The Trelawny Multi-purpose Stadium will be energised with the addition of young Reggae sensations Chronixx, ProtojÚ and young soulful performer Christopher Martin at the 18th staging of the Jamaica Jazz and Blues Festival.

Scheduled for January 30- February 1, the organisers have identified the value of incorporating younger acts in the three-day music festival.

Chronixx, Bryan Art and Christopher Martin are slated to perform on Thursday, January 30, while ProtojÚ will take the stage for his Jazz debut, preparing a full band presentation on Friday, January 31. The trio One Third, as many others before, graduates from an impressive talent stage performance last year, to open the festival's main stage on Saturday, February 1.

Reggae artiste Chronixx has been making waves both locally and internationally as the young vocalist sets out to establish himself with songs like Behind Curtain, They Don't Know, Smile Jamaica and Here Comes Trouble. His string of hits has quickly gained respect and adoration of reggae fans of all ages across the world.

No stranger to the Jamaica Jazz and Blues Festival, the exceptional vocalist, Christopher Martin, will be seeking to make a lasting impression with his trademark charismatic and interactive performance.

"I'm looking forward to showcasing my talents on such a big stage to all the different music lovers, attending from all over the diaspora. I am looking forward to delivering all those songs people have grown to love and respect me for," Martin said. Screaming female fans will be captivated with his catchy songs, Paper Loving, Chill Spot, Take My Wings and the fan favourite Cheater's Prayer.

This year, ProtojÚ will make his full solo debut on the Jamaica Jazz and Blues stage with an excellent catalogue of songs, such as Kingston Be Wise and Who Them A Program off his sophomore album, The Eight Year Affair. Fans can expect the music to speak for itself when ProtojÚ takes the stage after a nine-month hiatus of performing in Jamaica. ProtojÚ revealed: "It's just roots reggae music coming at you, dub-wise, dub-style, heavy roots music and all. I haven't performed in Jamaica in almost a year so I'm looking forward to touching the stage and giving the people a real nice experience."

ProtojÚ said: "It is a joy to be on the festival, working on the same night as Toni Braxton and Chrisette Michele, who are some extraordinary vocalists."
