In a new interview with WWD, Marley shared that, despite coming from a famous Reggae family, he doesn’t feel constrained by the international genre. “I’m free, music is free, my root is reggae music. Reggae is the root that extends into the tree, and branches into different things. I sing songs I like, and songs I feel.”[bctt tweet=”Grandson of Bob Marley, Skip Marley surfaces with his musical debut including features from Jr. Marley in ‘Higher Places'” via=”no”]
