Chronixx Announces his North American Tour & Title of his Debut Album!

Posted by on in News

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.

Chronixx & The ZincFence Redemption Capture Land Tour & the Power of Reggae

Posted by on in News

By Grace Vanriel

 

Lining every available crook and cranny of the spacious multilevel Irving Plaza concert hall located in downtown Manhattan, it was elbow room only for fans out to see Chronixx and his band ZincFence Redemption on their 2015 “Capture Land Tour.” The concert was jam-packed and only the VIP areas offered slightly more breathing room and seating options and even there, it was an unprecedented crush. It's hard to imagine that as a Reggae act, Chronixx only started touring outside of Jamaica W.I. in 2013, and that by the following year he was already seeing exponential growth of his fan base and receiving a flurry of bookings as he grew in international acclaim but, it's true. With record sales also steadily growing, everything required for a successful music career is in place and pointing towards a prosperous professional future. It's also now impossible to deny that this young, high pitched, lyrically motivated Rastafarian sing-jay calling himself Chronixx and his extraordinarily talented band mates with an unmistakable sound are much more than just fly-by-night one (or two) hit wonders.

 

Creating and singing great Reggae music is one thing. But actually winning the unwavering loyalty of fans is another. Chronixx (born Jamar McNaughton) has been very successful at doing both. While the first-ever EP released by Chronixx in 2010 consisting of seven tracks called Hooked on Chronixx earned him industry respect, the EP did not make him an overnight celebrity. His rise to fame was short but incremental receiving its first incredible boost when he performed on NBC's ‘Tonight Show’ as a special invited guest of show host Jimmy Fallon. The song he chose was already a popular hit single from his second EP Dread and Terrible (2014) called Here Comes Trouble (Rootsman Rhythm). The performance broadcast live on US national television certainly helped catapult Chronixx into a number two spot on the Billboard Digital Reggae Singles chart, and brought him to the attention of American audiences. However, that performance alone does not explain the sheer speed in which he has continued to rise in popularity since that time which is a dream come true for the artist, and Reggae history in the making.

 

Following the Dread and Terrible Tour, the Capture Land Tour is the second major tour undertaken by Chronixx and is so-named after another song on his Dread and Terrible EP. Capture Land continues to build around a theme of unification through increased social consciousness and takes this interesting new celebrity to twenty-one shows across the United States that kicked off on May 23rd at the California Roots Festival and ends on June 20th at the Fillmore in Miami. Enthusiastic New York fans attending the Irving Plaza show, as part of the 2015 Governors Ball After Dark series, arrived early and in full force, waved Ethiopian flags signifying their understanding and unity with the lyrical messages by holding up lighters and singing along with Chronixx as he performed Rastafari inspired Reggae. Chronixx kicked off his generous two hour concert with the song Alpha & Omega and included a number of other outstanding well performed selections namely: Start a Fire, Eternal Fire, Never Give Up, They Don't Know, Most I, Thanks and Praise, Access Granted, Somewhere, Smile Jamaica, and a popular remake of the Inner Circle song featuring Jacob Miller called Tenement Yard (News Carrying Dread). Tastefully sprinkled throughout the set were short thanks and praises to Jah and brief social commentary on subjects that impact our daily lives, making the entire evening a true Roots & Culture Reggae styled presentation.

 

Chronixx and the ZincFence Redemption's obvious love of Reggae music was apparent in their overall presentation at Irving Plaza. Their generous set never faltered in energy characterized by lyrics that created a storyline and most importantly, a seamless ability to move artfully between the traditional Reggae beat to the modernization of the sound that successfully blended older styled presentations with a newer one. Without going into a lengthy debate on the existence of a “Reggae Revival,” at this point I would interject that if by definition the term is narrowed to mean the “popularization of traditional Reggae music” then I would have to agree, a change has come. It was a sight to behold - Reggae lovers attentively watching Chronixx's every movement on stage, absorbing his message, and swaying where they stood clearly transformed by what they saw and heard. The evening was a totally uplifting experience that fed the mind and moved the body.
