At 14 years, he started producing and 'building riddims' for artistes such as Konshens and Munga Honorable and composing riddims such as the 'Freezer Riddim' for Icebox Records and voicing artistes such as, Popcaan for Maverick Records. While focusing on academics, with a special love for Visual Arts, Chronixx knew that his inner voice was coaxing him to let his own voice be heard. After his brother's death in 2009, Chronixx became more inspired to 'push out' and as fate would have it, in that same year, met some 'brothers' who have undoubtedly impacted on the promising artist he is today. The synergy he found with Romaine 'Teflon' Arnett of ZincFence Recordz gave birth to the creation of a singer, stepping out militantly with a unique voice and armed with lyrics and an accompanying musical sound, set to capture his place on the reggae music stage.
In 2010, as if on a mission, Alty 'J.O.E' Nunes impacted on the lives of not only his brothers, Aijah & Jahnoi, but on Chronixx as well. They started working as a team and after Joe's passing in February 2011, Chronixx, in honour of the Jah Ova Evil legacy, took his career to another level. Instead of going on to Edna Manley College as planned, he, along with other members of the Jah Ova Evil family, released singles such as Behind Curtain, African Heritage, Wall Street and Warrior.
Today, Chronixx credits his versatility and his professional stage presence to the early lessons he received from his father Chronicle, who always shared his own experiences and encouraged his son to go one step beyond with each performance. Chronixx is not disappointing his father, his family or his friends who know that the 'sky is the limit' for this young man who sees 'music as his mission.'
After Jesse returned home from schooling abroad, he reestablished a relationship with high school friend and young producer Kareem 'Remus' Burrell (son of Philip 'Fatis' Burrell). They began creating and composing music together also, which developed into a Movement as they shared similar views on the social state of Jamaica.
Blessed with a voice that captures the pain and hunger of a 'downtrodden' people; Royal's militant character and profound lyricism caught the heart of heralded reggae producer, Philip 'Fatis' Burrell. Fatis Burrell, affectionately called 'Father' had a great and pure impact on the 'old soul' of Jesse; as he credits him as an invaluable inspiration and one of the most influential individuals that he has ever encountered.
Working with musicians such as Sly Dunbar, Robbie Shakespeare, Donald Dennis, Earl 'Chinna' Smith and Monty Savory; Jesse is currently in the studio putting the final touches on his debut album with producer Kareem Burrell of the XTM.Nation. Jesse Royal also recently released his debut mixtape dubbed 'Misheni', which means 'The Mission' in Swahili.
