Fun fact: The JuJu Royal Brand is named after Julian Marley’s childhood nickname JuJu and a gesture toward his childhood upbringing in England (Royal).
JuJu Royal is co-created and endorsed by Julian Marley who is the son of the emblematic reggae legend Bob Marley and Lucy Pounder. Julian Marley was born in London, England and grew up in a music friendly atmosphere. He is a roots-reggae musician, singer-songwriter, producer, and humanitarian. He is a self-taught musician and knows how to play the bass, drums, guitar, and keyboard.
Julian released his debut Lion in the Morning in 1996, which allowed him public acknowledgement and appreciation. This album encompasses his roots and heritage, which are both key elements that influence the JuJu Royal Brand. He collaborated with his brother, Stephen Marley, on A Time and Place, which solidified the next milestone on his musical journey.
Julian co-produced Awake, a captivating album, with his brothers Stephen Marley and Damian “Jr. Gong” Marley. Awake is a Grammy Award Nominated title and was released on Ghetto Youths/ Universal Music Groups. Ghetto Youths Crew is a record label that the Marley brothers fund. It’s designed with the heart and intention of helping and supporting the fundamental needs of the underprivileged. This is a continuation of the work that Bob Marley began and is an honor to Bob Marley’s legacy.
Julian’s most recent album, As I Am, was released in 2019 and brought him his second Grammy Nomination. His music reflects his intentions as a devout Rastafarian who is led and inspired by life and spirituality. The same love and intention that is placed into Julian Marley’s music and life also exists through the JuJu Royal Brand.
