    Long-reigning singer and songwriter Beres Hammond (“I Feel Good,” “Groovy Little Thing”) has lent his signature, smoky-sweet style – often compared to Otis Redding or Teddy Pendergrass – to every kind of riddim track, from the funked-up reggae jams of 1970s fusion (performed with his then-band, Zap Pow), to the lush instrumentation of his classic Soul Reggae LP, to the spare digital beats of his dancehall breakthrough, What One Dance Can Do , and its follow-up, A Love Affair . He is among a handful of people responsible for maintaining a mighty legacy of soulful reggae music: select artists like Toots Hibbert, Bob Marley, Gregory Isaacs and Dennis Brown. Chronixx was musically nurtured from an early age by his father, dancehall artist Chronicle. His first EP, Hooked on Chronixx , with its breakout single “Behind Curtain,” was released in 2011, followed by Dread & Terrible in 2014. Chronixx appeared on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon after his hit “Here Comes Trouble,” caught Fallon’s attention; he has toured extensively around the globe and in his Jamaican homeland.
