Christopher Ellis, Roots Reggae and R&B crooner continues to share his soulful voice and poetic lyrics with his latest release, ‘Stick Together’.
The single, released by Ghetto Youths International, is a reggae rub-a-dub fused track and is produced by the Grammy award-winning producer, songwriter, and artiste Damian “Jr Gong” Marley.
The groovy reggae song is said to play well on sound system culture and carries the message of unity and community.
‘We Stick Together’, highlights music as a universal language that breaks down barriers and brings people together. While paying homage to sound system culture, in which DJs and MCs play music through large, portable sound systems at events, the culture shares a sentiment of togetherness.
With lyrics such as, “There’s no trouble on the street, all the girls look neat, sun shines all day, rub-a-dub on’s repeat, reggae music sweet, dance keep same way”, Ellis masterfully describes the sound system atmosphere.
Christopher Ellis was born the youngest male child to “The Godfather of Jamaican Rocksteady”, the late Alton Ellis and Sigma Ellis.
Talented in his own right, the soulful musical artiste has been astounding audiences with his incredibly natural, smooth vocal stylings since the age of 11.
However, it was after a chance encounter with Stephen Marley, that paved the way to his professional music career. After a coveted invitation from the multi-GRAMMY winner, Ellis joined Marley at renowned King Jammy’s studio and delivered his first single entitled, ‘End of Time’, which is a moving, soul-stirring track that features vocals by Stephen Marley and Jah Cure.
The song was inspired by Alton Ellis’ rendition of ‘You Made Me So Happy’.
The opportunity of working with the Marley family continued with Stephen Marley and Damian Marley via Ghetto Youths International.
In addition to ‘End of Time’, Ellis has released works such as his debut EP “Better than Love” which was released in 2013, and the hit singles “End of Time” (2013), “Here We Are” (2017), “Only Want You Naked” (2019), “Still Go a Dance(“2020), and “Rub A Dub” (2022).
