MONTEGO BAY, St James — Montego Bay-based rock singer Kriss Jonson and his management team, Cross the Line production, are set to release a music video tomorrow (Friday, October 5) for the promotion of his latest release, Bae Back, on the Cross the Line label.

Since his split from the group 4 Efeks in 2017, Jonson, whose given name is Christopher Thompson, has embarked on a solo musical career and things are shaping up.

According to his management team, headed by his mother Sandra Tapper, they are using all to market the entertainer, who many say is a Justin Bieber look-alike.

“I want him to be the next big thing coming out of Jamaica, so that's why I am utilising all the resources at our disposal to make him reach the top. I am using print, electronic and social media to highlight him to the world,” the confident mother said of her son.

Kriss Jonson was born in Kingston, but came to Montego Bay in 1998 and he attended the Green Pond High. While at school he was invited to sing at a student's birthday party, and that's where his real talent was discovered by the teachers, who afterwards constantly invited him to sing at school concerts.

During his early career he idolised Michael Jackson and now copies some of his dance moves during his performances.

His songs already released include: Call Me, S.O.S and Boyfriend.
