Indra

From being the go-background vocalist on Caribbean hits to penning songs on international charts, launching a publishing business, and placing songs in indie films, Indra Denys understands what it is to have a calling, work hard, endure disappointments, and grow by grace.

The Barbados-born multilingual artiste softly stepped forward as a solo singer with sweet, soulful vocals, acoustic originals and a tropically percussive style. Her first 2 albums were produced by music icon and mentor, Eddy Grant, who describes her as “the best and most naturally gifted female artist to have arrived on the Caribbean scene.”

Indra has sung at 5+star resorts, music festivals, weddings, a prison concert, memorials, national parks, and for the children at Joshua House in Guyana.

With songs like, ‘For The Brave,’ ‘ John Doe,’ ‘It’s A New Day,’ and ‘Siempre Quedas,’ Indra’s music resonates with encouragement, perseverance and compassion.

The language fan was selected to attend M.I.D.E.M, S.X.S.W, W.O.M.E.X, W.S.I.S, and invited by HoneyJam Barbados to speak at songwriting workshops. She has coached aspiring singers, served as Vocal Tutor for “Youth Achieving Results” programme (an initiative for unemployed youth), and built a blog with readers from 24+ countries.

After enrolling in ‘Music Publishing 101’ with Berklee Online, Indra launched Island Moon Music and secured placements in award-winning indie films, ‘Once Upon A Time In Ichirouganaim‘ and ‘A Caribbean Dream.’ In 2012, her flagship (penned) song, ‘Sweet Jamaica,’ originally recorded by Mr. Vegas was re-made with him, Shaggy and Josey Wales, followed by an all-star Jamaican cast and again as ‘Sweet Lamoka‘ by Mtu Wangu Lamo from Kenya.

She is also featured on ‘Fly Away‘ album with reggae artist, songwriter and filmmaker, John Life, and the two released “Life & Love” album, produced by Benn_i from The Netherlands.

Indra Denys sings at milestone events, manages ‘Joywithin‘ blog and podcast, and is in the home studio recording vocals for upcoming releases.

Songwriting on the charts: #1 MTV Africa, #1 German reggae charts, #1 BBC 1Xtra, #5 U.K reggae charts, #5 David Rodigan's 'Hot Hits', #7 Billboard reggae and nominated as Best Inspirational/Gospel at the B.M.As


โ€œIn every department she ranks among the best there is, and I find no difficulty in sayingโ€ฆshe is the best and most naturally gifted female artist to have arrived on the Caribbean scene. Hopefully it wonโ€™t be too long before the rest of the world acknowledges that the same should be said for everywhere.โ€ โ€“ Eddy Grant (C.E.O.
