Biography

Julian Ricardo Marley, ⋆ 4 June in London is a British reggae musician and singer, son of Bob Marley and Lucy Pounder. He is a member of the Rastafarian house The Twelve Tribes of Israel . His childhood was spent between England and Jamaica, and he learned to play the keyboard, drums, bass, guitar, and various percussion instruments. Together with his brothers Ziggy Marley and Stephen Marley , Julian became an active partner of Ghetto Youth International, a production company, in 1989. He has released three albums: Lion In The Morning (1996), A Time & Place (2003), Awake (2009)

For Julian Marley, music is life, life is music, and both are blessings from above. “From a small age music has been there in my life. It’s just natural. And it is with the inspiration of the Most High that I create my songs,” he explains. Julian’s development as a singer/songwriter began when, at age five, he recorded his first demo tape, a version of his father’s classic composition, “Slave Driver,” at the Marley family’s Tuff Gong studio in Kingston. Since that auspicious beginning, Julian has devoted himself to a life in music, mastering a variety of instruments and writing songs that reflects his dedication to spiritual boost and social change.

The 90s were a watershed period for the young artist. During these years, Julian formed his own band (the Uprising band), released a critically acclaimed album (1996’s Lion in the Morning, on which he wrote or co-wrote all the songs) and toured the world, both as a solo performer backed by Uprising and as a member of Ghetto Youths International, a musical collective whose core members are Julian and his brothers, Stephen and Damian Marley.
