Damian Marley also known around the world as “Junior Gong” and more recently as “Gongzilla”, was born on July 21, 1978, in Kingston, Jamaica to reggae legend Bob Marley and 1976 Miss World, Cindy Breakspeare.

As a teenager, at the age of 13, Damian began performing with the Shepherds, and then began touring with his older brothers Stephen, Ky-mani, Julian and Ziggy. He worked with Stephen on his first heavily dancehall-influenced album, “Mr. Marley.”.

His second album “Halfway Tree” was released in 2001 by a major record label. Damian has ever since been showing a unique gift for blending dancehall, reggae and hip-hop styles. This album won Damian much recognition and remained on the Billboard Top Reggae Album Charts for 158 weeks and earned him his first Grammy for Best Reggae Album in 2002.

Damian continued to work in the studio, laying the groundwork for the tracks that would become his highly anticipated album, “Welcome To Jamrock”. The lyrics in this album presented Marley as a true spiritual revolutionary, as he used his talent to evoke a spiritual change while trying to enforce a better way of thinking.  He is described as “rhyming with the conviction of a street preacher with the intellect of a university economist”.

Damian’s hit single “Welcome to Jamrock” was listed as one of the Top 100 Songs of the Decade by Rolling Stone, and at the 2006 Grammy Awards, he won Best Reggae Album and Best Urban/Alternative Performance.

Damian is the only Jamaican reggae artist in history to win two Grammy Awards on the same night. He is also the only reggae artist to win in the Best Urban/Alternative Performance category at the Grammy Awards
