Veteran Reggae Artist Tony Chin Releases new album Karma



Tony Chin, a veteran reggae performer and founding member of Soul Syndicate, has released his eighth solo album, "Karma." The album was inspired by the current status of the globe. Despite the rise of war, hunger, and environmental challenges, as well as governments' greed and apathy, Tony believes karma will triumph in the end.


To balance out the gravity of the remainder of the record, Tony begins with "Ring A Ling," an exuberant, old-school "get you up on your feet" tune.


Tony Chin is a true founding father of reggae music, with a music career lasting over 40 years. Tony was born in Kingston and raised in Trench Town and Greenwich Farm. His career began in the rocksteady era and moved into reggae in the 1970s as a founding member of the Soul Syndicate band, the premier studio and stage band during reggae's Golden Era.

It's difficult to think of a chart-topping song on which Tony Chin did not perform or a producer or singer who did not have Tony Chin on board for musical composition and backing.


Tony worked with producers such as Bunny Lee, Niney the Observer, Lee Scratch Perry, Joe Gibbs, Duke Reid, JoJo from Channel One, Randy's Records, Miss Sonia Pottinger, and others to create music for Dennis Brown, Burning Spear, Big Youth, Gregory Isaacs, Johnny Clarke, Don Carlos, Ken Boothe, Max Romeo, the Melodians, the Mighty Diamonds, Freddie McGregor, Judy Mowatt, and countless others.
