Julian Marley has been around music all his life. Born in London in 1975, he has been blessed both by his father’s great talent and legacy and by the unique perspective that comes with an upbringing in a multicultural community. Since recording his first song at age five at the Marley family home in Kingston, Julian has become a skillful, self-taught musician, mastering the bass, drums, and keyboards.

In 1989 he released his first album, titled “Uprising” — also the name of his new band. He moved to Jamaica in 1992 and began to work with such reggae veterans as Aston “Family Man” Barrett, Earl “Wire” Lindo, Tyrone Downie and Earl “Chinna” Smith. His album, “Lion in the Morning”, is the culmination of his musical development to date, a conscious effort that reflects his growing maturity and musical sophistication. Collaborating on the album with Julian was the Ghetto Youths International production team founded by siblings Stephen and Ziggy. The family connection goes further: it was recorded at the newly renovated Marley Music studio at Hope Road in Kingston, the studio where his father created some of his most important and well-known work. While clearly reflecting his roots and heritage, the album is his however his own testament.

A veteran performer despite his youth, Julian has performed at Jamaica’s Sumfest and Sunsplash shows, and has toured in Japan, Brazil and Mexico. He and brother Damian were also featured as part of the “Marley Magic” North American tour in 1996. His current tour will include shows throughout the United States. Catch this young Lion now at a venue near you.

Julian’s new album “Awake” is in stores now.

$1 from each ticket goes toward the Ghetto Youths Foundation.
