Julian Marley - Awake -2009-
(Reggae, Roots, Hip-Hop)

From: London, England

Julian "JuJu" Marley's 3rd studio album 'Awake' is by far his most polished effort to date. He has been blessed both by his father's great talent and legacy and by the unique perspective that comes with an upbringing in a multicultural community. Julian has devoted himself to a life in music, mastering a variety of instruments and writing songs that reflect his dedication to spiritual upliftment and social change. All of these skills are utilized on 'Awake'. Produced by Julian Marley and his Grammy Award-winning brothers, Stephen Marley and Damian Marley. Julian's roots-reggae sound is supported by the street-energy infusion of hip-hop, bubbling dancehall, and a smooth combination of R&B. It is pretty cool to have each of the Marley children taking their reggae in different directions and also collaborating with each other, as is the case with this very solid record.
