Ziggy Marley tickets - Ziggy Marley Tour

Ziggy Marley Schedule

When you hear the name "Marley," it's bound to bring "reggae music" to mind automatically. Carrying on the traits of his eminent father, Bob Marley, eldest son Ziggy Marley most definitely inherited his dad's musical talent and passion for socio-political issues. A four-time Grammy Award winner, Marley started singing at a tender age and recorded tunes while his father was still alive.Although commercially, he has not been able to make a huge impact like his father; he has managed to carve out his own niche in the reggae music realm. Ziggy Marley still serves as one of the forerunners of the reggae genre today. To feel "irie," check out Ziggy Marley's latest tour. He can often be found at high-profile venues like the Dover International Speedway in Dover, Delaware; Carnegie Library Music Hall in Homestead, Pennsylvania; Pacific Amphitheater in Costa Mesa, California; and more.

Ziggy Marley Background

Born in Kingston, Jamaica, David Nesta Marley is the oldest son of the late, reggae icon, Bob Marley. Nicknamed "Ziggy" by his famous father, Ziggy has carried on the family's legacy on the music scene, establishing a name for himself as one of reggae's top artists along the way.His formative years were spent in Trench Town, known as one of Kingston's most impoverished areas, with his father trying to make a go of his band, the Wailers, and his mother, Rita, joining them in the mid-70s.Marley also was fortunate enough to spend some time stateside. His youngest brother, Stephen, was born in Wilmington, Delaware.

Besides Stephen, Marley and older half-sister, Sharon, and an older sister, Cedella, formed a band. The foursome cut their first song together in 1979. Penned by their father, "Children Playing in the Streets" spoke to the terrible conditions that many children of Jamaica lived in. The royalties from the song were given to the United Nations Children's Fund.

Following Bob Marley's passing in 1981, Ziggy Marley performed with Stephen at their father's funeral. Eventually, they established the Melody Makers along with Cedella and Sharon. All four of them lent their voices to their songs, but Ziggy Marley and Stephen Marley also took on the guitar. Taking the stage as the Melody Makers, the siblings issued their next single, "What a Plot" (1981).

Four years later, they came out with Play the Game Right, their debut album. The album didn't make an impression in the mainstream, and neither did their next album, Hey World! (1986) – although that album cultivated glowing reviews.

Eventually, the group billed themselves as Ziggy Marley & the Melody Makers. Conscious Party arrived in 1988. This album helped them eclipse mainstream audiences. The album infused elements of pop, rock and reggae. "Tomorrow People" was their breakout hit, which resonated with many fans. The album itself performed well on R&B/hip-hop and pop charts in the U.S. The album also claimed a Grammy for Best Reggae Recording.

One Bright Day (1989) carried the momentum of Conscious Party, earning Ziggy Marley & the Melody Makers another Grammy for Best Reggae Recording. The band churned out several more albums throughout the 90s, including the Grammy winner, Babylon Is Fallen (1997), before going their separate ways.

Ziggy Marley ended up forging on with a solo career. He released Dragonfly (2003) – his debut solo album. The album highlighted a number of guest artists, including John Fusciante and Flea of the Red Hot Chili Peppers. His sophomore solo effort, Love Is My Religion (2006) earned the Best Reggae Album at the 2006 Grammy Awards.
