Krosfyah on Fire

August 9, 2007

kfyahWITH their 2007 album, krosfyah are reminding Barbadians that they have been through the fire.And now, as they reach age 17, the eight-member band that copped the coveted Band Of The Year title at this year’s Barbados Music Awards is making the point with an album entitled Fireproof – filled with uptempo songs that are already heating up the airwaves for Crop-Over. Lead singer and Entertainer Of The Year Edwin Yearwood said the album represented the trials they had faced to reach this point.

“There are trials and tribulations we have gone through that people don’t even know about, but the people are enjoying our music, and that’s what’s important. We went through the fire, came out and have stood the test of time.

He noted that the main thing that kept the group focused was their love of soca music and people.

“We’ve always been there with the people and not above the people,” he added, noting that the six tunes dropped on local stations recently were designed to appeal to people across varying
age groups.

Edwin is offering the introspective Where I Want To Be and Feels Like Home, and Tony “Rebel” Bailey is singing All My Life, featuring TC; while the real party numbers for the youngsters are Bashment Bacchanal and Bumper Buffet by Khiomal, and Adrian
Duchin’s Impossible.

The last singer, Duchin, a new addition to the line-up, is formerly of the duo Times 2 which debuted at Crop-Over two years ago with Tic Toc.

“He promises a buffet of wines and grinds as he controversially asks, ‘Is it possible or impossible to be in love with two ladies at the same time?’,” say band members of the Guyanese-born Duchin.

In the meantime, Fireproof is ready to set Crop-Over 2007 on “fyah”.
