A six-time Grammy winner, Emmy winner, humanitarian, singer, songwriter, and producer, Ziggy Marley has released 12 albums to critical acclaim. His early immersion in music came at age 10 when he sat in on recording sessions with his father.

Ziggy's first solo album, Dragonfly (RCA Records), was released in 2003. His second solo release, Love is My Religion (Tuff Gong Worldwide), won a Grammy in 2006 for "Best Reggae Album." His third solo album, Family Time (Tuff Gong Worldwide), scored him a 5th Grammy Award for "Best Children's Album." In 2011, Ziggy released his critically acclaimed fouth studio album Wild And Free, which earned him a Grammy nomination. He also released his first comic book, entitled MARIJUANAMAN.

His 2012 live album Ziggy Marley in Concert earned him his sixth Grammy Award for "Best Reggae Album." To coincide with the release of his latest album Fly Rasta, Ziggy is releasing on April 15, 2014 his debut children's book "I Love You Too," a co-production of Akashic Books and Tuff Gong. The multicultural picture book is based on one of Ziggy's most beloved songs of the same title from his Grammy Award-winning album Family Time, which explores a child's relationship with parents, nature, and the unstoppable force of love.
