Next generation Marley family member and musician, Skip Marley has been included in the GAP clothing company’s new online social media promotion campaign promoting their ‘1969 DENIM’ clothing line with people that “live the spirit” of those known for the style they wear.  “The Gap asked me what makes me feel most alive,” Skip explains about the video ad while shooting in the sunshine of California.  “Music Is Life” cited the young artist and that his grandfather Bob Marley and his uncles have preferred to be outfitted in denim spanning the generations.  Skip has had a impressive start to 2016 with stellar performances in Jamaica at the One Love Fest and Marley71 Celebration, the GAP’s 1969 Denim campaign and now he is prepping to shoot a video for his updated version of his grandfather’s classic “Three Little Birds” used in Sandals’ “No Worry” global ad campaign.

About Skip Marley: Skip Marley-Minto was exposed to the power of music from birth. The Kingston-born, Miami-raised singer/songwriter is both the grand-nephew of Marcia Griffiths and grandson of reggae icons Bob and Rita Marley. In addition to that, his mother Cedella Marley is one fourth of the GRAMMYaward-winning group, Ziggy Marley & the Melody Makers. Those strong musical roots gave him the fertile ground to develop his natural gift for creating and performing. The result is “Cry to Me”, Skip’s debut single on Tuff Gong International.

By the end of 2015, Skip was flying the flag high with two hit singles, a commercial, and his first national tour under his belt. The remix of his debut single “Cry To Me” reached number one on the EDM.com chart, and the original version was named one of the Top 15 songs for 2015 by LargeUp.com.  His follow-up single “Life” (taken from the Sly & Robbie album Reggae Power 2) has topped charts globally. Skip rounded out 2015 by putting a modern twist on his grandfather’s classic “Three Little Birds” for the new Sandals “No Worry” global ad campaign. The commercial is an instantaneous hit that has audiences calling for an official release of the track, signifying that “every little thing” about Skip Marley’s career is on track to bring us a third generation of powerful music and soulful messages.
