Skip Marley, grandson of reggae legend Bob Marley, has been signed to Island Records label. The emerging reggae singer inked the deal with the iconic label in the US recently. The Jamaica Observer reports:
“We are so proud to have Skip Marley join the Island family,” said David Massey, President/CEO Island Records in a release. “His talent is extraordinary and his music reflects what the world needs right now. For Island to continue our history with the amazing Marley family is an honour. Skip’s unique style and point of view is going to set the world on fire.”
Skip Marley is son of Cedella Marley, daughter of Bob and Rita Marley and former Melody Maker.
The singer shared his vision for his music. “I want to spread my music to the people and help them unify,” he said. “I want people to take away a message of love, of looking at the way you are living and thinking where we can work to be our best. Whatever they’re feeling, I want them to be able to turn up my music and think, relax, and get good vibes.”[. . .]
