Shavon seeks soca breakthrough with Anthem
Rising soca star Shavon Leighanna David believes Carnival 2013 will be a bumper season for her as her soca tune Ladies Anthem heats up the local airwaves.
David, of Range Road, Cocoyea, San Fernando, says she is hoping to make her mark on the local entertainment scene with her new tune which has been receiving a lot of airplay.
“I am pushing it (the song) as best I can. The airplay is great, it is being played on all the radio stations. It is heating up on the airwaves,” David said. “I have high hopes for this song. I want to make a mark. I believe in the track,” David said.
The track, which was produced by Kasey Phillips Precision Productions and David’s manager Dane Pierre from Joy Production, has been gaining momentum at parties.
“I am getting good reviews. People are liking the song, they feeling the song,” she said.
Ladies Anthem has an infectious beat which has been creating at stir among partygoers. This, David said, is exactly what she has been hoping for from her music.
“I want people to recognise me in a good way,” said David who has been singing for the last ten years.
She said Ladies Anthem is meant to empower women.
“This song is about telling men do not come in the party and rule my bumper or come to lock me down for the night in the party unless you put a ring on my finger. It is for ladies to assert ownership of their bumper,” David said.
The 20-something singer started singing at the tender age of three and 2013 marks her tenth year singing professionally.
Some of her past tracks include: I Feeling It (2003); Watching Meh Bumper (2005); Twist and Tune (2010); Thickalicious and Cake (2012.)
David admitted that many still see her as a young artiste. However, she said, her music is more mature in its lyrics “I am not a teenager. I am maturing and that shows in my music. I have good material and it is being played. I write my own songs.”
David said her family fully supports her dream of singing and credits her father Garth for pushing her towards a musical career.
“I will continue to pursue my dreams. It is nobody else’s dream and I am not watching somebody and try to be like them. I love this, this is me,” David declared.
