Stephen Marley: "Music Is My Foundation and Way of Life, Only Thing Comes Close Is Soccer"

Stephen_Marley_Interview_Miami_Reggae_Festival_2013.jpg

Stephen Marley is a man of few words.

When asked what it's like to follow in the footsteps of his famous father, Bob Marley, a man who comes as close to deification as our popular culture will allow, Stephen replies with only a sentence fragment: "Rastaman vibration positive."

This response could be taken in a couple of different ways. Maybe by quoting one of his father's songs, he's showing reverence for the man. Or maybe he's annoyed about being asked a question that he will never escape, no matter his own personal accomplishments. And during Stephen Marley's multi-decade career, there have been many proud accomplishments.

At the age of 8, a year before his father died, Stephen sang lead vocals on the song "Sugar Pie" for his brother's band Ziggy Marley and the Melody Makers. He has produced albums by his brothers Damian and Julian. And of course, there are his own solo recordings, beginning with 2007's Mind Control, continuing with 2011's Grammy-winning Revelation Pt. 1: The Root of Life, and now culminating with the forthcoming sequel, Revelation Pt. 2: The Fruit of Life.

"The Fruit of Life is a natural extension of the root," Stephen says, "it features more collaboration work with some of the best hip-hop and reggae artists." Those collaborators include big names such as Wyclef Jean, Rakim, and the Roots' Black Thought. There is also the already-released song "Bongo Nyah," featuring his brother Damian and dancehall deejay Spragga Benz.

That is good question...I was looking forward to going to that Ky-Mani show in Oakland. I did see sometime ago that Stephen was going to be in San Francisco. I saw them both in 2011, I saw Ky-mani at the Independent and Stephen at the Fillmore.
