Dr. Jay de Soca Prince

Born in Toronto and raised in the Trinidadian culture, Dr. Jay de Soca Prince comes from a musically gifted family; his father is a drummer and vocalist, his uncle a founding member of the legendary group, Tradewinds. He grew up with parents who were always first in the record store for the latest calypso/soca records. When he was old enough, he made sure to continue this practice by getting a job in a record store just so he could afford his growing addiction to music. Although he has cultivated a large following and has been instrumental in creating the soca scene in Toronto, Dr. Jay de Soca Prince is not content to conquer just his hometown. He has travelled the world acting as an ambassador for soca to places in England, all over Canada and the U.S. and Australia.
