Your story
Began playing the guitar at age 14. In 1976, together with friends, formed the very popular five-member group ... .Colonel & Company, in which he was the lead singer and rhythm guitarist. After the group disbanded, Nigel wrote and produced jingles for the local advertising market. One of the jingles he sang by Mark Fojo and Simon Galt was nominated at the International CLIO Awards in 1979.

In 1985 I have joined the very popular rock band 'Touchdown' as lead singer and rocked the town to the next generation.


In 1987 Nigel was presented with an Appreciation Plaque from the National Association for Down syndrome Children for his contribution "So Lovely, So Beautiful", a song he wrote and performed on many occasions to help raise funds for the Special Children. 

In 1987, he wrote and performed solo, a song titled "A Waste of Time" for the National Walk Campaign against drugs.

In 1994 I sang Johnny Gonzales' Christmas CD, "My Christmas" - a compilation of the top artistes of Trinidad and Tobago performing the traditional Christmas standards. Nigel sang the only original song from Johnny Gonzales, on the album "Christmas on the Hill" which is still the most requested christmas song. The song was at the Number 1 position for two consecutive years on the local charts. 

Nigel has been free-lanced extensively, appearing as a guest artist on various shows and with different acts. No stranger to the recording studio, I have been on many occasions as a lead vocalist on varied projects. In 1992, Nigel worked along with Dr. Kiran Akal, who at the time was the Commissioner here in Trinidad for the Seville World Fair and assisted Dr. Akal in the production and preparation of local music for the Seville World Fair. Nigel, in his amazing career, has also entertained on two separate occasions, two of the country's Prime Ministers for their private functions.



In 2001, Nigel and his good friend and old band mate Arthur Reid, formed a duo "Framework II" with two guitars and backed by pre-recorded digital sound, and to the present day has been playing the circuits, appearing at the top night spots, clubs, hotels, private and corporate functions. 

In 2001, together, they released a 12 song Christmas CD, of which four tracks off the CD are Nigel's compositions. Again a huge hit on the local market and received great reviews in the local media. 

In 2010 Nigel wrote and produced his solo album "The Darker Side Of Me". This thirteen song rock album has received the best reviews for Nigel so far.




After all these years, Nigel has been consistent and continues to please and entertain his audiences. He has not intentions of stopping and has now released his latest production .. "The Lighter Side" to 14 song cd unplugged all acoustic.
