It was his perfectionist personality coupled with his stubbornness which turned Irvin ‘Ace’ Loctar into the success he is today. As a child, Irvin secretly wanted to be able to sing like Lionel Richie, dance like Michael Jackson and even hit notes like Barry White and Philip Bailey.

Drawing influence from his musical family, Irvin developed his skills. His uncle, Patrick and his father played the guitar, his mother and grandmother were devoted singers in the church choir and his eldest brother played the guitar, keyboard and the alto saxophone.

With over 16 years of musical experience under his belt, Irvin, who is better known in music circles as ‘Ace,’ made it onto the Saint Lucia Jazz stage in 2001, performing as the lead singer with Sorjorn currently known as Blue Mango.

The prolific entertainer has opened for the likes of Luther Vandross and Third World and has collaborated with an impressive list of regional and international studio houses, artistes, producers and music aficionados. In 2005 Ace partnered with longtime friend Dwayne Mendes and fellow musicians Thygenson (Penn) Joseph to form the now famed record label SLU Records Inc. where he serves as the CEO.
