WINE UP ON ME – ZOELAH
Zoelah Boyde is the sassy voice behind “Go Down Low”, an instant ladies anthem shooting straight up the charts in St. Vincent and the Grenadines.
Her steady climb to success was accelerated by winning the Best New Song competition in 2007 and 2008 at the recent Vincy Mas Carnival Launching where Zoelah successfully crushed the opposition and has not looked back since.
Zoelah hails from Campden Park, a suburb of the capital that is also home to former Vincy Soca Monarch and OECS Soca Monarch Bomani. She was just 17 when she began touring as a frontline vocalist with Signal. After contributing her crystal vocals to the mix for nearly two years, Zoelah set out on her own to release ‘In and Out’ for Vincy Mas 2003.
Next she would move to Tortola where she continued to sing. Zoelah returned to St. Vincent with a bang in 2006 where ‘Kicking Dust’ earned her a place in the Soca Monarch Finals. Dressed in white, and dancing up storm, no one could deny this was a talent to watch.
In 2007 Zoelah was number one in the Soca charts with “Go Down Low”. Her second carnival release ‘Fly Away’ perks the ears immediately due to a chorus line reminiscent of Kelly Clarkson’s Since You’ve Been Gone. But make no mistake, Zoelah’s sound is completely fresh.
“I want to keep Soca music cultural. When I hear a riddim, I start thinking about lyrics and melodies and real Caribbean party vibes.”
