Island Weekend Feature: Vincy Marshall


The young member of the Vykins Band made his mark this Carnival Season with his hit  ‘Faith’ and another catchy track ‘Wine’. His performance of ‘Faith’ at the national Ragga Soca Monarch was commendable, as he held his own on the big stage among the  veterans. He also impressed patrons at quite a few other big shows; Soca Swing, Soca on the Beach and New Song Competition.

The Vincy Marshall shows much promise. Island Weekend caught up with the rising artist at JR Music Studio, his home base, where he gave us a glimpse of who Vincy Marshall is. Catch the interview below.
