Jamaican musician Chronixx has ignited a torch in people’s hearts the world over and is confidently lighting the path for an entire generation of youths to rediscover roots and culture.

Born Jamar Rolando McNaughton, 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 immediately put the budding artist on the radar of music lovers and industry heads.

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.

2016 saw him play to thousands across east Africa and Japan for the first time plus a highlypraised support slot at the opening night of the Stone Roses’ 5-nights at Manchester City FC’s Etihad stadium.

With so much accomplished in such short time, the world is bracing for greater wonders from this young man who walks with an old soul. For Chronixx himself, music is a mission and history is being made everyday still. “Prepare your minds and hearts for this revolution.”
