Ziggy Marley Expands Definition of Reggae on New Album

For Ziggy Marley, it would seem like there would be a simple path to take in the genre pioneered by your legendary father.

Crank out a new album every other year, accumulate the riches, play gigs across the planet for your adoring fan base.

And yet, with each new studio release, the oldest son of the legendary Bob Marley has continued to raise the bar by expanding the bandwidth of reggae. His tireless approach has garnered him six Grammys for his pop-reggae music, and may garner him another soon.
