On Tuesday, September 17, the long awaited live NYC debut of rising reggae stars, Chronixx & The Zinc Fence Band, will finally take place for the first time ever at SOB’s! The collective brings its unique brand of reggae to the world famous venue after numerous delays. Joining Chronixx for the night will be young reggae songstress, Kelissa!

Growing up under the influence of the likes of Burro Banton, Borris Man, the legendary Gregory Issacs, and, his mentor, Danny Browne, it’s no wonder Chronixx is the rising force in the world of modernReggae he is today. The young prodigy wrote his first song ‘Rice Grain’ at the age of five and started producing for artists such as Konshens and Munga Honorable and voicing artists at the age of 14. The synergy he found with Romaine ‘Teflon’ Arnett of ZincFence Recordz has given birth to a Reggae singer armed with strong lyrics, accompanying a unique musical sound.

Kelissa’s soulful, rootsy and world beat music provides a reservoir of her life experiences and is driven by her passion to uplift and inspire others. Raised in the inspirational hills of St. Andrew, Jamaica, Kelissa developed a natural inclination for music, largely influenced by a Rastafari upbringing. With her parents as lead vocalists in the original reggae band ‘Chakula,’ creation and appreciation of music were constant features in her home.

In 2006, Kelissa took her music to Africa where she broadened her musical scope during extended periods in Tanzania, Ethiopia and Ghana. During this time, she continued expanding her musical abilities by teaching herself the guitar and collaborating with several musicians and producers.

Kelissa eventually teamed up with ‘Zinc Fence Records’ to produce her first EP ‘Rebel In Disguise,’ which was first released during her tour to six African countries in August, 2012.
