“My music is about the people, not me” is how the once dubbed “Party Vocalist of the Year” describes his calling. Nigel Lewis, singer, songwriter and producer became a household name when he swept the Caribbean scene with his first hit “Movin” in 1996. He achieved the highest musical honor in Trinidad by becoming that year’s Road March King. The following year Nigel’s mega hit “Follow Da Leader” planted a seed that’s still growing in 2006 with over 400,000 copies sold.

Born on the island of Tobago, Nigel’s musical roots came from his father who was a jazz bassist and his mother who was an international dancer. Since the tender age of seven, Nigel sought refuge from his security blanket called “music” where he draws from his personal triumphs as well as his tragedies.

Nigel’s main source of inspiration comes from his relationship with God. “As musicians we have access to millions of ears which is something I never take for granted. I figured as long as I’m entertaining, I have a chance to touch hearts. That’s why I often choose lyrical content that can introduce the world to the ways of Jesus.”

Nigel has also developed into a remarkable songwriter and producer. With no formal education, Lewis taught himself how to play six instruments which lends itself useful when leading his band. While his dynamic live performances have captivated audiences worldwide, his conscience level music gives listeners food for the soul. Nigel has always been willing to be the voice of the people. At the age of fourteen, Nigel wrote and sang a song to his Prime Minister addressing the poor living conditions in his former home of Toco. A week later, the poverty stricken town saw improvements.

Today, Nigel’s dedication to speaking for the unheard is made evident through the lyrics of “Unlock the Block” the theme song for the Felon Disenfranchisement campaign. Whether he’s addressing voting rights, world peace, or spiritual awareness, Nigel enthralls audiences of all ages.

Nigel’s seventh album “Unlock The Block” showcases his talent as a singer, songwriter and producer. It is sure to make a significant impact on the music scene in 2007.
