Chris Marshall

Chris Marshall, born Adrian Christopher Marshall, was born and raised in St. Catherine Parish, Jamaica. He grew up surrounded by music, from jamming at home with his family after dinner to growing up and exploring the country’s many dancehalls. Sundays were a musical day in his household, where the family would come together and listen and dance to music on the radio.

Chris found himself influenced by Jamaica’s most recognizable artists like Richie Spice, Freddie McGregor, and Beres Hammond. His journey as a composer started when he bought his own computer and began experimenting with beat making. As early as high school, Chris could be found in different studios mastering his craft and bringing the sounds of the island to life with his music. The quiet and laid back artist found his voice in making music. Chris Marshall finally achieved his first success with the track that would eventually go on to become one of the best chart-toppers of 2006. Sean Paul’s “Temperature” gave Chris the credibility needed to elevate his career as a hit-maker for the modern dancehall sound that was taking over the airwaves. The song not only topped the Billboard Hot 100 Charts, but also won the 2007 Grammy Award for Dance Song of the Year. Over a decade later, Chris still puts forth the same amount of work and effort into everything he does. His goal is to continue creating music that is true to the message from his humble beginnings and the passion behind dancehall music that is heard around the world. He encourages others interested in following his footsteps to continue doing what they love and never give it up, especially if it’s music.

In 2019, Chris did a collaboration with international artist ANITTA on “Tu y Yo” which has accumulated 18 million views on YouTube and was featured on her 2019 album “Kisses.” In 2020, Chris released his first EP under Rich Music titled “Marshall Law”.
