Reggae musicians Chronixx, Damian “Jr. Gong” Marley and Morgan Heritage have been nominated for a Grammy award for Best Reggae Album of 2017
This is Chronixx’s first Grammy nomination. The nod is for his mighty, roots-minded debut LP, Chronology, according to the list published recently by Recording Academy. Here are the nominees for Best Reggae Album.
- “Chronology” — Chronixx
- “Lost in Paradise” — Common Kings
- “Wash House Ting” — J Boog
- “Stony Hill” — Damian “Jr. Gong” Marley
- “Avrakedabra” — Morgan Heritage
The 60th Grammy Awards show will air live from New York City’s Madison Square Garden on Jan. 28.
Chronixx, 25-year-old, from Spanish Town, Jamaica, who has spearheaded a reggae revival that’s more than merely retro, has been regarded as most promising reggae ambassador of this generation. In 2015, fans claimed Chronixx was snubbed by the Grammy Awards but according to his manager, Daddi Barnz, his Dread and Terrible project was not an album, therefore was not eligible for nomination.
