L3 Magazine Presents: The Caribbean Queen Alison Hinds,
Jamaica’s Wayne Wonder, and Toronto’s Kid Famous!
Canada’s leading Caribbean-Urban online publication, L3 Magazine, has just released their November edition which sees the team connect fans and readers with The Caribbean Queen, Alison Hinds, Jamaica’s Wayne Wonder and Toronto’s Kid Famous.
Interviewed in Barbados, Alison Hinds opens up on the encouragement she received from her Mom regarding her music career, and also opens up on the passing of her Father and the importance of forgiving and letting go of past hurts. When speaking of the Soca industry, Alison shares that she is happy to see so many females stepping up and out and the fact that she would like to see more females in the business.
Quick Tease! What was the inspiration for Alison’s monster hit “Roll It Gyal” and how long did it take her to record it?! We have the answers!
Wayne Wonder is one of Jamaica’s most celebrated artists who scored hit records with “Saddest of My Life,” “No Letting Go” and “Bounce Along” among several other musical successes including a Grammy nomination and winning a BMI Songwriters Award. When we connected in Florida, the star told us about his creative process when making music, as well as his alter-ego Surprise. The artist also shares his views on the recording process today compared to when he first began in the business. This is an interview you don’t want to miss!
When it comes to the Road to Centre Stage, no one can tell you about the scenery and terrain en route more accurately than Toronto’s Kid Famous. We caught up with the Kid in Toronto and were impressed with the importance he places on his branding and marketing in addition to his music. As he says ‘your marketing speaks to your fans for you so you have to be careful what you use to represent you.’
The Kid talks success of the record “I Wanna Know Your Name” featuring Oh!, his upcoming series of mixtapes (one of which will be hosted by Hot 97’s DJ Kay Slay) as well as his signature cartoon created for the drop of his newest single with Melanie Durrant called “This Chick is Crazy” produced by Boi 1 Da. The Kid is taking the business of music and repping Toronto to a ‘whole nother level!’
L3’s star writer, Heike Wollenweber gives us a review on the Wynwood Art Fair in Miami, and also gives an update on the video launch for L.I.A.T.I.’s “Believe” on the Caribbean’s Tempo TV. Additional highlights in the November edition of L3 Magazine include Damian Jr. Gong Marley’s movement to Set Up Shop, Toronto’s rising Dancehall sensation Faze and his song “Juss Life Dat,” and Hemp Higher music in partnership with Inspired Records releases the Moonlight riddim.
