The second son of Bob and Rita Marley, Stephen Marley was born on April 20, 1972. He began his career at six-year old singing and dancing and with his siblings in the group The Melody Makers. Bob Marley in 1979 produced the groups first single “Children Playing In The Streets”.
While still a teenager he assisted in the production of The Melody Makers’ albums. The albums included their three Best Reggae Album Grammy winners . “Conscious Party”, “One Bright Day” and “Fallen Is Babylon” were the Grammy winners.
In 1993 Ziggy and Stephen founded Ghetto Youths International. Their purpose was to take control of their own music and help upcoming artists.
Stephen’s earliest solo production efforts for Ghetto Youths International included “My Altar”. The album was by his late grandmother, Cedella Booker. It was followed in 1995 by the Ziggy Marley and The Melody Makers single “Works To Do”. His younger brother Damian’s “10,000 Chariots” was also a hit. Both singles hit the Jamaican charts and generated much excitement.
