Artist Info

Mavis John

Mavis JohnData provided by DiscogsMavis John
Originally born in Clifton Hill, she relocated to Belmont and made a home here for many years. Hailed as one of Trinidad & Tobago’s most talented singer and songwriter
Becoming a teen idol throughout the 1960s and 70s. Mavis John would have a resurgence in the local music scene in the 1990s and 2000s.
While many of her contemporaries were seen to have often stayed within the Calypso and Soca genres, John lent her signature voice to works in the Blues, Jazz and Soul genres .
Though she devoted herself to her family and teaching career for many years before returning to music performance, she maintained her creative spark. Mavis John was an active thespian and singer, even starring in the play Shades of I-She, for which she won a 1996 Cacique Award. Her 2001 album, Mavis Sings, was met with wide critical acclaim, and as mentioned above, sparked a renewed public interest in her musical endeavours. Mavis has been consistently performing, locally, regionally and internationally. In June 2003 she appeared at the St. Kitts Music Festival sharing the stage with acclaimed international artists such as Ashanti, Shaggy, Jeffrey Osbourne and The Temptations.
