Über Stephen Marley
Stephen's last name is both his greatest asset and his biggest obstacle. The benefits are obvious: wealth, access and an instant career. But having a demi-God as your father creates difficulties in finding your own path and earning respect. Stephen has managed nicely, first as a back-up singer for Ziggy Marley and the Melody Makers and then as a producer for Damian Marley. He was responsible for the latter Marley's biggest hits, including "Welcome To Jamrock" and "All Night." His production work infuses roots reggae with dancehall's most bombastic beats, resulting in thoughtful dance music. In 2006, he released the single "Traffic Jam," chronicling his arrest for marijuana.
