      Bio

      As the oldest son of reggae icon Bob Marley, Ziggy Marley has carried on his father's musical legacy while becoming a reggae icon in his own right. From his beginnings with his siblings in the Melody Makers to his hugely successful solo career, Ziggy Marley has won five Grammys and sold out tour dates around the world.

      As the oldest child of Bob Marley, David Nesta "Ziggy" Marley often sat in on his father's recording sessions and tour dates, learning much from masterful teacher. His father gave him the nickname "Ziggy" as a child in reference to his son being like "a small joint." Ziggy, along with his siblings Sharon, Cedella, and Stephen, were featured on Bob's song "Children Playing in the Streets" and they soon formed the Melody Makers. The group released their debut album, Play The Game Right, in 1985, but critics were disappointed that the album didn't conform to Bob Marley's style of reggae. From that point on, Ziggy was marketed as the frontman in anticipation for a solo career and the band became Ziggy Marley and the Melody Makers. The group experienced success with their third album, Conscious Party, and continued their success with their next two albums, One Bright Day and Jahmekya.

      Ziggy Marley and the Melody Makers continued to play tour dates and release records until 2000, when the group disbanded and Ziggy embarked on his solo career. Ziggy Marley's solo career began to take off with his second album, Love Is My Religion, which continued to develop Ziggy's pop infused reggae style and won him his first solo Grammy. In 2009, Ziggy won another Grammy for the children's album, Family Time, which featured not only members of his family, but also music greats like Paul Simon, Toots Hibbert, Jack Johnson, and children's music star Laurie Berkner.

      Ziggy Marley's 2011 release, Wild and Free, features contributions from Woody Harrelson, Heavy D, and Ziggy's son, Daniel. Pre-orders of the album contained copies of Ziggy's acclaimed comic book, "Marijuanaman". His next record was a live album, Ziggy Marley: In Concert, which was filmed during his 2012 tour and went on to win the Grammy for Best Reggae Album. So too did his fifth studio album, Fly Rasta, which was released in 2014. Ziggy's next, eponymous album, was released in 2016 and shot to the top of Billboard's Reggae Albums chart, as well as peaking at 99 on the Billboard 200.
