Golden Chyld - Once More

Golden Chyld, though a seasoned artist, possesses some of the most refreshing sounds of reggae/dancehall vibes emerging from Canada. Born to Jamaican-Chinese parents and raised in between Canada & Montego Bay, Jamaica, Golden Chyld was fortunate enough to grow up in a musically inclined family, that raised him on culture, brotherhood, and respect.   In his teenage years, Golden Chyld formed a rock band with a childhood friend called “The Tribe” which widened his musical range and made him eager to delve into other genres. He later joined his brothers’ band, Leejahn as a percussionist, and in 1995 the band was nominated for the Juno Awards’ Reggae Recording of The Year. Golden Chyld took this time to develop his sound and writing skills and would soon work his way up to lead vocalist in his brothers’ later formed band, Chinatown.   Eventually transitioning into a solo performing artist, he dedicated himself to writing, producing, and making music that would inspire the younger generation and teach them how to spread their light.   His records like “Joanna Wine” and “Cruise Control” sparked interested in the reggae / dancehall community which garnered a wide interest in his music and gained him a loyal and supportive fanbase eager for more music from this conscious and versatile artist. Golden Chyld’s first full-length album entitled Alchemy is set to be released in early 2023 which features his newest release “Once More”.  With recent world struggles and the rise of mental health issues and despair since covid, the song speaks to showing gratitude for the simplicities of life. “After the past few years we’ve all had, it is imperative not to lose sight of what is truly important”, says the singer.  “I look forward to sharing Alchemy to those open to listening, with the aspiration that this collective of inspiring and uplifting songs within the album creates a sense of hope and healing for the listeners and supporters.”
