"Barbadian Soca Artist Releases her new single Refill".
Entertainer Faith Callender was born on March 20th, 1993 on the beautiful island of Barbados. Faith is viewed as your ordinary “Girl Next Door” because she is relatable and down-to-earth, but an explosive alter ego comes out on stage that is guaranteed to catch your attention. Music has always been a passion for Faith from a tender age, which led her to enter her first singing competition in 2007 at her alma mater “The Alleyne School” where she walked away with the crown. This motivated her to heavily consider a future in music. Although music is Faith’s passion, she strongly believes in possessing a solid education. Faith holds an Associate Degree in Accounting and Economics and a Bachelor’s Degree in Accounting and Finance attained from UWI Cavehill (2016). While studying for her degree, Faith dare not let her music slip. Faith has been training, working on original material and developing herself as an artiste.
Faith has performed with popular local bands such as “Soca Kartel”, “The Energy Band”, “4K The Band”, “Hygraid” and “Eva Blaze”, where she was seen at events like The BarbadosMusic Awards, One Love, Soca Royale, Soca On The Hill, Dis Is Rick, Ms. Teen Universe, HYPD, Reggae on the Hill, Soca On The Hill, Cohoblopot, NCF Cavalcades, Honey Jam, HoneyJazz, Love Poetry and Song, private events, school pageants, nightclubs and restaurants. She has also been seen at the Afro Festival in Panama and numerous events at Miami Carnival.
Faith got her first placement on television with a Banks Beer commercial she co-wrote, and landed another in a local movie “Pay Day 2” with her reggae single “Listen Careful” written by Rhea Layne and Produced at Hit Island Studios. She also holds the title Ms. Banks Calendar Girl 2014.
In 2014, Faith decided to get her feet wet by competing in the Soca Arena and she released three songs for the Crop Over season, “Lock It”, “Happiness” and “Soca Therapy”. Soca Therapy was a duet with fellow Banks ambassador Mr. Anderson “Blood” Armstrong, and Lock It landed her a spot in the Party Monarch Finals (albeit as the reserve). With Faith’s 2014 success, she was more eager to captivate the hearts of the public and released three more songs for Crop Over 2015, “Take Me Out”, “Road Rage” and “Double Trouble”. Take Me Out became a radio sensation; Road Rage featured the Caribbean Queen Ms. Alison Hinds and made it to the semi-finals of the Party Monarch competition and Double Trouble was yet another collaboration with Anderson “Blood” Armstrong.
Faith Callender can only keep rising from here. 2016 and 2017 Faith continued to raise the bar with “Haunted” and “Refill” (respectively) to follow. In 2017 she also signed a deal with DreamReal Management assigned Matthew ‘Fewwture’ Ashby as her manager and launched her official website – www.yagottahavefaith.com. One of her dreams also came through that year as she graced the Soca Royale Finals stage with her hit single “Run It”. Upsetting the apple cart and stepping outside of the box she also did a bashment soca collaboration “Gimme” with well known artist ‘Scrilla’ which was also a major hit.
In 2018, she followed up with five (5) new original tracks, two (2) of which is set to be on her debut album called ‘Memories’ which will be available on all digital platforms. ‘Sugar’ a collaboration with bajan artist Jus D was also among her releases.
Faith is excited about the future and is embracing all possibilities. She continues to pursue her love for music and entertainment and is determined to reach the goals she has set out for herself.
