GRAMMY Nominated Julian Marley & The Uprising Embarks on As I Am Spring 2019 East Coast Tour

On May 8th, 2019, backed by talented The Uprising band, the recording star will kick off the tour in Virginia and perform some of his classic hits amid music from his noteworthy hit album featuring such hits as “Are You he One“, “Straighter Roads” and “Hey Jack“. Known for his memorable stage presence reminiscing of his iconic father, the late great Bob Marley, Julian “As I Am” East Coast Tour journey will bring reggae vibes to New York, Massachusetts, Delaware, New York, DC and conclude in Connecticut.

I love music, it is my life, touring and performing for the fans is something natural for me. Having new music it’s only right for me to deliver it personally to them. I appreciate and love the support from everyone that streams my music, I don’t take it for granted, so this is a way for me to thank them in person, one by one. I pray that when I take the stage, they can feel my energy, they can feel my gratitude.” – Julian Marley

A Ghetto Youths International & Zojak World Wide release paired with esteemed executive producers, and producers Julian Marley, Damian Marley & Stephen Marley and executive producers Aaron Mahlfeldt & Zoe Espitia,, “As I Am” album is available worldwide http://smarturl.it/JulianMarley

Julian began recording As I Am at Kingston’s Tuff Gong Studios… From that initial session, Julian has crafted a heartfelt, diversified album that honors his love of live instrumentation and conveys the musical passion he heard in his earliest influences.” – Patricia Meschino for Billboard Magazine

Covering a wide spectrum of musical beats and themes ranging from raw one drop roots, reggae and ska it’s an album filled with upliftment, inspiration, a deep sense of spirituality and questions unanswered, questions like why we are living in a war zone home and abroad at the hands s of politicians? “ – DJ 745 for World A Reggae

“The lyrics are from the perspective of roots reggae music that is reaching out around the world bringing the message of hope and freedom, with memorable lines like “Travel every ocean, ocean, with them redemption songs”. This is a great opening track with a catchy beat and a wicked bass line. “Hey Jack”, the second track is about friendship and trust, a common theme nowadays in many reggae songs…” – Jen Cheshire for Island Stage Magazine

This may explain why a couple of tracks from the new album feature Jimi Hendrix style rock guitar, although it’s skillfully integrated within the whole Julian himself plays organ, guitar and drums…  Magic Of Love is again dramatic, with strings and soaring lead guitar accompanying what I think is his best-ever vocal performance, and which he says came from “a special place” in his heart. “Please save us from this madness,” he pleads, in lyrics that are essentially optimistic, despite telling of hardship.” – John Masouri for Echoes Magazine
