Mind Control - Stephen Marley
Bob Marley’s second son, Stephen has been the mastermind behind his brothers’ distinctive sound, producing recordings for Damian Jr. Gong, Julian and Ziggy. But this year, he’s taken the plunge and followed in his father’s footsteps as a performer, as well as producer. The title track of his new album, ‘Mind Control’ will have you checking the credits just to make sure that they say STEPHEN not BOB Marley, because out of all his brothers, it’s his voice that sounds remarkably like the Legend’s. But this is reggae for a new generation and it’s spiced generously with flavors of funk, soul, pop and hip hop. On the first single, Traffic Jam, Stephen, Jr. Gong and Buju Banton jam over a beat box, telling the real life story of getting pulled over and busted for … what else? Ganja of course! Stephen carries his father’s legacy in his name. He was born, Stephen Robert Nesta Marley. He lives in Miami where he runs a recording studio called ‘The Lion’s Den’ and is father to eight sons and daughters! Key Tracks: Mind Control, Traffic Jam, Lonely Avenue, Let Her Dance featuring Maya Azucena & Illestr8.
