Chronixx heads to Portland on Sunday to headline an 8 p.m. show at the Wonder Ballroom, 123 N.E. Russell St.

The 24-year-old Jamaican singer, who has been lauded as the leader of reggae's new generation, began this headlining tour after an epic performance on the Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.

Born Jamar Rolando McNaughton in Spanish Town, Jamaica - Chronixx was musically nurtured by his father, dancehall artist Chronicle, and grew up surrounded by the likes of Burro Banton and Gregory Isaacs. His youthful voice carries the wisdom of generations of reggae singers and holds a positive message and fresh sound.
