CHRONIXX with guest KELISSA

JESSE ROYAL and MAX GLAZER (FEDERATION SOUND)

April 14

8:00 pm

Jamaican musician Chronixx has ignited a torch in people’s hearts the world over and is
confident
ly lighting the path for an entire generation of youths to rediscover roots and
culture.
Born Jamar Rolando McNaughton on October 10, 1992, Chronixx was musically nurtured
from an early age by his father, dancehall artist Chronicle, and grew up surrounded
by the
likes of Burro Banton and Gregory Isaacs. His remarkable ascension in the music industry
began in the background; harmonizing for artists such as Lutan Fyah and providing
production assistance for tracks sung by Popcaan, Konshens and others.
Today
, Chronixx is a respected artist in his own right after his career was stimulated by the
unfortunate passing of both his blood brother in 2007 and his brother
in
arms, Lil’ J.O.E., in
2010. The first EP,
Hooked on Chronixx, was released in 2011 and immedia
tely put the
budding artist on the radar of music lovers and industry heads alike with ‘Start A Fyah,’
‘Warrior’ and breakout single ‘Behind Curtain’ standing out as a fan favorites far beyond
Jamaican shores.
The Dread & Terrible Project
was released in
April 2014
a set comprised of seven tracks
plus three dub versions
immediately topping the Billboard (US) and iTunes reggae charts in
both UK and Japan. Neither an album nor an EP, the
Project includes the widely received
‘Capture Land’ and a short fi
lm based on one of its tracks, ‘Rastaman Wheel Out’ (directed
by Ras Kassa), to critical acclaim.
Hit single ‘Here Comes Trouble’ captured late night American TV presenter Jimmy Fallon’s
attention while on vacation in Jamaica. The chance encounter lead to
a personal request for
the young musician to perform live on Fallon’s TV show in July 2014. A concert held in
Central Park the following week was a roadblock affair from the outset, thousands of
attendees turned out including Rolling Stones’ frontman Mick
Jagger celebrating his 71st
birthday.
Chronixx toured for the first time in 2013 when he went to Europe with his own band
Zincfence Redemption. He has embarked on solo tours from the Americas to the Oceanic
region; including sold out shows in New York (I
rving Plaza), three shows in London
(including Somerset House), Trinidad & Tobago, Australia, Canada, Japan and being the
first band to do a two
part tour of Jamaica (Capture Land Tour).
