Born in Wilmington, Delaware, and raised in Kingston, Jamaica, Stephen began his career at a young age of 7 and an eight-time Grammy Award winner, three times as a solo artist, twice as a producer of younger brother Damian Marley. This amazing man has wasted no time and has continued to carry the torch of his father’s message of unity and preservation of true reggae music.
“We come to free the people’s minds,” says Marley, a multi-Grammy-winning singer, songwriter, and producer. “Only way you can free your soul is to free your mind. My father said, “No chains on my feet, but I’m not free, and then he come to 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.”
This most inspiring musician has so much love for music, his passion is felt through the track as it narrates a brief life journey of a boy with an old soul, truly you can hear Bob Marley coming through the vein in the music. Stephen’s inspirations and influences are named Shabba Ranks, Peter Tosh, and UB40. The music is completely heartfelt and relatable, as I too am one of those old souls.
