About Jo Mersa
Joseph “Jo Mersa” Marley is the son of Stephen Marley and grandson of Bob Marley. Growing up surrounded by music, Jo Mersa started appearing on stage with his father at the age of four. He also shared the stage with his uncle Ziggy and aunts Cedella and Sharon (a.k.a. Ziggy Marley and The Melody Makers) and their children as part of the group’s rousing concert finales with Jo often taking the mic and chanting the lyrics to the Melody Makers’ biggest songs, much to the delight of their audiences.
Born in Kingston, Jamaica on March 12, 1991, Jo moved to Miami at age 11 where he keenly observed his father and his uncle, Damian, creating music in Stephen’s Lion’s Den studio. While Jo made school his priority, he pursued his passion for music on the sides, traveling with Ziggy and the Melody Makers while on school breaks and summer vacations. The experiences provided first-hand opportunities for Jo to expand his musical aspirations beyond the performance stage.
