In 1974 when Bob Marley went solo, on the brink of international stardom, he surprised the music community by choosing as his lead guitarist the soft spoken, American-born Al Anderson. It was Anderson’s stunning lead work on such classics as No Woman, No Cry, Dem Belly Full and Curfew (Three O’ Clock Road Block) that first alerted rock fans to the Wailers’ music. Over a billion dollars worth of Marley’s music featuring Al Anderson’s evocative guitar work has been sold worldwide. Al has also played with the legendary Peter Tosh, James Brown, Stevie Wonder, The Rolling Stones, Steel Pulse, Aswad, Inner Circle, Traffic and Ben Harper.

Junior Marvin joined Marley as singer/guitarist during the sessions for Exodus and Kaya albums, shortly before the band’s legendary appearance at London’s Rainbow Theatre in ’77. Junior has also to his credit worked with Ike & Tina Turner, Steve Winwood, Linda Lewis, T-Bone Walker, Billy Preston, Chris Wood in both the US and UK. In 2011, Junior Marvin departed the group.

Al Anderson is the sole original member of the Wailer's classic line-up in The Original Wailers. The reformed configuration includes Desi Hyson (Vocals/Keyboards), Steve Samuels (Bass Guitar), Paapa Nyarkoh (Drums) and Marty Batista (Keyboards and Organ) that carry forward the true spirit and realities of the original music and the message of “One Love”.

Reggae Superstar Ziggy Marley just released "Wild and Free", his fourth solo album. The 5-time Grammy winner has been on the music scene for over 25 years, starting with recording with his legendary father and his siblings.

Through the 80's and 90's Ziggy, along with the Melody Makers, released a number of highly acclaimed albums including "Conscious Party" and "One Bright Day." After two decades as the driving creative force behind The Melody Makers, Ziggy's first solo tour came in 2002. He followed that with the 2003 release of "Dragonfly" and the 2005 release of "Love is My Religion" a Grammy winner that further explored personal, social and political themes amid a fragrant mix of roots reggae, traditional rock 'n roll, African percussion and other varied musical elements.

The new album "Wild and Free" is a return to the roots of reggae's traditional and familiar textures and rhythms, while further defining the unique artistic vision that sets him apart. For more see www.mtlaurelpac.com

Five-time Grammy winner and notable philanthropist, Ziggy Marley, was born October 17, 1968 in Trenchtown, Jamaica. The eldest son of reggae legend Bob Marley and his wife Rita, he began his musical career playing with his father and siblings on the song “Children Playing in the Streets” in 1979. The siblings became known collectively as Ziggy Marley and the Melody Makers and together recorded nine albums between 1985 and 1999 including Grammy winners Conscious Party, One Bright Day, and Fallen is Babylon. The band also had a side focus on children’s entertainment, contributing to Disney’s album For Our Children, benefiting the Pediatric AIDS Foundation; Sesame Street, and Arthur, among others.

In 2001 Ziggy became more politically active, particularly as an advocate for underprivileged children while over the years continued his work in children’s entertainment. He served as Good Will Youth Ambassador for the United Nations, created the Jamaican label Ghetto Youths and founded U.R.G.E (Unlimited Resources Giving Enlightenment). He also remained active in many other philanthropic organizations and worked on numerous children and family programs including “Shark Tale”, “Family Matters” and “Charmed”.

In 2003 Marley released his first solo album, Dragonfly, to much critical acclaim, followed by Love Is My Religion in 2006 and Family Time in 2009, which earned him his fourth and fifth Grammy Awards. 2011 marked his 30th year of musical success, with no sign of it ?slowing down. This year saw the release of “Marijuana Man”, Marley’s first ever graphic novel as well as the release of his newest album, the Grammy-nominated Wild and Free, by his own label, Tough Gong Worldwide.

As the greatest living exponents of Jamaica’s reggae tradition, the Wailers have completed innumerable other tours, playing to an estimated 24 million people across the globe.

Their nucleus formed in 1969, when Bob Marley, Bunny Wailer, and Peter Tosh recruited the Barrett brothers - bassist Aston “Family Man” and drummer Carly - from Lee Perry’s Upsetters. Inspired by Rastafari and their ambitions of reaching an international audience, this is the line-up that pioneered roots rock reggae, and signed to Island Records in 1971.

  New CD "Better Things" by Headshine hits iTunes
 

Click to listen / buy the new CD: BETTER THINGS by HEADSHINE!The debut record "Better Things" by Headshine caught the attention of CBS radio. "Headshine, create music which conjures up these quintessential California moments with warm-bodied acoustics, Bob Marley-inspired reggae riffs, persuasive percussion, and a fearless fader scratching that gives their sound an understated edge. Much like the typical native Californian, Headshine is a musical mosaic of melodies effortlessly melting into each other, supported by luminous lyrics prompting the listeners towards self-compassion and positive action. This sound transmuted into feeling is the kind of experience that has prompted many a youthful daydreamer into finding their own dreams with the peaceful churn of the Pacific Ocean as their soundtrack." -KROQ

  Performer Magazine Reviews "Better Things" CD by Headshine
 

Performer Magazine - CD Review of "Better Things" by Headshine"Lead-singer and songwriter, RAS, more or less coined the term for his band. “Headshine” represents a good vibe when things automatically click and the moment is just right. It’s like catching the perfect wave - the feeling of being in-sync with yourself and the elements.

This synchronizing of sound and style is felt throughout the EP. RAS sings like an artist who has been through a lot and is only beginning to bare all. The Huntington Beach singer/songwriter has cultivated a surfer/acoustic sound with a touch of reggae and California sunshine.

In “Better Things,” the first track off Headshine’s EP, the message is straightforward and light. RAS sings in his charismatic voice, “Better things are coming my way/Never giving up/The best is yet to come.” While “Better Things” might have a touch of premonition to its lyrics, “One Spark” and “Devil in my Bed” are in tune with a more Latin-feel. “Devil in my Bed,” with a hint of Ricky Martin-suavity, is a fun and sexy song to listen to.

It has to be stated here: RAS’s song-writing is simple yet the final product is movingly so. His talent lies in his ability to craft life, love, and all the spaces in-between into his lyrics. His voice provides many textures to the music tapestry, so that there is not one word that fully encompasses his style. With the backing of major-label producer, Jim Perkins and with the premiere of his first single “Better Things” on San Diego’s 91X, things are definitely looking up for the singer/songwriter. RAS knew what he was talking about when he sang “the best is yet to come.” -Performer Magazine.com, writer: My Nguyen
