Info for Higher Place



Reggae singer Skip Marley carved out his own lane in the industry from his very debut. With multiple international collaborations already under his belt with the likes of Katy Pery, H.E.R., and more, Skip has already made a name for himself in some of the largest music markets in the world. While many artists from musical families often get stuck in the shadow of their ancestor’s legacy, Skip Marley is ready to start his own.

“I don’t really think about how I want to be perceived by people. They have their own projections. I just want them to see me as a fighter for good. A love warrior.” Skip Marley often speaks in this way—a rare combination of serious and cool. The Jamaica-born, Florida-based artist is mysterious and chill, but deeply connected to his craft and refreshingly self-assured. He’s authentic in a way most musicians these days could never claim to be; when he says he’s never thought about how people perceive him, it’s without any pretense or irony.

His sound follows suit, a reggae-hybrid that effortlessly blends eras, genres, and styles, while showing off Skip’s impeccable musicianship and poetic lyricism. His natural talent comes as no surprise—music’s quite literally in his blood. Skip is the grandson of reggae icon Bob Marley, and his songs pay homage to his deep family legacy.

“I want to spread my music to the people and help them unify,” he says. “I want people to take away a message of love, of looking at the way you are living and thinking where we can work to be or better and feel better. Whatever they’re feeling, I want them to be able to turn up my music and think, relax, and get good vibes.” It’s a radical idea maybe, but an essential one.

Skip Marley



Skip Marley
was exposed to the power of music from birth. The Kingston-born, Miami-raised singer/songwriter is both the grand-nephew of Marcia Griffiths and grandson of reggae icons Bob and Rita Marley.

Although reggae is at the root of his music, Skip says of his sound, “I’m coming from a new genera­tion, “blending influences and letting it come out organically in the music.” Referencing the Rolling Stones, soca, hip-hop and EDM artists in one breath, Skip doesn’t like to limit himself, instead he “just let ideas drop down on me and go with the flow.”

Deeply connected to his craft and refreshingly self-assured, Skip is authentic in a way most artists these days could never claim to be. His songs follow suit, confidently mixing genres, influences, and instruments while maintaining their important messaging. Those messages aren’t wedded to a particular moment in history, however. They’re universal and important, bringing the love his grandfather, Bob Marley, preached to a new generation.

“I want to spread my music to the people and help them unify,” he says. “I want people to take away a message of love, of looking at the way you are living and thinking where we can work to be our best. Whatever they’re feeling, I want them to be able to turn up my music and think, relax, and get good vibes.”

This album contains no booklet.
