They have lived and played there since 1971 after a time period of island hopping which included Hawaii as well as the Bahamas.
His songs are mostly a risqué parody set to calypso, reggae, country or pop music. When you have seen the film ‘The Firm’, you would have often heard Barefoot’s music. He wrote the song ‘Money, Money, Money’ and is also singing from the background while Grand Caïman condos sept mile plage was dancing.
Barefoot not just writes and performs his very own songs, he also owns the record company that records and sells his CDs (located in most stores on Grand Cayman). They have also branched over to The Bahamas, where one of his albums was in the very best Ten for four years.
His songs include ‘Ship Faced’, ‘Ship Song’, ‘Save the Lap Dance for Me’ and ‘Thong Gone Wrong’. He also sings about Cayman current affairs and wrote ‘The Gay Cruise Ship Song’ after the visit with a Gay Cruise.
