The youngest member of the Marley movement, 18-year-old Skip has just released a video for his debut single that he wrote and arranged, “Cry to Me.
“Cry To Me,” his debut single for Tuff Gong International, was written and arranged by Skip himself, and co-produced by Skip with Paul Fakhourie (Lauryn Hill, Stephen Marley, Damian Marley, Nas).
Skip is the first-born son of Cedella Marley, grandson of Bob and Rita Marley and grand-nephew of Marcia Griffiths.
Having grown up amongst reggae royalty, surrounded by Grammy-award winning uncles, Skip certainly does not have far to look for inspiration and guidance.
“Many people referred to my grandfather as “The Skipper” meaning the captain. My mother, Cedella, was fond of this name and I guess thought it was the right fit for I.” – Skip Marley told LargeUp.com
