4th World

Primarily a reggae band, 4th World originated from Vieux Fort, Saint Lucia, and is considered one of the best reggae bands in the Eastern Caribbean.

 

4th World’s debut album, Can’t Stop Us, has been described as an “authentic brand of reggae music that takes you to the world of Steel Pulse, Third World, Peter Tosh and Bob Marley; but it is reggae music with a difference.

 

Born in Saint Lucia on October 14, 1985, Chrycee’s love affair with music began at an early age. Growing up with a DJ father, she was constantly surrounded by music; so it’s no wonder that even when she was just a tot, she’d take centre-stage in her family living room—remote control mic in hand—singing along to the voices of internationally-acclaimed artists! In time, Chrycee transitioned from living room performances to school talent shows, and at age 15, she began to regularly sing solo at church. Filled with melodies of her own and a burning desire to express herself through poetry and lyrics, it was also around this time that Chrycee started nurturing her song writing talent.
