their mind, their attitude, their vibe, their flair, the way they carry themselves,” he said, encouraging females to believe in themselves. “No matter how you think others perceive you, that shouldn’t really matter. You should know that no matter what, you are beautiful ; you were made beautiful. Just believe in yourself and you”ll be just fine.”

A former Holy Cross College student, Tyrel plays the guitar and says he wants to learn the piano. He has a great appreciation for music and it shows in the quality of what he delivers. The new track, which was produced at Dan Borgers Studios in Toronto Canada was co-written by Jenna Nation Music out of Toronto and Ross himself. “I worked with Dan Borgers and Jenna Nation on my previous release and I really enjoyed that experience so we did it again,” he said. Already, Tyrel says he’s been receiving a lot of good feedback on the new release, explaining that while at home in Trinidad and Tobago, the urban market facilitates mostly Soca and Dancehall music, he feels there’s a growing appreciation for Island Pop. “I’ve been influenced musically by many of our local artistes. I love what Kalpee’s been doing musically and it’s good to see how far he’s reached,” said Tyrel, noting that Kees and Voice are two other favourites of his. “Internationally, I love all kinds of musical genres really. From John Legend to Chronixx, Hood Celebrity, Koffee, Ed Sheran ; once the music sounding good, I’m vibin’ to it..”

Island Lime Magazine Set to Take Caribbean Energy to Global Heights.

Both hard copy and digital, IslandLime Magazine’s on a mission. In the ever-expanding world that we now occupy, efforts continue to share the most authentic Caribbean energy, with everyone outside the Diaspora. It’s not a new idea but the man behind it has all the gumption it takes to make it make sense.

Simon Baptiste believes in the Caribbean potential.

Simon Baptiste says his team’s vision is to create a global platform that allows for the stories of Caribbean creators and creatives, to be shared with people around the world – people who are anxious to discover more about the heartbeat of the region. “Although we recognize the importance of what goes on within our region, there are also hundreds of tales – fiction and non fiction, being crafted by islanders in territories that stretch from North America ti Australia,” he said in a recent Ebuzztt chat. “It’s our job to reveal the players and the art.”

The magazine’s official launch took place on July 4th in Port- of- Spain, Trinidad and featured performances by Key DeVere and John G. In the aftermath of the launch, Simon issued a statement, thanking folks who came out in support. He explained that the rationale behind delivering the project now, lies in understanding that we – the Caribbean people, built nations. “A chain of over 700 islands, encompassing 1,063,000 square miles, has produced incomparable talent- people who have left and continue to leave an indelible mark on art, fashion, music, literature, entertainment, sports, science and technology,” he wrote. Baptiste praised his people, adding, “From Capitol Hill, to working spaces in Nairobi, to the offices of an advertising agency, Down Under, you’ll find someone who has island roots, and spreads the philosophy of what makes the Caribbean and its people so unbelievably spectacular.”
