​Life on a High Note

My name is Martin “Mice” Raymond and all my work is music.

I got the nickname “Mice” on the first day of form three at Fatima College, after I cut my infamous afro and my glasses broke. A friend said, "Ay - he looking like a mice!" I liked it – it saved all those, "Why do you have two first/last names?" questions. So I told everyone, "Don't call me Mice" – to ensure the name stuck. [Fatima principal] Clive Pantin was probably the only person who didn't call me "Mice".

I come from nowhere in Trinidad. I'm not "Trini to de Bone". I'm an official "Trini-by-boat". I was born in London of Trinidadian and Jamaican parents and came to Trinidad on an actual boat when I was a few months old.
