The youngest son of Reggae legend Bob Marley, Damian "Jr. Gong" Marley garnered his own place in music history when he became the first ever Reggae artist to win a GRAMMY outside of the "Reggae" category, taking home an award for "Best Urban/Alternative" performance for his title single, "Welcome To Jamrock". The acclaimed 2005 breakthrough disc Welcome To Jamrock, also won a GRAMMY for "Best Reggae" Album. Marley has been shaking up stages all over the world for the past few years, first in conjunction with his Distant Relatives project, and then when he went on to partner with Skrillex for their groundbreaking track "Make It Bun Dem", which Rolling Stone called "a monster mash up of dubstep and dancehall. "Damian is also working with his brothers Stephen and Julian under their Ghetto Youths International Label, to discover, develop and sign gifted artistes by applying their musical talent and vast experience to create new and different styles of music. Damian is currently in the studio working on his upcoming solo album.
