Excerpt: When Julian Marley was about to perform his seventh number of the night “On the Floor”, he stepped down from the stage and offered the audience to join him. This proved to be the key moment of the concert, as the audience who were glued to the seats until then suddenly broke free and started to dance and sing with Julian. He might have been equally surprised to see the Bangladeshis' enthusiasm and interest in reggae music.
Excerpt: And when Julian entered the stage through the right wing of the stage, he came along in a rhythmic fashion that Bob Marley was known for. There were two ladies to Julian's left to produce chorus all the time. Bob used to perform with three ladies known as 'I Threes', including Julian's step mother Rita Marley.
Excerpt: And Julian, who vowed to perform some good reggae numbers - to create love through celebrating his father's songs, in the end - left his audience fulfilled.
Excerpt: Julian Ricardo Marley, a seasoned roots Reggae performer, is a multi-talented musician, writer, and singer. Born on June 4, 1975, in London, Julian is the only British-born Marley son.
Excerpt: No longer a shy introvert, Julian is charming, confident, and well spoken. He comes with a message of motivation and inspiration. When answering questions, he often uses the “royal we,” a term that denotes acting conjointly with God/Jah. Here, in his own words, Julian allows us into the world as JuJu sees it – with love, hope, vision, and his goals for the future.
Excerpt: MPQ: How would you describe your music in three or four words?
JM: Positive. Uplifting. New Roots…like we’re the new generation of today. Authentic – it’s still roots, still new, but it’s still fresh. (laughter)
Excerpt: MPQ: If you could change one thing, anything, about the music business, what would it be and why?
JM: What would I change or what would I add? I think I would add…what I’d really love, and what we really need, is… I would open a school inna Jamaica, or anywhere in the world, and we’re going to be learning Jackie Mittoo, because everyone needs to learn this stuff. Even if I play Jackie Mittoo to someone, it blows their brains. They can’t believe the chords and the phrases, and I say whoa, cuz I know this stuff when I was like high as my knee. So that’s like something, like, OK, you need that? I’d rechannel it, reteach these young musicians, [teach them] about Eric Rickenbacker Frater, an original Studio One guitarist in Jamaica. He played with our father on a couple of albums.
