Ras Kronik | Wild And Free
Soulful, (en)chanting, edgy
Everton Edwards also known as Ras Kronik is a singer/songwriter and producer with his finger on the cultural pulse of reggae music. His songwriting reflects upon the struggles of all mankind and the rewards that can be gained spiritually if one only believes in a power that is higher than man. He also writes about love won and lost. Whether it's love between a man and woman or the love of the Most High, he brings his message across with clarity and definition.
Ras Kronik's electrifying voice seems an amalgamation of many great voices in reggae – soulful, chanting, and edgy. Ras Kronik weaves the cultural lyrics of "old school" roots music with modern day experiences to create a unique listening encounter. Reggae-naked and raw is an apt description for Ras Kronik's musical style, in which he forgoes the frills of extensive remixes, overdubbing and other musical refinements.
"Wild and Free" is not 'yet another riddim release' as they are being released left and right these days, but a full-blown release of original material, and as such a true representative of what is being dubbed as #NewRoots.
