Junior Marvin Background:
Born in Jamaica, Junior Marvin moved to London as a child, where his love of both acting and music was nurtured. He appeared in the Beatles’ film “Help”, which was followed by a number of other television appearances. Meanwhile, Junior served his musical apprenticeship in America by playing with the likes of Blues Legend T-Bone Walker and Ike & Tina Turner. He quickly earned a reputation as an innovative and expressive blues/rock guitarist. Back in England, he played with bands such as Herbie Goins & The Nighttimers, Blue Ace Unit and White Rabbit.
On February 14, 1977, Junior was invited to join both Stevie Wonder & Bob Marley & The Wailers. His schoolmates and musician friends chose Bob Marley because they were both Jamaicans & the rest is history. Junior first appeared on “Exodus” with Marley and The Wailers and it was voted “Best Album of the 20th Century” by Time Magazine. He was in every Bob Marley and The Wailers Albums from then, on. Since Bob’s passing in 1981, Junior has put out four albums with The Wailers: ID, Majestic Warriors, Jah Message and My Friends (Live).
In addition to working with Bob Marley, Junior Marvin has also worked & collaborated with artists such as Burning Spear, Alpha Blondy, Bunny Wailer, Israel Vibrations, Culture, The Meditations, Beres Hammond, The Congos, O.A,R. and SOJA.
