Dominican Artist Selected to be Part of Kerwin Dubois Regional Artist Group
Everlyne Walters, professionally known as “Ebony Empress” is a Dominican music artist that has been selected, alongside twenty-four others, by International Soca Artist, Kerwin Dubois to be part of a regional artist group called “Sput”.
Everlyne was born in Goodwill Dominica but lived in Portsmouth until her late teens and now resides in St. Maarten. The singer/songwriter said in an interview with Bouyon Nation that her passion for music started when she was very young. She said that as a child she would join school choir competitions at her school and actually won some of those. Her stage name “Ebony Empress” actually comes from two different things. “Ebony” comes from her beautiful dark complexion and “Empress” came as a result of people calling her empress whenever they approached her or met her.
“No weapons is a song that I wrote to express how confident I am in myself and what I do. No matter what weapons formed against me I will indeed prosper.“
“Quality Bumper is a song that was made to uplift women and increase their confidence. It’s meant to help them feel comfortable in their own skin regardless of whether they got their body surgically enhanced or not. I wrote it because, personally, I have a quality bumper and I’m extremely proud of it and I think other women should be proud too.”
When asked how she found out about Sput, Miss Walters told us that Kerwin Dubois started a singing competition on his Instagram live and that she constantly tried to get in by calling, but it wasn’t until a week after the competition started that he started the competition that she got in. Many individuals took part in this competition but only twenty-five were selected to be part of Sput.
“Sput aims to give us a chance to allow the world to know who we are, our talents and the passion we have for what we do. We are actually the next wave coming in the near future.” Ms. Walters also said that Sput will not only focus on Soca music but will also venture into other music genres such as Zouk and Calypso. Ms. Walters hopes to only gain experience from this opportunity but also outsiders perspective when she’s writing her own music.
