Aruba Red named after a female Caribbean pirate legend, this fresh and rebellious songstress, whose style falls somewhere in between MIA and Finley Quaye, has already achieved seriously impressive heights as an independent artist.
Aruba Red was featured by iTunes in their ‘Best of’ category, reaching top 10 playlist on Jamaica's biggest radio station with 'Struggling' featuring Jah Mason, being selected by BBC Radio 1 as ‘Hottest Homegrown’ and chosen as ‘Alternative Jam’ on BBC 1Xtra.
She has collaborated with the award winning Nitin Sawhney and the legendary Mad Professor, toured with Natty, Fat Freddy's Drop and opened for Soul II Soul at Wembley Arena. With residencies at London's Royal Festival Hall and Roundhouse, hosting her own stage at the Big Chill Festival and founding the capital's hottest new live music night 'Strange Brew', Aruba Red has rocked audiences with her fiery set and provocative lyrics.
Recently headlining the sell-out Emerging Proms Festival and soon to be releasing her forthcoming debut smash 'Light Up Light Up' with Jah Cure, there seems to be no stopping this unique trail blazer. Look out for her soon to be released acoustic EP ‘Aruba Red Live & Unplugged’ which she will be promoting with an 9 date UK tour this June.
