Jamaican roots artist Chronixx, a pioneering force in the contemporary reggae movement, is proud to announce his biggest tour to date and his debut album title, both named Chronology.

This year alone, Chronixx & Zincfence Redemption Band headlined tours in Africa, Japan, Europe and North America and rocked major festival shows like Coachella (USA),Austin City Limits (USA), Lovebox (UK) and One Love (Italy) as well as supported the iconic UK rock band Stone Roses at Manchester City Football Club’s Etihad Stadium.

In 2017, the 24-year-old singer and his band expand on this success, kicking off their massive North American tour on March 2 in support of Chronixx's first full length album Chronology (slated for an early 2017 release). The Chronology Tour spans 39 cities across the U.S. and Canada. Tickets go on sale this Wednesday December 14, 2016. Dates below and here.

Chronixx reveals his first visual "Majesty" from Chronology. The song, a beautiful interpretation of Otis Gayle's 1971 Studio One classic "I’ll Be Around" (originally sung by the '70s soul group The Spinners), is also featured on Chronixx's most recent mixtape "Roots and Chalice" curated by NYC's Federation Sound. Majesty is about a spiritual vibration, the divinity within the woman and the balance that can be found within I&I. It’s celebrating that union,” explains Chronixx. In the visual, directed by Chronixx and Che Kothari, the singer serenades his love in a dreamy scenario, set on Jamaica's lush north coastal property Strawberry Fields Together in Robin's Bay, St. Mary.


About Chronixx

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. Chronixx's youthful voice carries the wisdom of generations of reggae singers before his time and holds a positive message for the youth of this generation. In 2014, his music propelled him into international stardom. His Dread & Terrible project, featuring hits like "Here Comes Trouble" and "Captureland," immediately topped the Billboard (U.S.) Reggae chart. He was lauded by the likes of VOGUE, Vice & New Yorker as the leader of the reggae revival and landed performances on major stages including The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon(2014), NYC's Central Park Summerstage (2014), Governer's Ball (2015) and many more.

Double Double Trouble Man Hits BB King NYC Dec 13, 2016

Posted by on in News

Written by UKShasha

Barrington Levy cut his musical teeth at the age of 14 and progressed to recording a string of hits in the 70's through the 90's. Following a lull in his career, he got a much needed boost after being prodigiously sampled in the Hip-Hop and Pop genres. With an envious number of releases (both albums and singles) not to mention ‘unofficial’ outputs of his work, Levy has steadily been recording and making appearances in Europe and at select shows in America.

New York gets another chance to see this stalwart who is now a veteran in the Reggae industry having worked with some of the great producers, musicians and engineers who set the foundation for Reggae; that list includes revered names like Jah Life, Channel One, Henry ‘Junjo’ Lawes, Errol “Flabba” Holt, Carlton “Santa” Davis, Prince Jammy, Earl “Chinna” Smith, Bo-Pee Bowen and Gladdy Anderson to name a few.

Coming from the Dancehall heyday and having toured almost non-stop in the 80's and 90's, Barrington Levy is a showman however if you need further proof, check out his 2016 Reggae Sumfest performance – he's an entertainer who knows how to read and please a crowd; the fact that he is still making quality music after 40-years is no mean feat but a testament to his endurance and work ethic. Whether in Jamaica, England or the USA, Barrington Levy has delivered hits that have stood the test of time. In 2015 he released "Acousticalevy" which received a Grammy Award nomination that same year.

On December 13, 2016 Barrington Levy & the Detour Posse with special guest Mighty Mystic will perform in Manhattan at the famed B.B. King Blues Bar & Grill located in an area that some call the center of the arts and entertainment world – Times Square. For tickets check Ticketmaster or the BB King box office. For additional information or table reservations call 212-997 4144.
