Even in Europe, however, Boyd is
known for his unique sound—he
still uses his “Quadraphonic four-
stick technique”—which combines
steelpan as an accompaniment
instrument with vocals and
composing and songwriting.
Boyd has recorded three
releases including his first solo
album Rich in a Troubled
Time, (2000) Transformation (2011)
and recently released Beatin’ On A
Drum (2016). Boyd is pleased with
how life has changed for him.
“Things have going steady and
onward. So I am happy and look
forward to excellent working
relationships all over the world in the
future,” he admitted. In addition to
performing, Boyd leads workshops
on his pan technique and ensemble
work and has taught as an adjunct
professor of two courses

sings and play it in a soulful R&B
style, strongly connected to his
New Orleans experience.
According to Boyd, he treats
the steelpan as a “sort of blues
instrument and just basically just
turn it as loud as possible and just get
it raw as I can. I’m working with a
lot of pedals and a Fender amplifier
although I am not against going
Similar to the electric guitar, Boyd
wants the ability to enhance his
steelpan’s sound by directly miking
his instrument and using accessory
devises to alter the sound. The result
is a sound described by some as
“Funk with a bit of the Caribbean.”
What is for sure, however, is the
