ABOUT FAY-ANN LYONS
Born in Point Fortin, Trinidad, Fay-Ann is the second generation of a Caribbean music dynasty. Daughter of “Lady Gypsy” and “Superblue,” this Caribbean Queen wears her crown well
Fay-Ann Lyons is a three-time Trinidad and Tobago Carnival Road March champion (2003, 2008, 2009) and the 2009 International Soca Monarch and International Groovy Soca Monarch champion. She created history (again) when she won the International Soca Monarch for the first time in 2009, as the first female to win the Power category, and the first individual (male or female) to win the Power, Groovy and People’s Choice awards on Fantastic Friday (aka Carnival Friday) during the finals of the competition which is held annually in Trinidad.
She also went on to win the Carnival Road March that year, becoming the first Soca artist to win that Soca ‘triplet’ of titles. She is the first (and only) woman to accomplish that feat while pregnant. Fay-Ann is the youngest solo artist (male or female), still actively recording, with multiple wins of the Carnival Road March crown.
