Reggae revival’s torch bearer Chronixx is currently back in the island preparing for his first local ‘tour’ which will see him making stops in Negril, St Elizabeth, the Corporate Area and Portland.

“From the inception of the Dread and Terrible project, I wanted to do something like this, but there have been so many engagements here and overseas…I just wanted to give Jamaica a show,” Chronixx explained.

“I have done shows like this so many times all over the world and I just feel like Jamaica gets left out as I don’t get to perform a full set on most of my local shows as there is always a short time on stage,” he added.

The tour starts at the Rockhouse Hotel in Negril with two shows — next Wednesday and Thursday, March 11 and 12. The event which will also feature his Zincfence Redemption band moves to St Elizabeth on March 13 for the show at the St Elizabeth Technical High School (STETHS). On March 14, the Corporate Area will have the opportunity to experience the set when he performs at the Karl Hendrickson Auditorium at Jamaica College in St Andrew. This leg of the Jamaican ‘tour’ wraps on March 15 with the performance set for Oyster Bay in Anchovy, Portland.

“It’s something we want to take right across the island as there are so many people who have supported Chronixx, we just want to bring the music to them,” he stated.

Meanwhile, the artiste is getting set to hit the studios to record more music but is yet to decide if a long-awaited album will be released this year.

“I’ve always been working on an album, from the moment I started recording my music. But based on how the industry is right now it doesn’t really matter what you call a compilation of your music, whether it is an album or EP, music is music, so I can’t say if or what we’ll be be doing later this year,” said Chronixx.

Chronixx – we anxiously await you coming to our shores.
