About the Artist
He’s been touted as the next Bob Marley and attributed to sparking a “musical revolution”, now rising Jamaican star Chronixx and his band Zinc Fence Redemption are bringing their distinctive style of reggae to Vancouver February 28th, 2015.
At just 21-years old, Chronixx has earned himself the reputation as the one to watch for his energetic live performances and conscious, jah-inspired jams – or as The Guardian put it “dishing out lessons in the real three R’s: Rasta, and Roots Reggae.”
Following on from the release of the Dread & Terrible last April, Chronixx immediately topped both the Billboard and iTunes reggae charts.
His subsequent worldwide ‘Dread & Terrible’ tour continues to see him on the upward trajectory – selling out shows, performing coveted slots on Central Park’s Summer Stage (in front of attendees such as Mick Jagger no less) and also featuring on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.
Spearheading a new reggae revival, Chronixx’s charismatic delivery, unwavering positivity and live band sound is a refreshing change of pace in an over-crowded dance-hall scene. His socially conscious, enriching one-drop reggae style harks back to the 70’s golden age while still encapsulating contemporary influences.
Pricking the ears of music lovers, taste-makers and fellow artists alike, Chronixx first encapsulated audiences with his 2010 debut EP Hooked on Chronixx, before dropping a Major Lazer-backed mixtape Start A Fire in 2012.
