Debut Single From The Grandson of The Tuff Gong

“Music is freedom for me,” says Skip. “I want people to just feel the music and let it be anything they want to make of it.” As the grand-nephew of Marcia Griffiths, the grandson of Bob and Rita Marley, and the son of Cedella Marley of Melody Makers fame, it’s safe to say he comes a strong musical background. Skip wrote and arranged “Cry to Me,” his debut single on Tuff Gong International, which is not to be confused with his grandfather Gong’s tune from the Rastaman Vibration album. The new song was co-produced with Paul Fakhourie, who’s worked with the likes of Lauryn Hill, Stephen Marley, Damian Marley and Nas. Born in Kingston and raised in Miami, Skip’s music is not limited by genre. He describes this song as “a message for this girl I know, well really a message for everybody who seems to focus on their insecurities… I’m just saying it’s cool to be who you are. Don’t let society deceive you and make you believe you’re not enough.” With penetrating, thoughtful lyrics and haunting melodies, this is one tune you don’t want to skip. Audio After The Jump…
