A Wisconsin native, transplanted to Miami, YOUNI-T began her musical journey at age 5. She was classically trained as an Opera singer and went on to sing every genre on the planet in a variety of cover bands. She also lived and taught music in Kenya, Africa. After returning to the States, she was introduced to the carnival culture and Soca music of Trinidad and Tobago. YOUNI-T instantly fell in love with the music and culture and decided to invent her own genre of soca-fusion music, becoming the first All American to enter the Soca game. Writing her own material, and keeping an open mind,
... YOUNI-T has crossed Soca with Hip-Hop, Dance, Pop, R&B, African Vibes, Trap, Funk, Soul, and Rock N Roll in a tireless effort to bring Soca to the mainstream masses as a GLOBAL phenomenon. She calls her unique flavor of Soca fusion "SOCAMERICA".
YOUNI-T is the first and only ALL AMERICAN CAUCASIAN FEMALE to ever perform Soca music live on the stages of Trinidad and Tobago at Carnival time. In addition, she was also the first All American Caucasian female in HISTORY to get radio play, as well live TV and Radio performances, and was also featured in the Top Newspapers and Magazines in the country. In 2019 she landed a nomination for "FL SOCA ARTIST OF THE YEAR" by the International Soca Awards Committee, and was dubbed a "Cultural Ambassador of Soca Music and Culture of Trinidad and Tobago" by the Soca industry at large.
Proving herself as a force to be reckoned with, she is building her own SOCAMERICAN Empire and invites everyone to revel in the joy of soca music and the ONE LOVE culture that surrounds the essence and music of YOUNI-T.
