Skip Marley makes North American live debut - 'Cry to Me' single, tops edm.com Chart
After climbing to the number one spot on edm.com, soulful Skip Marley has made his North American live debut as part of the 13-date Catch A Fire Tour, with fellow Marleys Damian and Stephen.
The tour got under way earlier this month in Garberville, California.
Earlier this summer, the teenage multi-instrumentalist and songwriter released his debut single, Cry To Me.
The single is a refreshing reminder of the incredible talent and strong storytelling sensibility that runs deep within the Marley blood.
Recently, Skip entered the studio with the legendary Jamaican rhythm section and production duo, Sly and Robbie, and plans to release more material later this year.
Skip has also inked an exciting new publishing deal to Blue Mountain Music Limited. This worldwide publishing agreement will cover all works from Skip's upcoming release for Tuff Gong International, including the debut single, Cry To Me, which has topped the edm.com chart.
Chris Blackwell (who famously signed Skip's grandfather, Bob Marley, to Island Records in the 1970s) commented, "I am really excited to be working with Bob's grandson, Skip. He has so much to offer."
"I want to spread positivity through music," said 18-year-old Skip.
Cry To Me is available on iTunes.
