From singing background vocals on Caribbean hits and years of mentorship with music icon, Eddy Grant, to penning songs on international charts and having music in films, she understands what it is to have a calling, work hard with joy, and grow from strength to strength by grace. Barbados-born artiste, Indra softly stepped forward as a solo singer with refreshingly sweet, soulful vocals, acoustic originals and a unique percussive style.

She has sung at 5+star resorts, music festivals, weddings, an orphanage, a prison, and national parks. Indra has also coached several aspiring singers in the discipline of Voice, and served as Vocal Tutor for “Youth Achieving Results” programme, an initiative for unemployed youth.

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

The language fan attended M.I.D.E.M, S.X.S.W, W.O.M.E.X, W.S.I.S, and C.O.S.C.A.P‘s ‘Women In Music,’ seminar and was invited by HoneyJam Barbados to speak at songwriting workshops.

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.”

After enrolling in ‘Music Publishing 101’ with Berklee Online, Indra started a publishing business and secured placements in 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, freelances as a writer, coaches aspiring artists, offers seasonal nature walk tours sharing the natural beauty of Barbados, and is in the studio working on an EP.

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
