Chronixx
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. 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.

Jesse Royal
Jesse Royal
Jesse David Leroi Grey, aka Jesse Royal, was born April 29, 1989. He enjoyed his early years in the hills of Maroon Town and the District of Orange in St. James before moving in the late 90's with his mother and brother to join his father in Kingston. As fate would have it, Royal developed a special relationship with Daniel 'Bambaata' Marley (son of Ziggy Marley) at school. His friendship with Daniel proved to be fuel to the fire as they shared a deep passion for music and football. Their friendship evolved as they spent a great part of their childhood together. Soon the natural inclination confirmed they were simply brothers with different mothers. As these cubs became lions so grew their devotion to music. With the help of longtime friend Curt 'Qban' White they began composing and creating their own music. And together they proceeded to fulfill what they knew was a predestined musical journey, designed to inspire, engage and unite people beyond all geographic borders.

After Jesse returned home from schooling abroad, he reestablished a relationship with high school friend and young producer Kareem 'Remus' Burrell (son of Philip 'Fatis' Burrell). They began creating and composing music together also, which developed into a Movement as they shared similar views on the social state of Jamaica.

Blessed with a voice that captures the pain and hunger of a 'downtrodden' people; Royal's militant character and profound lyricism caught the heart of heralded reggae producer, Philip 'Fatis' Burrell. Fatis Burrell, affectionately called 'Father' had a great and pure impact on the 'old soul' of Jesse; as he credits him as an invaluable inspiration and one of the most influential individuals that he has ever encountered.

Working with musicians such as Sly Dunbar, Robbie Shakespeare, Donald Dennis, Earl 'Chinna' Smith and Monty Savory; Jesse is currently in the studio putting the final touches on his debut album with producer Kareem Burrell of the XTM.Nation. Jesse Royal also recently released his debut mixtape dubbed 'Misheni', which means 'The Mission' in Swahili.
