He was born on February 8th 1974 and was raised in Tobago. When he was 12, he entered the competition arena, consistently making yearly contributions that impressed and propelled him to advanced stages. His ability to both pen lyrics he loved and sing them in tones far beyond what was expected of his age, gave him the fortitude to compete against some of the best in the industry, among them, veterans such as the calypso queen of the world, Denyse Plummer and Calypso Monarchs Cro Cro and Luta.
Winchester has won numerous Calypso Monarch and Road March titles. In 2004, having already made a name for himself with tracks such as "Baby Love" and "Under My Spell", he won the Road March title in 2004 with "The Band Coming". In 2005 he won again with "Dead or Alive".
