DAMIAN MARLEY


Damian "Jr. Gong" Marley, a multi-Grammy-winning Jamaican talent and the youngest son of the legendary Bob Marley, has forged a unique musical path.

Blending reggae with dancehall, hip-hop, R&B, and rock, he made history as the first reggae artist to win a Grammy outside the genre. His breakthrough album, "Welcome To Jamrock," clinched two Grammys for Best Reggae Album, and the Best Urban/Alternative Performance for the title track, which was also declared the best reggae song of the decade by The New York Times.

Collaborations with Nas and Skrillex, notably the platinum-selling "Make It Bun Dem," showcase Marley's diverse musical prowess. Rolling Stone hailed "Make It Bun Dem" as a monster mash-up of dubstep and dancehall."

"Stony Hill," his fourth studio album, secured another Grammy, followed by "The Kalling," winning Best Reggae Album at the 65th Annual Grammy Awards.

Recently, his rendition of George Harrison's "My Sweet Lord" received acclaim from Olivia Harrison and the George Harrison Estate.

As the co-founder of the renowned Welcome To Jamrock Reggae Cruise, Damian continues to shape the reggae scene, gearing up for its 9th annual voyage.

STEPHEN MARLEY


8x GRAMMY® Award-winning singer/songwriter/producer, Stephen Marley just released his new album Old Soul on September 15, 2023 - his first full-length project since 2016. Featuring a stellar line-up of special guests including Bob Weir, Eric Clapton, Jack Johnson, Ziggy Marley, Damian “Jr. Gong” Marley, Buju Banton, and Slightly Stoopid, the 14-track acoustic-inspired album is now available on all digital platforms via Tuff Gong Collective/UMe/Ghetto Youths International. Limited-edition double LP vinyl in translucent yellow and green, CD, 2LP standard black vinyl and merch bundles are available now at stephenmarleymusic.com.

Old Soul comes as a complete revelation. While grounded from the road during the COVID lockdown, Stephen set up a new studio on a remote family farm in the Florida countryside, holding nightly jam sessions in a converted garage. With a stripped-down ensemble comprising binghi drums, bass, acoustic guitar, and flute, Stephen played whatever he felt like — ranging from original compositions and reggae rarities with deep personal meaning to classics recorded by Ray Charles, Frank Sinatra, and The Beatles. “Irie vibration,” Stephen says of the sounds made together on the farm. The lion’s share of Old Soul was recorded during these “unplugged” jam sessions.

Even as the album showcases Ragga’s versatility, the message within his music remains consistent. “We come to free the people’s minds,” says Stephen. “Only way you can free your soul is to free your mind. My father say, ‘No chains on my feet, but I’m not free.’ And then he come say, ‘Emancipate yourselves from mental slavery.’ Anywhere the music calls us, we are going to be there to spread the message of love and unity.”

Old Soul explores a musical palette that spans a variety of cultures and genres alike, with hand-selected special guests furthering the spiritual journey that encompasses the album.

In celebration of the new album, Stephen embarked on an ambitious Old Soul Tour Unplugged 2023 through the Fall, and will continue to tour in support of the new album in 2024.
