Chris Hills

Owner / Partner

 

Low-level music industry involvement began in 1986 and continued until 1995 when a change of career took place.  After meeting IJ Chris in Jamaica low-level activities began again in 2003.

2012 saw management extended with established artiste Kofi (ex Soul II Soul and Brown Sugar) with whom we worked, along with others, to create four of her own shows in London and Leeds as well as preparation for a future soul album and releasing some dance genre music she wanted to record.
During 2013-14, there was joint management with Rachael Boss of singer/songwriter Empress Chai (Fiona Forrest). Chai went on (along with her husband) to become Bunny Wailer's support act and backing vocalists until his recent passing. There are no song releases through us as they had their own label and publishing.

Front-line management services ceased in May 2017.

 

Support Services have been in place since 2010 and have involved artistes Chai, KyKySu, Kim Weston and Sahrya. 

Mid-2014 we were engaged with others in organising ‘Reggae Rumble’ at Cotton’s in Islington as a platform for emerging singers supported by established artistes. Some video footage is HERE on YouTube.

During the autumn of 2017, we were involved with arranging a UK visit by Kim Weston (ex-Motown) and a special 'Evening with Kim' show in Leeds.
In 2019, we worked closely with Sahrya helping her to set-up her own record label and publishing company.

Selected services will continue.

Some radio co-hosting with Scientist and others took place in 2015/16 with 'The Reggae Biz Talk Show' and in 2016/17 with General Culture and the 'World Music Show - Vaults' on Stockade Radio (links in side panel).
