Bio

You’ve never heard anything like 5 Miles to Midnight (5M2M). That’s because we are the innovators of the genre ‘Island Rock’ (irock), a fusion of the diverse sounds that make up Caribbean music. We are an award-winning band from Trinidad and Tobago that has opened for major international acts such as Maroon 5, Evanescence, Life House, Far East Movement and Stephen Marley. We have also worked with top local entertainers including Machel Montano and Fay Ann Lyons.

Since we broke on to the music scene in T&T in 2008, the local media has chronicled our many achievements and we have also been featured on the international websites Afropunk.com and MTV Iggy. One of our ultimate accomplishments to date was going up against other international acts and winning MTV Iggy’s Artist of The Week in March, 2013.

Our music is full of the energy and excitement of island life as seen through the eyes of six young, awesome  ‘Trini’ guys. All of our songs come from a place of experience and capture our desire to push boundaries by combining an international sound with a distinct ‘Trini’ perspective.

We invite you to be part of the iRock revolution.
