Jamaican singer Chronixx and the Zinc Fence Redemption band will be performing on April 29, 2017, at 9:00pm at The Bearsville Theater. The theater is located on 291 Tinker Street (Route 212) in Woodstock, New York. Here are excerpts from the Bearsville Theater’s description:
Jamaican musician Chronixx has ignited a torch in people’s hearts the world over and is confidently lighting the path for an entire generation of youths to rediscover roots and culture.
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. His remarkable ascension in the music industry began in the background; harmonizing for artists such as Lutan Fyah and providing production assistance for tracks sung by Popcaan, Konshens and others.
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 a fan favorites far beyond Jamaican shores. [. . .] 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 every day still.
