ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
BIOGRAPHY

William N. Lindsey a.k.a "Dr. Lumba"

Background:
Born in Montserrat, West Indies (British Oversees Territory). Grew up under firm Victorian concepts, which concentrated duty, discipline and devotion. Moved to the USA in 1987. A Professional Automotive Technician,
A Singer/Songwriter/Entertainer/Performing Artist.
Genre/ Influence:
One very influential medium for such an attraction to the art is the carnival seasons in Montserrat. During this time Masquerades (young men dressed up in pretty costumes) would dance all around the island to a traditional African type of music, which captivated much attention. Same time, as part of a Calypso King competition one (calypsonians) would have the chance to express their views, in song, to the different social, economical and political issues troubling the community, or merely as a humorous presentation (my favorite).
Always have been a comedian at heart, thus keeping people entertained at all times once appropriate and whenever possible. Have performed song and dance in public from a very early age, with self-choreographed dance styles, influenced by a combination of Caribbean, Latin and American beats. Having been raised in a religious household strictly prohibiting anything but gospel music, the outcome is surely clouded. Despite a few minute jukebox sessions when going to and from school, view this as natural.
Career Milestone:
Have supported various Calypso Monarchs on stage, namely Mighty Arrow of Montserrat, Mighty Short Shirt and Mighty Swallow of Antigua and Mighty Sparrow, Mighty Shadow and Singing Sandra of Trinidad. Showcased in several venues (clubs, boat-rides, church functions, school concerts and special occasions) and Carnivals all across USA, Canada, UK and the Caribbean.
Media exposure via WNET, channel 13 TV - "New Look" dance presentation in 2004. St. Thomas US Virgin Islands radio - Labor Day celebration in Marcus Garvey Park, NY in 2004. The Boston Globe - St. Patrick's Day celebration in Dorchester, MA. Radio interviews at ZJB - Montserrat, ABS & ZDK - Antigua, WLIB - NY and WILD - MA during the launching of self-produced Soca albums, Hype It Up in 2003 and Follow Me in 2004. Winner of Road-march Monarch for annual carnival festival, December 2002. Runner-up, Soca - Monarch 2003.
Forthcoming Gigs/Plans:
November 27, 2004- Live performance at Mini Sink Townhouse in Harlem (142 St. & Lenox Ave), Christmas parties. Production and release of CD # 3 and DVD. European tour, 2005.
