Kevon Carter is a Trinidadian singer, songwriter and musician. At a very young age, Carter realized his creative ability with music through play. His spontaneous compositions on the guitar highlighted an area of definite skill. At the age of 17, he left his home island and migrated to the United States. Observing the dynamic culture shock that is New York City, he embraced the change of environment and noted it as a ‘new’ chapter of his life. Carter defined himself as both a product of his West Indian roots and that of the New York melting pot in which he had instantly connected.
Carter’s sound can most accurately be described as that of ‘World Music’, a distinction based almost entirely on the blending of his cultural influences. The smooth melodic texture of his voice has the markings of his music mentors such as David Rudder, Bob Marley, John Lennon, Smokey Robinson, Michael Jackson and El Debarge.
His 2012 Groovy Soca single entitled ‘Celebrate Life’ which featured popular local artist Shal Marshall received a more than satisfactory amount of airplay and rave reviews. Apart from his many independent projects, Carter is now the Lead Vocalist for the Caribbean music band, Imij & Company.
Staying true to his craft, Carter is constantly working on new material, displaying his versatility through original compositions that draw its inspiration from his unique and intriguing personal experiences. Kevon Carter is excited to share his musical venture with the world one tune at a time.
