A Commentary by Mitch Santell on Family and Legacy
This past week in the life of Julian Marley has been an amazing one in Los Angeles as his Father would have been 75 years of age this year.

The journey of Julian Marley has a more in-depth and profound meaning to his life because, in my view, he is the culmination of the experiences that his Father went through. At 44, it shines through Julian's face.
Julian Marley makes an immediate impression on you. First, not only can this guy sing, he makes you feel when you hear his songs that he is singing them just for you.
Second, he goes on stage with his tall, slender frame, dominates the scene with his creative presence, and is in great physical shape. He moves at a non-stop pace, and before you know it, you are standing in the aisles dancing with him.
The passion that Julian Marley has for his music is undeniable. His lyrics and musical style are infectious. When you step away from something, (in Julian's case, it was ten years) you come back stronger and more focused than ever. The video above shows Julian's passion for Reggae and his commitment to the Rastafarian movement.
