Kingston born Skip Marley, the grandson of Reggae legend Bob Marley, is determined to leave his own mark on the world. In 2015 he quietly stepped onto the scene releasing his debut single, “Cry to Me,” and it’s follow-up titled “Life,” from the Tuff Gong label. After signing briefly with Blue Mountain Music he later joined his uncles Damian and Stephen on their Catch a Fire tour which helped him to further hone his craft. He recently signed with Island Records where Ilya Salmanzadeh lended his talents to produce the lead single “Lions.” The revolutionary song rose to notoriety after appearing in the infamous, now banned, Pepsi commercial with Kendall Jenner. That single paved the way for the timely, reggae-pop anthem “Calm Down,” which promotes love over hate. He garnered new fans when he appeared on Katy Perry’s chart topping song “Chained to the Rhythm,” and his latest border and barrier-breaking track “Refuge,” from the same titled album, should solidify his placement as a rising star among the Marley clan, Reggae music and beyond.
