About

Austin "Superblue" Lyons (born May 25, 1956), better known as Superblue, Super Blue, and Blueboy, is a Trinidad and Tobago calypsonian, soca musician, ICON and lyricist
Born in Point Fortin, Trinidad to a Grenadian mother and Trinidadian father, he became famous from his first foray into the calypso tent world in 1980 with "Soca Baptist" a song he penned in 1979. "Soca Baptist" also won him his first Carnival Road March Monarch in 1980, while giving him the biggest win at that time though the magnitude of that win would be dwarfed by his own subsequent landslide victories. He went on to win the annual Carnival Road March title eight times and the Trinidad Soca Monarch (now the International Soca Monarch) title a record 5 times.

Superblue is famous for wearing blue costumes. He developed a reputation for performing daring antics while on stage for the Trinidad Soca Monarch competitions.

Superblue's daughter Fay-Ann Lyons, whose mother is calypsonian Lady Gypsy, is herself a well-known soca musician (composer and performer), who has already at a young age won three Road March Monarch titles (2003, 2008 and 2009) and who performs at both local and foreign carnival events. Superblue recorded the song, "Clear de Road", with Fay-Ann and they performed it together for the International Soca Monarch competition in 2004. They did not place in the top ten however. In fact since his last Soca Monarch win in 2000, Superblue remained out of the winners' circle musically until 2011 when he received the SAO Hall of Fame Award for his body of work. He continues to record music and his earlier songs are still held to be classic soca compositions, used in Panorama competitions even in recent times. He is hailed as the originator of the "jump and wave" style of soca songs and also credited by the benefactor of the International Soca Monarch, William Munro to have played a major role in the success of that competition in the early years.

The song titled "Barbara" by Superblue was played as background music in the movie Side Streets (1998).
