Julian Marley’s father is the internationally acclaimed reggae artist Bob Marley, whilst his mother is Barbados-born Lucy Pounder. Born in London, England on June 4, 1975, Julian recorded his first demo at the Marley family home in Kingston, Jamaica at the tender age of five.
His studies in music began under influential reggae stars such as Carlton Barrett, Earl “Wire” Lindo, Tyrone Downie, Aston “Family Man” Barrett and Earl “Chinna” Smith, all of whom inspired the then fledgling song-bird.

In light of this, it is no wonder that Julian is now a revered artist of his own back. The acclaimed singer-songwriter, producer, roots-reggae musician and humanitarian is a Grammy Award Nominated self-taught musician mastering the bass, drums, guitar and keyboards.

He has played around the world with his band, The Uprising, has been involved with a series of ‘Africa Unite’ performances that started in Ethiopia and touched down in Ghana and Jamaica as well as, at the request of the Jamaican government, Julian Marley and The Uprising performed during the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing, China, and celebrated along-side Jamaica’s Gold medal-winning runner, Usain Bolt. 

In 1996, Julian released his debut entitled Lion in the Morning, which launched him into the public eye and since then he has released great works like Awake, which took home the award for ‘Best Album of the Year’ at the International Reggae and World Music Awards (IRAWMA) in New York City.

Julian has also contributed a vast range of musical elements to singer Lauryn Hill’s Grammy Award winning album, The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill, and also joined his siblings Stephen, Cedella, Damian, and Kymani to contribute a version of the single, ‘Master Blaster’ for Stevie Wonder’s tribute album entitled Conception: An Interpretation of Stevie Wonder Songs. As such, all this means that Julian Marley ranks higher in the consciousness movement of music than most reggae artists recognized today.
