Although carnival in Montserrat is no summer carnival but is celebrated between Christmas and New Year there are Soca-related news from the island’s 2005/06 Soca Monarch Scrappy.
The promissing son of the island, who also became Junior Calypso Monarch twice before he left Montserrat, currently resides in London where he is just about to release his third album â€žSoca Is Life”. And this only days after his second solo album â€žDreams Are Reality” became available at all major download stores like iTunes, Napster, Juno and many more, after signing contracts with Europe’s biggest Soca label Faluma Digital.
The young artist who just turned age 25 last week, is not only singing but is also writing and producing most of his tunes and runs his own production label called Danger 1 Productions. By being such an all-rounder Garvin â€žScrappy” Johnson qualified to be one of the fresh and upcoming artists distributed digitally by Faluma, beside many big names like Krosfyah, Mastamind, El-A-Kru and Madd.
