Farmer Nappy Recruits Sweet-Voice Bajan Singer, Damian Marvay

24 Sep


New artiste alert! The carnival bug seems to be biting really hard. In fact, seems like new artistes are popping up from every corner of the Caribbean, every day. Barbados is home to the latest soca newbie and with a brand new single called, “Survive The Weekend”, Damian Marvay’s hoping that this will be his lucky break.

The Barbados born singer/songwriter/performer is dubbed a “full package”, with his public relations team assuring that he’s got the talent, personality and charisma to fit seamlessly into T&T’s carnival arena. Mavay has, in the past, lent vocals as background to several artistes, among them, Bunji Garlin, Rupee, Fadda Fox and Farmer Nappy. His breakthrough on the soca circuit during Cropover 2015 was said to be well-received with the single, “Survive The Weekend” being lapped up by many.

The song was produced by De Red Boyz – the infamous Bajan soca production outfit that has made Farmer Nappy the groovy soca hit maker he is, no doubt. Marvay’s team says background vocals done for Nappy by him, immediately impressed Scott Galt of De Red Boyz and the conversations that followed led to the recording of “Survive The Weekend.”

ETCETERABUZZ has learnt that already the song title and various lines have become popular hashtags. It’s also been used for two different advertising campaigns in Barbados during the Crop Over season. Added to that Marvay  was recruited by Farmer Nappy to form part of his band, which includes De Red Boyz.

In the past few months, the up and comer has been traveling with Farmer, performing on stages in various territories. He says the experience has been humbling and notes that the highlight so far was his debut in Canada for Virgin Mobile’s Indie Fridays finale in Toronto.

Now, Marvay is officially under Farmer’s Management Company ‘Country Life Entertainment’ and is working on new material for release in the coming months so guess what!? Seems like by all accounts, Damian Marvay will be chilling in T&T for Carnival 2016! Get familiar!
