STING 2012 this year will have something a little different – young reggae acts. The event’s promoters are hoping the difference will create the best Sting in the outing’s 29-year history.
In collaboration with DownSound Records, Sting will have a segment called Four The Hard Way, where rising stars Chronixx, Droop Lion, Jahsent and Iba Mahr will be the featured acts. According to Supreme’s CEO, Isaiah Laing, “These four young men we predict to be the next big names of reggae, just wait and see. We have been doing this for years and have an eye for spotting true talent.”
Chronixx, given name Jamar McNaughton, has been steadily making progress with his career. This month sees the young musician embarking on his first overseas tour with performances for South America, Europe and California. His popularity internationally appears to have arrived more quickly than local interest has been able to keep pace with.
Kenya and Sweden have embraced the singer as his track, ‘Behind The Curtains’, is a hit there. With his music being heard more frequently now on Jamaican airwaves, his songs ‘Beat and A Mic,’ ‘Warrior,’ ‘Rain Music’ and ‘Odd Ras’ have all gained recognition, expanding his growing hometown fan-base.
