2 MILE HILL
Barbadian band 2 Mile Hill has shared the stage with some of the world’s most celebrated and talented stars: Angie Stone, Damian Marley, Erykah Badu and Sizzla Kalonji to name a few. Formerly called NexCyx, a name they dropped in early 2016, they’ve also racked up awards and accolades at home in Barbados, and internationally from MTV, Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton and RyanSeacrest.com. But this is only part of their story.
Bandmates since college, Mahalia (lead vocalist), André (keyboardist), Russell (guitarist), Kris (bassist) and Chadd (drummer), have mastered a formula for rotation-worthy records that have taken them to stages as far as Cognac, France where they co-headlined a concert with Wyclef Jean, and New York City where they were the featured act in the exclusive Billboard Lounge. In addition to making music, the band also collectively founded one of the island’s biggest music festivals, Mahalia’s Corner.
In 2018, the band released their Dancehall-R&B record, “Conversation”. With this record, the group once again demonstrated why they are one of the most sought-after live Barbadian acts for Caribbean and international promoters. Their ability to fuse Caribbean vibes with an urban pop sound gives their music an infectious energy that is always guaranteed to be a staple on radio and rock audiences around the world.
“Get Over” the band’s newly released, self-penned record, is filled with the same hook-laden lyric that has made the name 2 Mile Hill synonymous with hit music. The Black Man Chant production will no doubt be a standout in the band’s catalog for years to come.
