Ziggy Marley

A seven-time Grammy winner, Emmy winner, humanitarian, singer, songwriter, and producer, Ziggy Marley has released twelve albums to much critical acclaim. His early immersion in music came at age ten when he sat in on recording sessions with his father, Bob Marley. As front man to Ziggy Marley and the Melody Makers, the group released eight albums that garnered three Grammys, with such chart-topping hits as “Look Who’s Dancing,” “Tomorrow People,” and “Tumbling Down.” Ziggy’s first solo album, Dragonfly (RCA Records), was released in 2003. His second solo release, Love is My Religion (Tuff Gong Worldwide), won a Grammy in 2006 for Best Reggae Album. His third solo album, Family Time (Tuff Gong Worldwide), scored him a fifth Grammy award for Best Children’s Album. In 2011, Ziggy released his critically acclaimed fourth studio album Wild and Free, which earned him a Grammy nomination, as well as his first ever graphic novel entitled Marijuanaman. Ziggy Marley Organics, a GMO-free product line including flavored coconut oils and hempseed snacks, was started in 2012. The products are distributed throughout the US and are available in over 1,000 stores nationwide. His 2012 live album, Ziggy Marley In Concert, earned him his sixth Grammy award for Best Reggae Album. Ziggy also recently released his debut children’s book I Love You Too, a coproduction of Akashic Books and Tuff Gong Worldwide. The multicultural picture book is based on one of Ziggy’s most beloved songs of the same title from his Grammy Award–winning album Family Time, which explores a child’s relationship with parents, nature, and the unstoppable force of love. Ziggy’s fifth studio album, Fly Rasta, was released in April 2014 to mass critical acclaim and gave Ziggy his seventh Grammy win for Best Reggae Album in February 2015. His latest book is the Ziggy Marley and Family Cookbook.
