David Rudder | D'Music Safe & Sound Episode 7

David Rudder is one of Trinidad and Tobago's most beloved singers. He is an icon who has given us songs that will live on for generations to come. It was back in 1977 that David Michael Rudder joined the iconic Charlie's Roots led by master music producer Pelham Goddard. Charlie's Roots featured two awesome singers in Chris Tambu Herbert and David Rudder. Both singers had careers outside Charlie's Roots but it was Rudder who first took the nation by storm. 

It was 1986 when Rudder stepped out of Charlie's Roots' shadow and won Young Kings, the National Calypso Monarch, and Road March (Bahia Girl) titles. The nation loved it all. They were mesmerized by classic songs like Bahia Girl and The Hammer. David Rudder ruled the music scene and toured Europe and North America along the way. We must mention that Rudder's counterpart Tambu Herbert won the Road March crown in 1988 (This Party is It), 1989 (Free Up) and 1990 with 'We Ain't Going Home'.
