Jamaican singer Christopher Martin drops his brand new video for “I’m A Big Deal,” off his latest EP Steppin Razor and the chart-topping compilation Reggae Gold 2015. The video, which was shot in Martin’s native country and directed by Ruption for RD Studios, premiered on OkayPlayer’s LargeUp who says it has a “carefree, youth-friendly vibe” and is “all about the turnup.”
On the heels of outstanding performances at Jamaica’s largest annual music festival Reggae Sumfest, Brooklyn’s MLK Concert Series at Wingate Field and Toronto’s Reggae Festival, Martin continues to hit the road until the end of summer. He will retun to NYC over Labor Day Weekend for the West Indian Day festivities. See dates below.
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.
