Ziggy Marley was born October 17, 1968 in Trenchtown, Jamaica. The eldest son of Bob and Rita Marley, Ziggy began his musical career playing with his father and his siblings Sharon, Cedella and Stephen on "Children Playing in the Streets" in 1979.

The siblings became known as Ziggy Marley and the Melody Makers, and released their debut album, "Play the Game Right" on EMI Records in 1985. While with EMI, the Melody Makers released "Hey World" in 1986, and then "The Time Has Come: The Best of Ziggy Marley and the Melody Makers" in 1988.

In 1988, the band moved to Virgin Records and recorded "Conscious Party" which won them their first Grammy. "Conscious Party" was produced by Chris Frantz and Tina Weymouth, and included the hit songs "Tomorrow People" and "Tumblin' Down."
