A major part of the Jamaican reggae revival this generation has announced new international tour dates for 2016.
Chronixx, born Jamar Rolando McNaughton, the son of Jamaican reggae artist Chronicle, is among a group of young reggae artists from the “oval rock” in the Caribbean branded as the Reggae Revival. Protoje, Dre Island, Jah9, Jah Bouks, Kelissa and the aforementioned Chronixx, has ignited a torch in people’s hearts and is confidently lighting the path for an entire generation of youths to rediscover roots and culture within reggae music.
Chronixx’s lyrics range from topical anti-war statements to cautious romantic declarations to rousing anthems of resiliency, which are enhanced in his live performances by audience interactions and an animated delivery, often punctuated by spins and leg kicks. His lithe vocals convey a righteous rage as persuasively as the abiding love he expresses for his native land on “Smile Jamaica”.
That same love will be shared through a lengthy international tour, which will begin on April 16th at The Coachella Valley Music and Arts Annual Festival in Indio, California. From Chronixx’s Coachella debut all the way through the month of July, will be filled with lengthy travel in the United States, Japan, the United Kingdom and much of the European Union.
Chronixx, along with his backing band, Zincfence Redemption, will perform at some of the world’s largest festivals, indoor arenas, massive ballrooms and intimate nightclubs all within the same touring schedule, sometimes in the same week.
