Kadri Walcott was born June 02, 1980 in Barbados West Indies. At the age of 16 He wrote what then became a popular soca hit “Bus Ride,” for the popular Double Xplojun band earning him his first title as a songwriter.

Kadri worked as the Teacher, Police Constable and Web Designer/Developer.

Local politician Mia Amor Mottley, QC, MP introduced the young singer to Producer Nicholas Branker.

Kadri’s Official debut performance as a Dancehall/Rock Artist was at the Rock The Rock 2012 Rock Concert held in Barbados on November 10th 2012, where he performed his first single “Trapped In The Underground.” There he shared the stage with local and international acts such as Cover Drive, Nexcyx, Kite, Threads of Scarlet, Psilos, Vanna Vee, Farouk Jr. and many more.

On Jan 31st 2014, Kadri released his first official debut dancehall single “Flex Reality,” Recorded, Produced & Mixed by Minim at RFM Music Inc. Zurishanaje Studios, Holders Hill, Barbados.
