can relate to and love to sing.” - Voice
Trinidad and Tobago.
Trinidad’s youngest ever International Soca Monarch King
and his impressive career continues . . .
Born December 26th, 1992, Aaron’s musical
journey began at the age of 16. From then to
now, he has amassed an impressive array of
titles in his career.
His first big break came in the form of the
Synergy Soca Star competition, in which he
placed second with the crowd-favourite song
“Alien.” He wasted no time in building on that
success. He joined the writing group Full
Blown Entertainment, where he wrote and co-
wrote four consecutive Soca Monarch winning
songs, quickly establishing himself as one of
the best writers in the industry.
Again, driven by his passion for success,
in 2016, he decided to take part in the
International Soca Monarch competition as
a performer. He won that competition and
became the youngest ever International
Soca Monarch King. This title only served to
fuel his ambition.
Aaron followed up his self-written, title-
winning song “Cheers to Life” with another
smash hit “Get Away” which featured the
world famous EDM group Bad Royale from
California. This song certainly showed Aaron’s
versatility. “Get Away” turned out to be a hit
and now has 2.5 million views on YouTube.
Following this song and in preparation for
Trinidad and Tobago Carnival 2017, Aaron
released yet another hit song called “Far from
Finished.” In two months, this song gained
over 1 million views on YouTube.
Aaron decided to defend his International
Soca Monarch title, performing his new
runaway hit. This proved to be a historic night
as he joined the ranks of greats like Superblue,
Ronnie McIntosh, Bunji Garlin, Iwer George
and Machel Montano as the only people to
ever win back to back International Soca
As the 2018 Carnival season approached Voice
would, almost instinctively, deliver yet another crowd
favourite when he collaborated with Marge Blackman
on the song “Full of Vibe.” This song would go on to
amass over 4 million views on YouTube. Refusing to
rest on his laurels having one hit song, he would
follow up one month later with what turned out to be
the unofficial theme song for 2018, “Year for Love.” In
addition to being viewed on YouTube over 3 million
times, this song was selected as his tune of
choice to enter both the Soca Monarch and Calypso
Monarch competitions. He would go on to win Soca
Monarch for the 3rd consecutive year and in his first
attempt, claim 2nd prize in the Calypso Monarch
Aaron continues to create history and is well on his
way to becoming a global superstar, yet he maintains
the same humble demeanour. In his words, “I just want
to make music that people can relate to and love to sing.”
He’s achieved his goal so far and all signs indicate he
will continue to do just that!
