Lord Creator (born Kentrick Patrick, circa 1940, San Fernando, Trinidad and Tobago) is a calypso and soca artist. Alongside Cuban born Rolando Alphonso, Barbadian Jackie Opel and fellow Trinidadians Lynn Taitt and Lord Bryner, Lord Creator was an important and positive 'outside' influence during the early development of the Jamaican music scene.
He started as a calypso singer under the stage name Lord Creator, and moved to Jamaica in the late 1950s. There he recorded his first hit, "Evening News", in 1959 with Fitz Vaughan Bryan's big band. In 1962, he recorded "Independent Jamaica", which became the official song marking Jamaica’s independence from the British Empire on 6 August 1962. That song was also the first record on Chris Blackwell's newly founded Island Records label in the United Kingdom (Island 001). In 1963, "Don't Stay Out Late", produced by Vincent Chin, became a hit in Jamaica.
