Leroy Dehaney a.k.a. KROME
, is quickly making his mark on the global music scene. With his unique blend of Reggae, Dancehall, Hip-Hop and R&B, the multi-talented visionary has a vocal style that rivals most of the top talents to have come out of Jamaica. Although he grew up in the town of Port Antonio, home of other artists like Jah’ Apostle, Lloyd Parkes and Junior Marvin, KROME was born in St. Thomas, Jamaica. Inspired by his mother’s love for music KROME aligned himself with many of the local musicians and talent shows around numerous Jamaican cities.
Although Jamaica will always be "home", KROME believes that moving to the US has allowed him greater flexibility and opportunity to get his music to the masses. After years of fine tuning his musical talents which includes playing guitar, he was discovered by a US talent scout who immediately organized KROME's first tour of the US where his style instantly became a hot commodity. KROME has many collaborative ventures with world famous recording artist such as Jeff Majors and other entertainers which helped to create that sound that is loved so much by his listening audience.
Having used the alias "Leroy Dracula" to record for Jah Life Records, Twin Brothers, and Limelight Promotions, he produced hits like "No Money Nah Run", "No Jealous Man" and "Mind the Aids". Leroy would then change his name to "KROME" while recording his last album "Sting" for GMusic Group on the Street Katz label , manufactured in the USA by Sony BMG Music Entertainment, Inc.
The album was also named after the mega concert that brings together world famous recording artists from Jamaica, USA and the UK every year. With songs like "Zim Zim", which debut at #100 on the iTunes Ireland music charts, "Down the Alley", "Bust a Flex" and the hit single and title track "Sting", this album is currently being featured in mix-shows and college radio. Air-play on radio stations around the world, and especially blowing up Internet Streaming sites like MySpace, YouTube, Facebook and most Internet retail music stores like Rhapsody, iTunes, Amazon.com, e-Music and Napster to name just a few.
The next album is scheduled to be released in fall 2013 featuring his latest single "Midnight Caller", and is poised to surpass the popularity of "Sting" and establish KROME as one of the most consistent hit-makers on the current global music scene.
