THE most anticipated debut reggae album for decades finally  released on 7/7/17.

Chronixx's "Chronology" is available NOW on itunes and other digital platforms. 

This is a serious MUST for any self respecting reggae fan.

Chronixx “Chronology” album out now - The debut album from Reggae music’s brightest talent

Chronixx's Chronology skyrockets to the top of iTunes today. In the U.S., the Jamaican artist's debut album, available today July 7, 2017, is currently holding the #12 spot on the overall Top Album chart and #1 on Reggae Album chart.  In other iTunes territories, the album lands at #16 in Canada, #19 in UK, #2 in Kenya, #5 in Switzerland on their overall Top Album chart.


“Evolution,” “uprising,” “continuation” and “Rastafari” are words used by the 24-year-old singer-songwriter Chronixx. These identifiers embody every nuance of his long-awaited debut Chronology on his label Soul Circle (Virgin/Universal distribution). They tell the story of a young Jamaican music prodigy whose conscious views of the world continue the legacy of reggae’s forebearers, yet also blazes a new path for traditional and non-traditional listeners.

Since 2012, Chronixx has organically built that devoted fanbase, turning industry heads as one of Jamaica’s fastest, most-promising talents to represent the iconic Caribbean island to a global audience.


From Chronixx’s 2013 breakthrough anthem “Smile Jamaica” (produced by Silly Walks Discotheque)—that put him on the map—to his 2017 self-produced, dancehall-styled single “Likes,” these songs are a guide to the progression of Chronixx as a well-rounded artist on Chronology. His palette for rhythm is limitless, choosing an array of colors to paint vivid pictures. He walks you through the neighborhood that raised him on “Spanish Town Rockin”and pays respect to the women in his life on “Majesty” - both tracks also featured on his 2016 mixtape Roots & Chalice by Federation Sound. On “Ghetto Paradise” (produced by Phillip “Winta” James whose credits include Damian Marley & Protoje), Chronixx expresses the bittersweet realities of Jamaica, a juxtaposition of the island’s beautiful aesthetic and the darkness, poverty and strife that lies within. He declares humanity’s indomitable spirit on “I Can,” produced by Parisian production duo Picard Brothers (credits include Major Lazer, Ellie Goulding, Kehlani). Worries drift away on “Skankin Sweet,” the album’s “richly textured one drop groove” (Billboard). The album’s one and only guest feature is reserved for his father, Jamaican reggae vocalist Chronicle on “Big Bad Sound.” The song hails up all the generals from his father to Haile Selassie who helped shape him musically and spiritually. It is a true example of the art form’s continuation coming full circle.

Thoughtful lyricism aside, one of Chronology’s greatest attributes is its layered production. The album’s rich instrumentation allows the messages to digest into a soulful depth. Chronixx co-produced the entire album with a diverse all-star cast spanning the globe. Repping Jamaica, his touring band Zincfence Redemption along with the island’s renowned musicians Llamar 'Riff Raff' Brown, Dean Fraser, Stephen McGregor (amongst many others) all contributed to the album. Across the map, British drum & bass band Rudimental, London-based Utters and NYC’s Federation Sound round out this dynamic product. For tracks "Country Boy" and "Christina," Chronixx recruited iconic American blues guitarist Donald Kinsey, known for his recording and touring history with Bob Marley and Peter Tosh.  Also a Chicago string orchestra arranged by Matt Jones adds dimension to songs like “Legend,” “Tell Me More” and “Black Is Beautiful.”

Chronology was recorded in studios in Brooklyn, Kingston, London and Chicago, mixed at Miami's Circle House Studios and at NYC's Manhattan Center.

In support of Chronology, he will continue to tour Europe, North America and Japan throughout the summer. He will also join Ms. Lauryn Hill and Nas on their Fall 2017 Powernomics tour. See full tour dates here www.chronixxmusic.com.
