Rebel Vibez is broadcast live from CHRY 105.5 FM, with 2009 RMAA Winner Carrie Mullings. Growing up in the arms of reggae icons Jackie Mittoo, Jo-Jo Bennett, Pat Arthur, Lovindeer, and Glen Ricketts certainly didn’t hurt Carrie Mullings from blossoming into one of the top promoters in the reggae music arena. Her father, the dearly departed Karl Mullings, was a pioneer of the Jamaica to Toronto musical explosion, championing sound and sharing his gift with Carrie and her younger sister, talented Juno nominee, Tanya Mullings. Along with an immeasurable quantity of love, he guided his daughters to the universal consciousness of reggae music.
In 2003, Carrie began to transform her passion into a career, joining the long running Caribbean Crucible on Toronto’s CHRY 105.5 FM. Her vibrant personality captured listeners’ hearts and enriched their minds with her trademark dose of roots, reality, and culture. This quickly led to the first of many guest appearances at local reggae events as a confident Mistress of Ceremonies. Promoters took notice of Carrie’s natural grace that took shape in other ways, reporting the latest reggae news and reviews to radio stations across Canada and the US.
Carrie’s selfless efforts have garnered mass media attention. Articles celebrating her work have been featured in the Toronto Star, Splash Magazine, Canada Extra, The Jamaican Gleaner, Earshot Magazine and ReggaeXclusive, but despite international exposure, you can still hear Carrie occasionally on Caribbean Crucible with Luther Brown, The Cutting Edge (1st Sunday of every month on CHRY 105.5FM), as well as her own Rebel Vibez show. (Every Monday, 10 AM-12 PM). Her fierce determination to foster and develop Canada’s growing reggae scene is best exemplified on the show’s “Singer’s in the Neighbourhood” segment where artists known and unknown ride rhythms live on-air.
Proudly carrying her family’s torch, Carrie Mullings shows no signs of slowing down. She will continue hosting the premiere Canadian Reggae Radio Show. Her style has been described as upbeat, entertaining and spontaneous while never loosing focus.
Be sure to tune in, show up, and continue to support her mission.For all Media or Booking Inquiries contact Louise Noel-Ambrose, Eventobe Event Management & Public Relations Tel:Â 289-389-7204 / 289-389-7204
