BOB MARLEY

BOB MARLEY WAS A JAMAICAN SINGER-SONGWRITER, MUSICIAN AND GUITARIST WHO ACHIEVED INTERNATIONAL FAME AND ACCLAIM, BLENDING MOSTLY REGGAE, SKA AND ROCKSTEADY IN HIS COMPOSITIONS. STARTING OUT IN 1963 WITH THE GROUP THE WAILERS, HE FORGED A DISTINCTIVE SONG WRITING AND VOCAL STYLE THAT WOULD LATER RESONATE WITH AUDIENCES WORLDWIDE.

AFTER THE WAILERS DISBANDED IN 1974, MARLEY PURSUED A SOLO CAREER UPON HIS RELOCATION TO ENGLAND THAT CULMINATED IN THE RELEASE OF THE ALBUM EXODUS IN 1977, WHICH ESTABLISHED HIS WORLDWIDE REPUTATION AND ELEVATED HIS STATUS AS ONE OF THE WORLD'S BEST-SELLING ARTISTS OF ALL TIME, WITH SALES OF MORE THAN 75 MILLION RECORDS.

 

EXODUS STAYED ON THE BRITISH ALBUM CHARTS FOR 56 CONSECUTIVE WEEKS. IT INCLUDED FOUR UK HIT SINGLES: "EXODUS", "WAITING IN VAIN", "JAMMING", AND "ONE LOVE". IN 1978, HE RELEASED THE ALBUM KAYA, WHICH INCLUDED THE HIT SINGLES "IS THIS LOVE" AND "SATISFY MY SOUL". THE GREATEST HITS ALBUM, LEGEND, WAS RELEASED IN 1984, THREE YEARS AFTER MARLEY DIED. IT SUBSEQUENTLY BECAME THE BEST-SELLING REGGAE ALBUM OF ALL TIME.

“One good thing about music, when it hits you, you feel no pain.” – Bob Marley
