Born Jamar Rolando McNaughton on October 10, 1992, Chronixx had been nurtured from an early age to do music. His father, dancehall artist Chronicle, was a big influence on the young Chronixx as well as being surrounded by the likes of Burro Banton and Gregory Isaacs. The rise to music fame began in production. From harmonizing for artists to providing production assistance for tracks sung by Popcaan, Konshens and others.

After Fame

Today, Chronixx is a respected artist in his own right after his career was stimulated by the unfortunate passing of both his blood brother in 2007 and his brother-in-arms, Lil’ J.O.E., in 2010. The first EP, ‘Hooked on Chronixx’, was released in 2011 and immediately put the budding artist on the radar of music lovers and industry heads alike with “Start A Fyah”, “Warrior” and breakout single “Behind Curtain” standing out as fan favorites far beyond Jamaican shores (courtesy of

Dread & Terrible

The Dread & Terrible Project was then released in April 2014 and comprised of seven tracks plus three dub versions. The project immediately topped the Billboard (US) and iTunes reggae charts in both UK and Japan. Being neither album nor EP, the Project includes the widely received “Capture Land” and a short film based on one of its tracks, “Rastaman Wheel Out” – directed by Ras Kassa – to critical acclaim.

The Late Show with Jimmy Fallon and other performances

The hit single, “Here Comes Trouble”, caught late night American TV presenter Jimmy Fallon’s attention while on vacation in Jamaica. The chance encounter lead to a personal request for the young musician to perform live on Fallon’s TV show in July 2014. A concert held in Central Park the following week was a roadblock affair from the outset, thousands of attendees turned out including Rolling Stones’ frontman Mick Jagger celebrating his 71st birthday.

Chronixx toured for the first time in 2013 when he went to Europe with his own band Zincfence Redemption. He has since embarked on solo tours from the Americas to the Oceanic region; including sold out shows in New York, three shows in London, Trinidad & Tobago, Australia, Canada, and being the first band to do a 2-part tour of Jamaica (Capture Land Tour).

With so much accomplished in such short time, the world is bracing for greater wonders from this young man who walks with an old soul. For Chronixx himself, music is a mission and history is being made everyday still.

“Prepare your minds and hearts for this revolution.” – Chronixx
