BUZz: Christopher Martin Makes His Debut Performance In Dominica

Thursday, May 19, 2011

AGSelectPR-Christopher Martin will be making his debut performance in Dominica at Krazy Koconuts club on June 4th 2011. This is welcome news to fans who were expecting him on island earlier this month.

The 2005 Digicel Rising Stars winner, known for songs such as “Giving It”, “Jamaican Girl”, “Take My Wings”; last year’s remake of Bruno Mars’ “Just The Way You Are”; and more recently, “Paper Loving”; is very much looking forward to this visit. According to show promoter Dane Smalling of Danejah Entertainment, he will be on island a couple days prior to the show to rehearse and of course enjoy Dominica’s beauty and the hospitality of its people. He says, “Dominicans like live music and so Chris will be backed by the Blaklyte band and he will have ample time to rehearse when he arrives on island.”

Smalling has partnered with Chevine Edwards and Andre Davy of Déjà Vu Music to secure the artist and promote the show. The two are Jamaican producers on the rise, known for riddims such as The High Horse Riddim (Lutan Fyah “Love”, Amique “Protect Me”, Mystic Routes “Royal Woman”) and Slow Rush Riddim featuring Junior Reid, Beenie Man, Voicemail, D’Angel and others. Says Edwards, “My business partner and I wanted to expand our promotion efforts beyond Jamaica. We have strong links with many popular artists, and we currently manage Junior Reid. We definitely want to make an impact in the Eastern Caribbean.”

The expectation is that this show will be a first of many Déjà Vu events in Dominica and the springboard for others in the region. Edwards and Davy will accompany Martin and his manager Lyndon ‘Kingy’ Lettman to Dominica. Chris Martin has been nominated for his vocal abilities in recognized Reggae Awards shows such as Excellence in Music and Entertainment (EME) Awards as well as the International Reggae and World Music (IRAWMA) Awards. His music has received tremendous support in Kenya where he was voted 2010 Male Reggae Artist of the Year. 2011 is a year of firsts for Chris starting with his trip to Kenya in March, his upcoming album for the Jamaican market and now his trip to the Nature Isle.
