Ziggy Marley captures energy of young son for new album

Grammy-winning reggae artist Ziggy Marley has released his new family album, More Family Time.

The album is a follow up to his 2009 Grammy and Emmy winning album, Family Time.

To create the album, Ziggy aimed to capture the energy of his four-year-old son and put it into music form. The result will captivate children, while also keeping their parents engaged via his signature Reggae sound.

Ziggy has a number of friends featured on the album including Ben Harper, Sheryl Crow, Lisa Loeb, Tom Morello, Busta Rhymes,  Angelique Kidjo, Alanis Morissette, Stephen Marley, and Jamie Lee Curtis reading her new book.  

His children Judah, Gideon, Abraham and Isaiah also make special appearances, along with his puppy Romeo.

A portion of proceeds from the album will benefit Ziggy’s 501(c)3 URGE, which supports the education, social development and overall well being of the Chepstow Primary School and the One Love Youth Camp, both in Jamaica. 

Ziggy will also host a concert, drive-in style, on Saturday, October 24 at the City National Grove of Anaheim. There will be two sets, the matinee will be a kids’ focused set and the evening will be a more classic Ziggy performance. 

All cars, families and attendees will be socially distanced and the venue will follow strict COVID precautions.

Tickets will go on pre-sale on Thursday, 9/24 at 10am PT and public on-sale will begin on Friday 9/25 at 10am PT.
