Ras Kronik is a singer/songwriter and producer. Originally from Jamaica, he is an artist with his finger on the cultural pulse of reggae music. His songwriting reflects upon the struggles of all mankind and the rewards that can be gained spiritually if one only believes in a power that is higher than man. He also writes about love won and lost. Whether it’s love between a man and woman or the love of the Most High, he brings his message across with clarity and definition.
Ras Kronik’s electrifying voice is soulful, chanting, and edgy. Kronik’s weaves the cultural lyrics of “old school” roots music with modern day experiences to create a unique listening encounter. Reggae – naked and raw is an apt description for Ras Kronik’s musical style, in which he forgoes the frills of extensive remixes, overdubbing and other musical refinements. He was awarded the Best Reggae performer In Las Vegas by the American Black Music Association in 2008.
Los Santos embodies the face of Brazil; a little bit of reggae, a little bit of punk rock; a little bit of Afro Jazz and Pop and of course, Samba, all balanced in a tasty treat for your ears. His new album: AfroSambaFusion is a full-bodied combination of energies blended into a truly original flavor
Roots reggae singer, Edge Michael, is the nephew of the late, great Peter Tosh. His live performances ignite fire with his high-energy soul rocking ride of a show, that leaves his audiences empowered. “My career has taken me around the globe in so many towns cities, villages, I see the need for help in so many ways”… as Edge has toured the U.S. and Europe from Atlanta to Austria he carries his messages of self-empowerment through love and compassion for mankind. The Edge Michael Foundation sponsors The Blossom Garden Orphanage in Montego Bay Jamaica. “I need for people to feel the love in my music therefore I must feel the love and needs of the people”.
