We’ve featured Chronixx on Monday Music before (here). Today, he’s singing solo and he figures that, “they don’t know.” That can certainly be true sometimes. The holiday season is one which, for many, intensifies feelings of stress and loneliness. If this is you, hopefully this will let you know that you’re not alone. Hopefully you can lean on your God and those you love are are closest to when sharing what most don’t know. Listen to this beautiful, soulful music from Chronixx in the video below to hear what his message is all about.

Jamar Rolando McNaughton, using the moniker 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 October 10, 1992, Chronixx was musically nurtured from an early age by his father, the artist Chronicle, and grew up surrounded by the likes of Burro Banton, Norris Man and Gregory Isaacs. This was before ‘Little Chronicle’ benefited from the mentorship of Danny Browne with whom he recorded his first tune in 2003.
The first EP, Hooked on Chronixx, was released in 2010 and immediately put the budding artist on the radar of music lovers and industry heads alike. Chronixx toured for the first time in 2013 when he went to Europe with his own band. Also in 2013, he and his team were Jamaica’s only representation in Nairobi, where he performed as a Peace Ambassador ahead of Kenya’s general elections. By this time, Chronixx had established new and renewed working connections with Sly & Robbie, King Jammy, Leroy Sibbles and, again, Danny Browne. The Dread & Terrible Project was released in April 2014 with seven tracks plus three dub versions, immediately topping both the Billboard and iTunes reggae charts.
With so much accomplished in so short a 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.
