Ziggy Marley “Wild and Free” Tour
Set to Visit Cache Creek Casino Resort
Brooks, Calif. – Ziggy Marley has had a fruitful career. Multiple Grammy Award-winning
musician. Actor, artiste, activist and humanitarian. See Ziggy, in support of Wild and Free, in
Cache Creek Casino Resort’s Club 88 showroom on September 8.
Since early last year, Ziggy has been touring tirelessly around the world, including supporting
dates with Shakira on her Pop Festival tour in South America, and appearing at such festivals as
Lovebox and V Fest in the UK, Summer Sonic in Japan, and the Montreux Jazz Fest in
Wild and Free, Ziggy’s fourth solo album which he co-produced with Grammy-winning producer
Don Was (The Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan, Elton John, George Clinton), has received multiple
accolades since its early summer release. In a recent review, People Magazine said that Ziggy
“scores from start to finish on this excellent set,” while Billboard lauds the album’s “island rhythms
and melodies with pop sensibilities.” The album includes such unique pairings as the title track
featuring Woody Harrelson, “It” featuring the recently-departed Heavy D, and “Changes” which
was co-written by Linda Perry and features a guest rap by Ziggy’s son, Daniel Marley.
Ziggy’s early immersion in music came at age 10 when he sat in on recording sessions with his
father, Bob Marley. As front man to Ziggy Marley and The Melody Makers, the group released
eight best-selling albums that garnered three Grammys, with such chart-topping hits as "Look
Who’s Dancing", "Tomorrow People" and "Tumbling Down." Ziggy's first solo album Dragonfly
was released in 2003. His second solo release Love is My Religion won a Grammy in 2006 for
Best Reggae Album. His third solo album Family Time scored him a fifth Grammy award for Best
Children’s Album.
