Skip Marley, the grandson of reggae legend Bob Marley, has signed a publishing deal with Blue Mountain Music. Chris Blackwell of Blue Mountain signed Bob Marley to Island Records in the 1970s and says he is looking forward to working with Skip Marley who “has so much to offer.” The deal will cover all of the works on Skip Marley’s release for Tuff Gong International. Skip Marley, 19, says he wants to “spread positivity through music.” He will join with his uncles Stephen and Damian Marley at the end of August 2015 as they travel across the United States on their month-long Catch Fire tour.
