A multi-talented singer, songwriter and musician; Chris Stylez has amassed over 50 million loops on Vine, hit Spotify Viral Charts in more than 17 countries, Next Big Sound Trendsetters Chart for 25+ weeks, and is steadily becoming one the most exciting emerging artists piercing the music scene, with a polished tone and infectious sound.
The sensuous, memorable songs from his upcoming mixtape IN LATE, OUT VERY EARLY, explore Chris’s roots in reggae, R&B, and Soul, yet are guided to new landscapes through deft hands in contemporary production by ANYRIOT. “It’s soulful, and rebellious – this is me.”, says the east coast crooner.
Chris Stylez, né Allen, is of both Jamaican and Canadian decent, and is bilingual in French and English. He has always been heavily influenced by reggae, particularly from his father’s first cousin, Jimmy Cliff, and his granduncle, B.B. Seaton, who was the first reggae artist to be signed to Virgin Records. Chris studied Entertainment Business Management at the Toronto Film School, and currently signed to Paradigm Talent Agency.
