Baby Cham – Live & Direct from Jamaica
July 2, 2016 @ 9:00 pm - July 3, 2016 @ 2:00 am
Originally from Sherlock Crescent in Saint Andrew Parish, Jamaica, Cham’s career began in the early 1990s. The Miami New Times referred to his debut album Wow… The Story, released in 2000, as “the most anticipated album in years from any reggae artist”, and a Washington Post review of a live Cham concert in 2006 described him as “the man who may be the next Sean Paul — a dancehall artist who crosses over to the U.S. hip-hop market.”
Throughout his career, Cham has collaborated with many hip hop and R&B artists such as Foxy Brown, Alicia Keys, Carl Thomas, Shawn Mims, Mis-Teeq, Rihanna, Che’Nelle, Jentina, Akon, and T-Pain, Keke Palmer and many others.
Cham has for a long time worked with producer Dave Kelly. In 2012, he recorded with his wife, O, on the singles “Wine” and “Tun Up”. In 2013 he released the Kelly-produced single “Fighter”, featuring Damian “Junior Gong” Marley.
Cham’s third album, the Kelly-produced Lawless was released in June 2015. Featuring the single “I Am Hot”, the album was recorded in Florida apart from a collaboration with Mykal Rose and Bounty Killer, which was recorded in Jamaica.
Cham will perform with his backing band. Selecta Q45 on the decks. Winston’s Kitchen will be on hand with delicious Caribbean food!
