The Line Up 2012

Shayne Ross

Writer & Vocalist

With a smooth, sexy voice, good looks and dynamite personality, it's no surprise that Shayne Ross is gaining fans and widespread attention. Hailing from the east coast community of Mon Repos on the Caribbean island of St Lucia, this singer/songwriter/ producer has grown up immersed in the sweet sounds of calypso music, rhythm & blues, hip-hop, reggae and dancehall. All of these genres have influenced his music and the sound that he creates today.

His first public foray into the music industry was at the age of ten when he wrote his own calypso song for a school's talent competition. From that moment on, Shayne has gone full speed ahead with his love of music and started writing songs religiously. His first release, a hip-hop track, 'Leave Me Alone' recorded at the Heights Music Studio, proved that he had the stuff to rule the airwaves.

In 2006, the singer showed that he had full command of rhythm & blues when he released the sexy single 'Naked' that had female fans screaming and begging for more. With 'Take You Home', Shayne cemented the fact that he was hot property and could sing or rap like the best of them. Many are now calling him St Lucia's John Legend.

In addition to singing and writing his own music, Shayne produces many hot tracks including 'Breed' for St Lucian performer Cherry L. He has collaborated with the best local producers including Sherwin 'Dupes' Brice and Francis 'Leebo' Delima on his music. In the July/August issue of SHE Caribbean Magazine, Shayne was named as the 'One to Watch' in the Caribbean's music industry.

Shayne has opened up for acts such as Jamaican superstars Voicemail, and has performed at the St. Lucia Jazz Festival 'Jazz on The Square'. It is only a matter of time for this sexy singer to become the main act. With his music, Shayne wants 'to keep on expressing himself and give people something that they can relate to, that they can groove to and to create music that lasts forever'.
