|Chronixx and Zinc Fence band|
At just 20-years old the Jamaican artist Chronixx already has a handful of successful singles, music videos and a mixtape with Diplo's Major Lazer. This is all before he's even released a full-length album. But what makes Chronixx's early success so intriguing is the way he's done it. Spearheading a new reggae revival, Chronixx's music is heavy on unwavering positivity and a live-band sound. The result is a refreshing change of pace that just might alter the Jamaican music genre in a major way.
With a message of acceptance and love and Rastafari being the foundation of his message it explains why the world is gravitating to his music. After two successful European tours, Chronixx hits USA, throughout their 8-date Dread and Terrible east coast tour (so named for their forthcoming EP to be released on chronixx's label Zinc Fence Records which concluded on September 21 in Brooklyn. Chronixx and his band have played in mostly sold-out venues averaging a capacity of 600.
Island Records' founder (turned hotel and rum magnate) Chris Blackwell is also impressed by Chronixx describing his music, in an email to Billboard biz as "completely fresh, uplifting and very pure," adding that "It's fantastic for someone so young to be able to communicate his message in the way he does and entertain at the same time."
