Be Our Guest: Damian Marley

Win tickets to Damian Marley on Oct. 17 at the Catalyst.


In 2005, Damian Marley released his debut album, Welcome to Jamrock, and immediately became a reggae sensation. The youngest child of the legendary Bob Marley, Damian continues—and furthers—his father’s legacy with songs of justice, rebellion and humanity. His latest record, this year’s Stony Hill, is a return to the spirituality of reggae music, and a reference to the uptown Kingston, Jamaica neighborhood he was raised in. “Coming from uptown doesn’t mean you can’t care about people who don’t live where you live,” Marley has said. “Jamaica is so small that nowhere is far.”
