Julian Junior Marvin was invited to join both Stevie Wonder’s band and Bob Marley & The Wailers. His parents and musician friends helped him to take Bob Marley’s invitation because of the fact that they were both Jamaicans… and the rest is history. “Exodus” was Junior’s first album with Bob Marley & The Wailers and it was later voted Best Album Of The 20th Century by Time Magazine. He was featured on all of the subsequent Bob Marley and The Wailers albums, touring the world with them until Bob’s passing in 1981.
Since then, Junior has put out four CDs with The Wailers: “ID,” “Majestic Warriors,”“Jah Message” and “My Friends” (Live) as well as numerous solo projects, including “Wailin’ For Love”,“Smokin’ To The Big M Music” and “Lion To Zion Dub Wise”.Junior can also be found on albums by Burning Spear, The Meditations, Joe Yamanaka, Joe Higgs, Alpha Blondy, Bunny Wailer, Israel Vibration, Culture, Beres Hammond, The Congos, SOJA, O.A.R. and Alborosie, amongst others.
After touring with many of the incarnations of The Wailers since Bob Marley’s passing, Junior has now stepped out to front his own version of The Wailers, playing and singing all of the Bob Marley & The Wailers hits the way Bob intended them to be heard. In addition, Junior has a new album dropping worldwide in 2019 entitled “The Message Of Love”, the title track of which will also be released as a single.
