Voice promises new music soon

Aaron ‘Voice’ St. Louis is staying true to his own lyrics and moving full steam ahead, after retaining his International Soca Monarch title in February with his hit song "Far From Finished”.

Thousands ventured to Pirates Cove, Daiquiri Beach last night to see Voice on stage as one of the headline acts at Gimme Soca – Bacchanal on The Beach.

The crowd greeted him with loud screams and cheers at the start of his near 20-minute performance and speaking to Loop News afterwards, an appreciative Voice likened Barbados to a second home.  

“Every time I come, it's just an amazing experience… the beaches, the people – especially the crowd response from the people. They're really into the songs and I appreciate that. I give thanks to everybody for all the love and support in Barbados.”

Soaking up the Bajan vibes, Voice told Loop, "There is crazy music and amazing talent in Barbados… I respect them for what they're doing. Everybody is in their own different group, their own different category. You have the vocalists like Marvay, the mash-up men like Stiffy, party men like Peter Ram and King Bubba. The whole Barbados group – it’s a blessing to be around them and feed off of their talent as well."

He revealed that Barbados can expect to see more of him, sharing, “I will be definitely performing at Crop Over and I will be on the road!"

With Toronto being the location of his next gig before heading to Jamaica Carnival, right now, Voice is focused on touring as well as making new music.

"I've been working on a summer song for Trinidad and Tobago – something similar to Get Away that I released last year. Hopefully it should be released by May," he told Loop.

He also divulged plans for a collaboration with T&T Road March kings, Ultimate Rejects.

According to Voice, he is living the dream:

"It’s just like a dream come true. Sometimes I just wake up in the morning and I'm like ‘Is this real? This can't be happening right now’ because of the things I came from, the life I came I give thanks to God for giving me the talent and ability to sing and write music and also to inspire a lot of the younger ones."

As he continues on his journey, the young ‘Winner’ says he intends to "release good music, relatable music and keep inspiring younger ones!"
