Lead Vocals and leader of the group.
Plati is the Alias and alter ego of Tyrone "Butch" Bartlett. An over achieving kid from humble lower middle class beginnings, taking advantage of opportunities that require academics as the only capital, he managed to create a medical degree, and a successful career. This was done out of necessity to survive more than anything, because the artistic side always dominated his personality. Always a free spirit. Always challenging. Always. Plati's vision of life has been shaped by traumatic and insightful experiences, the lessons of which he feels compelled to share with any ear that is willing to listen, whether for an audience of one or all, Plati is totally committed to purpose and elevation of consciousness, both personally, and globally.
Raquel Simone Horton
Epitomizes beauty, tenacity and positivity in the Bahamian woman. Best known for her crowning achievement of Miss Bahamas Universe in 2004, Ms. Horton earned this distinction after many hard years of work in modeling, etiquette, hosting and community service with some of the top organizations in The Bahamas. She is a model, actress, entrepreneur and patriotic citizen, a beauty queen and an artist whose work still hangs today in some of the most prestigious addresses in the country including the chambers of the former Governor General. She is excited about this new adventure in her life, joining Plati and the Naykid-I band.
Affectionately called "Co" by the Plati & the Naykid-I band, started playing the guitar at the age of seven, as his father, Mark Carey, is a musician, who plays several instruments. Shangamari plays the bass guitar for the band, but he also plays the keyboard from time to time. He has backed up major bahamian artists such as Ronnie Butler and Jay Mitchell. He also plays for Jazz bands and shows his diversity as a player by being able to cross over to many genres of music. He is an event planner who has had many successes, including the popular Junkanoo Summer festival in Downtown, Nassau.
Plays the lead and rhythm guitar, but he is also a composer, set to release his first instrumental album featuring caribbean music in the near future. He is equally as passionate about playing the guitar as he is about being a composer. His interest in music was sparked at a very early age as he would watch his uncle play the Spanish guitar and he often asked to play it also. At the age of nine, his father bought Craig his first guitar, which, at the time, cost $35. Craig got three lessons from his uncle and from there, he taught himself how to master the instrument. Since venturing into composing, Craig says he has been told that he has the potential to release platinum-selling tracks. These words of encouragement give him the impetus to continue sharpening all of his skills in music.
Leslie "Little Sparrow" Hoyte
Born in Freeport, Grand Bahama, the fourth child of famous steel pan player Leslie "Little Sparrow" Hoyte, David was surrounded by music even before his birth. His earliest memory of playing the steel pans is standing on a milk crate in Freeport Harbour, playing his steel drum as a cruise ship docked and passengers tossed money in appreciation. By the age of 12, David had become a much sought-after member of the family band. He earned his Associate's degree in Music Composing from Norfolk State University. He has several compilations available, including King David Instrumental, New Wave Steel Pan, and Body Jam. His life-long career has had many high points, including playing at the reception of ESPN's Billfishing Extreme Release League; performing with the legendary Bahamian group "Swain & the Citations; and appearing in the MGM film "Zeus & Roxanne", performing the theme song "Island in the Sun" with his fifteen member family steel band, Little Sparrow and the Sparownettes.
Donald F.W. Campbell
A veteran singer, guitarist and writer, was bitten with the "music bug" well over thirty years ago. His training began as a youngster in the Christ Church Cathedral Boy's and then Men's choir, where he was exposed to Sacred music under the accomplished direction of Fr. Frederick Fleischer. This experience enabled him to attain numerous awards from the Royal School of Music in London, England, as well as the Anglican Diocese. Trained in voice, practical and theory, Don soon found pleasure in mastering the guitar, to which he continues to devote much time to, while honing his craft. Conquering a back injury he sistained in a car accident over twenty years ago, this humble, reflective, kindhearted gentleman pursues both his professional and musical endeavours with gusto, despite his physical challenge.
