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 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), Russell (guitarist), Kris (bassist) and Chadd (drummer), have mastered a formula for rotation-worthy records that have made them a household name in Barbados, and created opportunities for them around the globe.
From traveling to France where they co-headlined a concert with Wyclef Jean, to New York City where they were the featured act in the exclusive Billboard Lounge, the band has established themselves as one of the most sought-after Barbadian acts for regional and international music 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 local radio and rock audiences around the world. In addition to making music, the band is also the founder of the island’s biggest acoustic music festival, Mahalia’s Corner.
