“The better side of humanity, cannot let the side of humanity that push negativity and hatred be more willing,” Marley explained in a recent interview. “It cannot happen. It’s a battle of wills. We’ve got to have more will.” …..~


On his 2016 eponymous album, reggae star Ziggy Marley’s songwriting moved away from personal themes to political ones, calling for love and unity in the face of conflict across the world. This follow-up was recorded with global tensions higher than ever—which has seemingly only strengthened his belief in the power of positivity. Absorbing musicianship lessons he says he learned while working on the reissue of his father’s Exodus album in 2017, the Marley scion seeds rebel spirit into uplifting and fiercely melodic reggae, dismissing politicians with a stirring blast of horns on “See Dem Fake Leaders,” allowing piano and acoustic guitars to lead equality anthem “I Am a Human,” and championing solidarity over the title’s track’s sharply funky groove…..~


The oldest son of reggae legend Bob Marley and his wife Rita, Ziggy Marley was the natural heir to the throne left vacant by his father’s untimely death in 1981. Along with backing band the Melody Makers, a unit comprising his brothers and sisters, he successfully carried on the tradition of communicating the music’s message to a growing global audience, even scoring a U.S. Top 40 single in the process – a claim neither of his parents could make. Born David Marley in Kingston, Jamaica on October 17, 1968, he received guitar and drum lessons from his father, and began sitting in on Wailers recording sessions at the age of ten. In 1979, Ziggy, his sister Cedella, brother Stephen, and half-sister Sharon all joined Bob in the studio to record the single “Children Playing in the Streets.” Christened the Melody Makers, the four siblings continued playing together at family events, and even performed at their father’s state funeral. 

Marley was not even 17 when he and the Melody Makers issued their EMI debut LP, Play the Game Right. The burdens of becoming a second-generation star weighed heavily on the youth – who looked and sounded almost eerily like his father – and he allowed the record and its 1986 follow-up, Hey World!, to veer closely toward pop music, resulting in derision from reggae purists. Poor sales, combined with EMI’s public desire to market Ziggy Marley as a solo act, prompted Marley & the Melody Makers to jump to the Virgin label, where they entered the studio to record their masterpiece, 1988’s Conscious Party. Produced by Talking Heads’ Chris Frantz and Tina Weymouth, the album was both a critical and commercial smash, with the single “Tomorrow People” reaching number 39 on the pop charts. The follow-up, 1989’s One Bright Day, continued the Melody Makers’ artistic growth; it was also their best-selling effort to date, cracking the Top 20 and, like its predecessor, winning a Grammy. 

Marley & the Melody Makers resurfaced in 1991 with Jahmekya, another assured and creative effort. It sold well, edging into the Top 20, but failed to generate much radio or video airplay. Released in 1993, Joy and Blues barely charted, despite adding elements of contemporary dancehall (a showcase for Stephen’s rapping skills). The latter record was the Melody Makers’ last release for Virgin, and they moved to Elektra for 1995’s Free Like We Want 2 B. Fallen Is Babylon followed in 1997, and scored a third Grammy. Like his father, Marley eventually emerged as a leading political voice, and was named a Goodwill Youth Ambassador for the United Nations; at home in Kingston, he also founded his own record label, Ghetto Youths United, created to spotlight the next generation of reggae talent. 

In addition to the four siblings in the Melody Makers, three other Marley children – Damian, Julian, and Ky-Mani – also pursued careers in music. The music continued into the new millennium, as Marley released Ziggy Marley & the Melody Makers Live, Vol. 1 in fall 2000. Without the Melody Makers, Dragonfly was released as his first official solo album in 2003, but its 2006 follow-up, Love Is My Religion, was the one with the hit, as the album’s title track put Ziggy back on reggae radio throughout the globe. His 2009 effort, Family Time, was a charming children’s album, while 2011’s Wild and Free returned to the socially conscious reggae that launched his career. In 2012, he released his first comic book featuring the hero Marijuanaman, and followed it in 2013 with the live album In Concert. The diverse Fly Rasta followed a year later and featured a Melody Makers reunion thanks to guest appearances from Erica Newell plus Sharon and Cedella Marley. The album won Best Reggae Album at the 57th Grammy Awards. In 2016 he returned with his sixth solo – but first self-titled – album, which featured the single “Weekend’s Long.” Returning in 2018, Marley’s self-produced seventh album, Rebellion Rises, was directed toward themes of activism and social change. ~ Jason Ankeny….~


Eight-time Grammy Award-winning musician Ziggy Marley will release his seventh full-length solo studio album, Rebellion Rises, on May 18 through Tuff Gong Worldwide and it will be distributed in Jamaica and the Caribbean by Tuff Gong International. 
Fully written, recorded and produced by Marley, this new collection of music encourages people to stand together in activism through love. 
“The rebellion begins in the mind, the melody, and the music,” assures Marley. “We are a conduit of that. The rebellion is consciousness. Now the consciousness starts spreading, we become aware and we rise.” 
No track embodies this message better than the album’s title track and official first single Rebellion Rises. The song encourages its listeners to use the power humans have as instruments of positive change around the world. 
“The better side of humanity cannot let the side of humanity that push negativity and hatred be more willing,” Marley explained in a recent interview. “It cannot happen. It’s a battle of wills. We’ve got to have more will.” 

Rebellin Rises marks Marley’s first studio release in two years, following 2016’s critically acclaimed self-titled project which took home the 2016 Grammy for Best Reggae Album and marked his fourth consecutive debut at #1 on the Billboard Top Reggae Album Chart. Digital pre-orders will be available starting today. All digital pre-orders will include an instant free track of Rebellion Rises, which is also now available for streaming on Spotify, Pandora and Apple Music. 
This June, Marley will embark on the first leg of his North American tour with stops in a number of west coast markets including Napa, Seattle, Portland, and San Francisco. The tour will then make its way to Europe beginning June 29 where it opens in Legnano, Italy……~


Finding a connection to all humanity, it is a battle for love and peace, rising above the chaos. Absorbing that for a moment, the 8-time Grammy winning Ziggy Marley’s Rebellion Rises is set to drop through Tuff Gong Worldwide on Friday, May 18, 2018. 

Immersion in music from an early age has created a humanitarian, writer, musician, and artist that has crossed cultures and generations. Marley’s first children’s album, Family Time, won a Grammy Award for “Best Children’s Album” in 2009, while another children’s book, I Love You Too, earned the artist a 2012 Daytime Emmy for a special sharing the same name. Now, a battle-cry in Rock/Reggae style, Marley’s seventh studio album is also his first release in two years following 2016’s self-titled solo effort, which won Grammy gold for “Reggae Record of the Year.” 

This time around, the backstory for the 49-year-old’s latest began when his solo career created an opportunity to channel the soul of his father, now blending in Rock sensibilities after working with Flea and John Frusciante of Red Hot Chili Peppers on “Rainbow In the Sky” from 2003’s DragonFly. He also worked with Chris Frantz and Tina Weymouth of the Talking Heads with Ziggy Marley and The Melody Makers, and exposure to this is reflective in the groove created on this record. Rebellion Rises was written, recorded, and produced by Marley, who, surrounded by the power of the family and the ideology he was brought up with, shaped a musical revolution onto record. 

The method for delivering the message may change, but the solutions Marley offers up stay the same regardless of the artist’s medium. On Rebellion Rises, from the opening notes of “See Dem Fake Leaders,” it is obvious this is a political slasher-fest. The beauty here is the message. Now a father of four, Marley is pushing back in the name of love and unity; while fear might permeate every aspect of humanity, love can conquer all. A man of not just words but also action, Marley’s foundation U.G.R.E. (Unlimited Resources Giving Enlightenment) connects communities with children in need of help. 

Contrary to Childish Gambino and his message that has brilliantly exploded thanks to a video for “This Is America,” directed by Hiro Murai and produced by Jason Cole, this is a revolution that will smash together each belief system and arrive at a truth. Then there is “Storm Is Coming” with its lilting attempt at illumination, a call to batten down the hatches. Placing a lyrical focus on the earth and its destruction, this is a trip set to soaring guitar; placing Marley’s talents in the spotlight and offering up some great guitar-work to punctuate the message. 

Following it up with “World Revolution,” this cut is Marley at the songwriter’s finest. Putting the spotlight on the generations to follow, each illusion of chaos created by political, social, and religious institutions take all the lies and toss them out into a pile. Listeners can sort out their own truths, but Marley suggests that to build that wall of positivity, leave the crap behind. 

It would not be very hard to argue the point that humanity has forgotten what commonality and common decency are. Nearly halfway through the ten-song album, “Your Pain Is Mine” soars with this emotional connection; black or white, our skin color really should be irrelevant in a perfect world. Life is tough enough and this cut is a burden shared in song. Another link, “Change Your World” is a flashback to “Is This Love” by Bob Marley from his 1978 release Kaya, possibly the most influential Reggae love song, also released through Tuff Gong. Now set to take his place alongside his legendary father, this track could change listeners into Ziggy Marley lovers, provided they have not already been touched by the magic. 

Met with horns right off, “I Will Be Glad” is a celebration set to music. Simple and soothing, the truth is sung in a chorus of love, blessing listeners; this is beautifully simple, authentic vocals with hope the underlying wave. Following with “High On Life,” this cut is like sunrise at the ocean, its spiritual essence an undeniable rhythm; positivity breeds positivity. Feel the Jamaican sway of the ocean breeze with its salt air and crashing waves; it is here, alive in the music. 

The final three songs are a call to action: a coming together for dreams to come true set to a calypso beat with kettle drums and spoken word. With its message of peace, togetherness, and strength in numbers, there is a reason this album is called Rebellion Rises after all. Driving that point home, “I Am A Human” picks apart every reason society gives for wars, conflict, and social injustice. Musically rich instrumentation does not overshadow the message; rather each piece fits together, working perfectly to create a beautiful tapestry of sound. Stunning to the ears of this listener, this is a cut above the rest in its battle-cry of peace and love. 

Closing out, the title-track “Rebellion Rises” is a Pied Piper call to positive action; a collective conga line with reverb and bongos, simple statements to battle hate with love. Ziggy Marley is a humanitarian musician on a mission here: believing that love is a connective tissue and positivity will conquer all, as it will always spread faster than fear or hate. Starting with children and grooving up through the ages, love is the answer. 

Politically and socially relevant, Rebellion Rises is a war of music, creating peace with a purpose. For this, CrypticRock gives Ziggy Marley’s Rebellion Rises 5 out of 5 stars….Cryptic Rock….~
