Skid”Nevely was formed by Andrew Mc Intosh in 2004, 2 years after migrating from St.Lucia to Trinidad. The original members (which have changed a bit over the years) included Anthony Abraham on drums, Mark Wallace on bass, Shane de Silva on lead guitar and Andrew on steel pan, guitar and vocals.
Four months after their formation and with the support of their manager Karissa Lewes, they went on to win the Anchorage 2004 Pop Music Awards. This opened the doors to many gigs and interviews in the following months, making them a little less tiny on the local scene.
A few months in the studio gave birth to their first album The Boy Who Cried Girl which was launched in 2005 and included the song She’s So His which held its own on local radio as a number one song for weeks.
After bidding farewell to Karissa (who migrated), Skid”Nevely found new management in Simon Baptiste and Question Mark Entertainment. With their help, the band has met and worked with foreign producers like Jonathon McHugh, toured L.A and Florida and also put out their first music video for the song K.I.A which topped a Trinidad video countdown down for months.
A lot has changed since the beginning. New members have come and gone but Andrew and the band still looks forward to the future of Skid which will be filled with new music and the promise of fulfilling the dreams they started with.
