With another son of Bob Marley leading the torch that “Tuff Gong” has left behind, there is no doubt that the legacy of reggae music that Bob has left with us continues to expand through his children. In this case, we’re talking about Stephen Marley, who much like most of his family members, also pursues a full-time career in reggae music.
In his early days, he was a part of the Ziggy Marley & The Melody Makers that put out several successful albums in the eighties, but his skills as musician is just part of the story as he has also undertaken the role as a producer during his career, and which is also one of the reasons why he has five Grammys to his credit.
Ever since he began performing at the age of eight with The Melody Makers, the new millennium found Stephen combining efforts with his brother Damian to release “Welcome to Jamrock” that was not only commercially successful but was also considered a critical success as well.
Since then on, his producing efforts have gained from strength to strength, in producing more and more music with several renowned reggae artists but in particular with his younger brother, Damian.
And ever since he released his debut album in 2007 titled “Mind Control”, he has also dedicated his efforts to touring with notable artists such as Snoop Dogg and Slightly Stoopid as well as releasing his latest single titled “Jah Army”.
