Rudder and the late Pat
Bishop, with whom he
collaborated on a range
of musical projects.
After ten years David Michael Rudder will do his
first major full length concert on local soil on June
29, at the Queen s Park Savannah, Port-of-Spain.
Billed as Rudder 6.0, the production promises to be
a celebration of Rudder s 60th birthday, a milestone
he achieved on May 6.
Even the most loyal of Rudder fans have been eagerly
awaiting something new from the artiste and they
can look forward to some new stuff from their icon.
"I ll be doing songs that I did from the sixties come
up," said Rudder this week from his Toronto base.
"People will expect the tried and tested so I ll go there,
but there will also be the hidden gems. Lets just say
they ll hear a David that few have heard before. It ll
be a long beautiful night."
Despite the innumerable milestones, accolades and
acclaim he has gleaned through his career, Rudder is
hungry to create even more music. He said: "Sixty is
the new 40 for me. When I hit 40, I felt nothing, 50
same. Sixty makes you sit up and think though. I want
to write now, alongside the music and return to painting,
drawing, sculpture etc. You know a book launch, an
art exhibition, a major concert each year, or two, will
be just fine.
"I want to continue and expand my little outreach
with the youth, now that my little ones are getting
One of the most impactful exponents of the calypso
art form ever, Rudder made his mark in 1986 by win-
ning that year s three most prestigious titles, as well
as having the National Panorama champion (Neal &
Massy Trinidad All Stars) play one of his songs (The
Hammer) as its tune of choice. But, Rudder has been
singing for much longer than that. The Belmont Inter-
mediate alumnus used to do covers of popular artistes
and he garnered popularity by performing in nightspots,
like the defunct Rolls Royce International Disco.
A twist of fate brought Rudder to Charlie s Roots,
Pelham Goddard and soca music. Roots vocalist Chris
"Tambu" Herbert lost his voice through oversinging
while on tour. In search of a vocalist, Goddard recalls
the band s guitarist Emaon Ector introducing him to
Rudder. Goddard said that Rudder, at the time, was
doing background vocals with the husband and wife
duo of Carl and Carol Jacob in KH Studios, in Sea
Lots. Rudder s voice is on the recording tracks of many
of the day s premier calypsonians, like the late Lord
Melody, and he also did background vocals on 1980
Road March Soca Baptist by Blue Boy (SuperBlue).
Goddard said the first recording Rudder did with
Roots was Jungle Fever, done in 1981, theme song of
a mas presentation by Peter Minshall. For four years,
Rudder and Roots grew in appeal and popularity and,
in 1985, almost hit the jackpot with a single titled
The song was a runner-up in the Road March race,
behind Crazy s Soucouyant.
