Lion House is proud to announce Julian Marley, Grammy nominated artist and son of the legendary Bob Marley, will hit Australian shores in May for his first headline tour in the region. Julian ‘Juju’ Marley is one of the great roots-reggae musicians performing today. The singer-songwriter, producer and humanitarian brings his 12 piece Uprising band for select shows along the east coast, performing selections from all releases including his Grammy Nominated third album, ‘Awake’, featuring Damian and Stephen Marley. It all started for Juju as a youth in 1987 when influential Wailers drummer Carlton Barrett was murdered outside of his home in Jamaica, Julian wrote two un-released songs , 'Uprising' and 'What They Did Wrong' in response to the incident. In ‘96, Julian released his debut entitled, ‘Lion in the Morning’. In ‘98, Julian contributed a vast range of musical elements to Lauryn Hill's revolutionary album, ‘The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill’. ‘A Time and Place’ followed in 2003 and in 2009, Julian Marley's career rose to new heights with the success of his Grammy award nominated release entitled, ‘Awake’. Julian explains, "There is spiritual energy from the ancestors in this album."
