Ziggy Marley

Ticket and event info: https://thestateroompresents.com/state-room-presents/ziggy-marley Ziggy Marley is an eight-time Grammy winner, Emmy winner, musician, producer, activist and humanitarian who has cultivated a legendary career for close to 40 years. The eldest son of Bob and Rita Marley, Ziggy has hewed his own path as a musical pioneer, infusing the reggae genre with funk, blues, rock and other elements through mindful songcraft. Equal parts master storyteller and motivational guide, he deftly explores issues from environmental awareness to self-empowerment, social injustice to political inequity, while returning again and again to the transformative power of love. A native of Kingston, Jamaica, Ziggy first sat in on recording sessions with his father’s band, the trailblazing Bob Marley and the Wailers, when he was ten years old. This organically led him, joined by his brother Stephen and sisters Sharon and Cedella, to become the Melody Makers. Launching in 1985 with Play the Game Right, they won their first Grammy for their third album, Conscious Party (1988), an all-around success produced by Talking Heads’ Chris Frantz and Tina Weymouth, which included the hit singles “Tomorrow People” and “Tumbling Down.”
