About Christopher Martin
Born on Valentine’s Day in 1987 in Jamaica’s rural community of St.Catherine – Christopher Martin made his mark in 2005 when he won his native country’s top televised talent show competition Digicel Rising Stars.
With his tremendous vocal prowess, soaring melodies and proven lyrical ability, he has consistently churned out hit after hit – including “Cheaters Prayer,” “Change Me Plans,” Take My Wings,” “Giving It,” “I’ll Be Your Driver,” “Paper Loving,” “Chill Spot” and “Look on My Face” – on local and international reggae charts. Over the years, Martin has worked with reggae’s premier producers including Robert Livingston of Big Yard, ZJ Chrome of Chromes label, Shane Brown of Jukeboxx Recordings and Christopher Birch.
He has a devoted fanbase in Japan, where he released his self-titled album in 2011 on the Rockers Island imprint. He has also toured North America and Europe, including an eight-nation tour with platinum selling German Reggae superstar Gentleman.
Christopher Martin will return to NYC over Labor Day Weekend for the West Indian Day festivities 2015.
