A five-time Grammy-winning musician, actor, artist, activist and humanitarian, Ziggy Marley 

has established his presence on the public stage for over a quarter-century.  Which is why, 
perhaps, there’s a wisp of irony in naming his upcoming album Wild and Free, given not only the focused writing and recording of his fourth solo studio album, but also Ziggy’s concurrent involvement in an ambitious tour stretching through this spring and summer, as well as other projects in the realm of publishing and filmmaking.  And with the arrival of a new baby requiring his attention, it’s remarkable Ziggy is able to capture the energy to keep his sound wild and free!Ziggy has embraced the more traditional and familiar textures and rhythms of reggae, while further defining the unique artistic vision that sets him apart,” says producer Don Was.  “His quest to find his own voice within the framework of tradition is the real story of the album.”  In that quest, Marley finds company in the immense and varied talents of guitarist Takeshi Akimoto (Raya Yarbrough, Dry & Heavy), bassist Darryl Jones (The Rolling Stones, Miles Davis, Sting), keyboardist James Poyser (Eryka Badu, Common, Mariah Carey), drummer Carlton “Santa” Davis (Jimmy Cliff, Burning Spear) and percussionist Rock Deadrick (Ben Harper, Chicago, Kenny Loggins).
