Bio

Tricia Lee Kelshall's career in music began at the tender age of 9, singing on a local talent show in Trinidad. After winning prizes for her work during her youth, at 19 she auditionned for a new band called Second Imij. Tricia became an icon in the Soca arena with her voice, talent and dynamic performances and was dubbed 'The Soca Diva.' Second Imij had incredible success and was called a 'Cinderella band' as it took off on world tours almost immediately. The music had an unusual, fresh sound, a fusion of Hip Hop and Soca. The band attracted an invitation by Disney productions to be part of their soundtrack for the hit movie 'Cool Runnings'. Playing iconic venues such as The Apollo Theatre and touring extensively throughout the Caribbean, North America and Europe, Second Imij went on to win several prestigious awards and gathered an extensive international fanbase. These concerts gave Tricia a real feel for working at he highest level and gained her some rave reviews in the media. Tricia moved to London and underwent extensive vocal training. She randomly bumbed into Jody Wisternoff from Way Out West and ultimately ended up performing the now well-known 'Mindcircus' from the successful 'Intensify' album. The song went to number 1 in the UK dance charts, number 15 in the US dance charts and Number 39 in the UK Top Forty. 'Mindcircus has been a favourite for DJs' record boxes and has been ever-present on dancefloors across the globe. Tricia was the vocalist on the band's world tour 'Way Out West Live'. Tricia has also done two world tours with the Stereo MCs as a vocalist. After taking a break, Tricia is now back in the studio, working on projects with some awesome dance music producers and DJs. There are several forthcoming releases due for the second half of 2009. Tricia readily invites new opportunities and is interested in working with talented producers. We hope that quality artists recognise Tricia's talent and are prepared for mutual success.
