Revelation Part 1: The Root Of Life
Label: Tuff Gong P/S, Stephen
If Bob Marley were still with us, this is what his music would sound like. With a slow acoustic pace, Stephen offers soulful vocals eerily reminiscent of his father. Though mostly gaining accolades for his production work for brother Damian and the Bob Marley remix project Chant Down Babylon, Stephen blossoms as a vocalist and songwriter on his second solo album. Highlights include the single "Jah Army," featuring Damian Marley, "False Friends" and the heartfelt "Now I Know." With this quality reggae, Stephen is upholding the family name. Part 2 is slated to release in the fall of 2011.
