An acclaimed singer, songwriter, musician and producer, Stephen Marley is a five-star general in Jah Army's ongoing offensive to uphold the integrity of reggae music. Stephen has won seven Grammy Awards for his work on various Marley family projects, including two Best Reggae Album Grammy nods for his self-produced solo efforts "Mind Control", which debuted atop Billboard's Reggae Album Chart, and "Mind Control Acoustic", a record-setting tally for a Jamaican artist.


The second son born to Bob and Rita Marley, younger brother to Sharon, Cedella and Ziggy and mentor to brothers Julian, Ky-mani and Damian, Stephen's acceptance of the responsibilities inherent within his exalted familial legacy is evidenced by the consistent excellence that distinguishes his various musical endeavors. Stephen's third self produced album "Revelation Part 1: The Root of Life" (Ghetto Youths/Universal Republic), which will be released on May 24th, was conceived as a celebration and preservation conduit for roots rock reggae, insuring that the music's regal template is maintained throughout the 21st century.


Stephen achieves that objective with 14 soulful, often times soul-bearing tracks that never sacrifice rhythmic purity in deliverance of their powerful messages: "Revelation Part 1: The Root of Life" provides encouragement for the struggling masses ("Working Ways"), depicts the harrowing residual effects of slavery ("Old Slaves"), evokes the sorrow of rejection ("She Knows Now"), and conveys the disappointment of "False Friends", the gravity of these themes offset by exquisite melodies and the subtle shadings of their musical accompaniment, as coordinated by Stephen's production expertise. Conceived as a two part project, "The Root of Life" will be followed by the release of "Revelation Part 2: The Fruit of Life", due in Autumn 2011, which features an array of styles that have emanated from reggae's core.

"Reggae music has influenced hip-hop and so many other kinds of music," Stephen reasons, "so `The Fruit of Life' will be a more open, eclectic kind of record. There will be songs for the club; dancehall reggae will be there, love songs in there, but it will remain conscious good music that you can always take something positive from."


What can be said about this Album that was not mentioned already. The whole Album will win you over from the very 1st song to the last. In my opinion the stand out tracks are Tight Ship, No Cigarette Smoking, False Friends, Break us apart and Jah Army.
