Stephen Marley
Stephen Robert Nesta “Raggamuffin” Marley (born April 20, 1972) is an American Jamaican musician, who is the son of Bob Marley and his wife Rita Marley. Stephen is an eight-time Grammy award winner, three times as a solo artist, twice as a producer of younger brother Damian Marley’s ‘Halfway Tree’ and ‘Welcome to Jamrock’ albums, and a further three times as a member of Ziggy Marley & The Melody Makers.

His 2011 album Revelation Pt. 1 – The Root of Life won the Grammy Award for Best Reggae Album in 2012.1 The follow-up, Revelation Pt. 2 – The Fruit of Life was released on July 22, 2016.2

In his self-produced solo albums Mind Control (2007), Mind Control Acoustic (2008), Revelation Part I: The Root of Life (2011) and Revelation Part II: The Fruit of Life (2016) Stephen has displayed artistic creativity previously associated with American legends such as Stevie Wonder and Prince; where the artiste composes and produces all the songs on his album, and plays a variety of the musical instruments himself.

On 3 April 2017, Stephen and Pitbull performed at The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on the main stage, playing their single, “Options”.34

Jo Mersa Marley
Joseph “Jo Mersa” Marley (born March 12, 1991 in Kingston, Jamaica) is a Jamaican American reggae artist.1 He is the eldest son of Stephen Marley and grandson of reggae legend Bob Marley.

He debuted in 2014 releasing, through iTunes and Spotify, an EP “Comfortable”. He also appeared on a Grammy-winning album Strictly Roots by Morgan Heritage.2 – Wikipedia

As the eldest son of Stephen Marley and grandson of Bob Marley, Joseph “Jo Mersa” Marley grew up surrounded by music. By the time he was four years old, Jo was appearing onstage alongside his father, his uncle Ziggy and aunts Cedella and Sharon (a.k.a. Ziggy Marley and The Melody Makers) and their children as part of the group’s rousing concert finales with Jo often taking the mic and chanting the lyrics to the Melody Makers’ biggest songs, much to the delight of their audiences. Born in Kingston, Jamaica on March 12, 1991, Jo moved to Miami at age 11 where he keenly observed his father and his uncle Damian as they created music in Stephen’s Lion’s Den studio. Back then school was the priority for Jo; traveling with Ziggy and the Melody Makers was reserved for school breaks and summer vacations, yet those experiences provided first hand opportunities for Jo to expand his musical aspirations beyond the performance stage.
