Ziggy Marley
Ziggy Marley
Throughout the course of his three-decade career and 16 albums, Ziggy has built a music legacy worthy of his legendary family name. With eight GRAMMY® Awards and an EMMY® to his credit, the humanitarian, singer, songwriter, and producer continually progresses at every turn. Ziggy’s musical history dates back to ten-years-old when he would watch his father Bob Marley record in the studio. His eight-album catalog with the Melody Makers encompasses three GRAMMY® Awards, countless sold out shows, and anthems including “Look Who’s Dancing,” “Tomorrow People,” and “Conscious Party.” Since making his solo debut in 2003, he received the GRAMMY® Award for “Best Reggae Album” in 2006, 2012, and 2015 in addition to the Award for “Best Children’s Album” in 2011 recognizing his first children’s album Family Time. That same year, he released his graphic novel debut, MARIJUANAMAN. In 2012, he launched Ziggy Marley Organics, which quickly became a leader in GMO-free coconut oils and hemp seed snacks available in 1000 stores. 2013 saw him achieve a Daytime EMMY® Award for “I Love You Too” and release a children’s book of the same name.

As he embarks on a world tour in support of Ziggy Marley, he brings his message directly to the people.

“Everything happens when it’s meant to happen,” he leaves off. “That’s how my career has been since the beginning. Each project is inspired. There are metaphysical and universal things at work in all of our lives. It’s natural and organic. This album is another one of those moments. The message came to me. It’s here at the right time, and I’m ready to share it.”

Ben & Jerry’s “One Love Session II”

We’re excited to welcome Ziggy Marley to our home state, to continue the celebration of this fun and inspiring collaboration surrounding our newest partnership flavor, Bob Marley’s One Love.

The flavor partnership beneficiary, the One Love Youth Camp in Jamaica, focuses on using creativity and the arts to bring about social change for the youth of Jamaica –a direct extension of Bob Marley’s legacy. A portion of this show’s proceeds will be donated to the camp.

If you know Ben & Jerry’s, you know that we tend to express ourselves through ice cream. Our loves, our hopes, our dreams —they all come out in those sweet chunks and swirls. With the release of our newest flavor, One Love, we’re not just saying that we think banana ice cream, caramel and graham cracker swirls, and fudge peace signs are an amazing combination. We’re also showing our immense love and respect for iconic reggae legend Bob Marley.

We have long been inspired by Marley’s legendary life of music and activism. His philosophy of peace, love, and togetherness is just what our co-founders had in mind when they started this crazy ice cream company way back in 1978.

“Ben & Jerry’s has had a bunch of partnerships over the years but there has never been one like the one we have now, working with Ziggy and the Bob Marley Foundation and the Marley family. Because it’s about those values, that legacy of love and unity and social justice.” ~ Jerry Greenfield
