Jamaican reggae crooner Christopher Martin released his much-anticipated debut EP Steppin Razor (April 21) on VP Records. The 5-song digital-only release balances sweetness, swagger and sex appeal and showcases Chris’s versatility and vocal excellence.
Chris fires with formidable skill on each of Steppin Razor’s songs. The upbeat “We Are The Vibes” (produced by TJ Records) and the braggadocios single “I’m A Big Deal” (produced by Troy “Troyton” Hinds) get the party started. On the sultry “Secret Love (Creep)” (produced by ZJ Dymond), Chris sings “nah tell you fi sneak, but if you a go sneak, girl, sneak, come love me…and if your man find out and waan walk out, girl be with me.” His passionate vocals bring a renewed urgency to this well worn and (he admits) somewhat self-centered plea.
