ZIGGY MARLEY - Rebellion Rises 2018 TourSunday, September 16, 2018
Music supplies the soundtrack to real revolution.
The strains of guitar chords, drum beats, and vocal crescendos remain indistinguishable from those of the winds of change. Recognizing this truth, GRAMMY® and EMMY® Award-winning singer, songwriter, producer, humanitarian and visionary Ziggy Marley infuses the spirit of revolution into his seventh full-length solo offering, Rebellion Rises [Tuff Gong Worldwide].
Throughout the record, he encourages the people to stand in solidarity together.
“Every song speaks to the rebellion, but the word ‘love’ is also in a lot of them,” Marley affirms. “Love is the foundation. This entire album is a message to the best side of humanity. It’s a rallying cry and encouragement for us to stand up. When we do, our actions will be felt. We will change the direction of this world instead of what we see happening today. We will make it better, but we have to do more. We have to take a stand. We have to get more active. No matter what the fake leaders say, we’re going to love one another first.”
The message resounds throughout every fiber of the track. Recorded primarily at his Los Angeles home studio during 2017, Ziggy threads together a cohesive vision steeped in reggae tradition, yet markedly progressive and forward-thinking. In many ways, it represents every side of the iconic artist within one dynamic, diverse, and definitive body of work.
“It’s a good representation of everything about me,” he affirms. “It has the elements of the past and the future. It grooves nicely. Things change naturally. We don’t think about it too much; we just make it happen. That is the most beautiful creation. I’ve learned something from every experience and project. This is the next version of myself as I continue to grow and expand.”
If anybody can incite change through song, it’s Ziggy. In fact, it’s in his blood. For as much as he upholds a family tradition that began with his father Bob Marley, he’s also blazed a trail of his own. After eight records with The Melody Makers and three GRAMMY® Awards, he kicked off a legendary solo career in 2003 with Dragonfly. He impressively garnered the GRAMMY® Award for ‘Best Reggae Album in 2006 (Love Is My Religion), 2013 (In Concert), 2014 (Fly Rasta) and 2016 for the self-titled Ziggy Marley – which marked his fourth consecutive debut at #1 on the Billboard Top Reggae Album Chart.
So, what does revolution sound like in 2018 and beyond? It sounds like Rebellion Rises.
“I hope people enjoy it,” he leaves off. “When you enjoy it, everything else will come after. The majority of people are good on earth. I know this. We are more powerful than any political, religious, racist ideology. That’s what this is. I want this album to help be that motivating voice for the majority of people on earth.”
