Win A Pair Of Tickets To Ziggy Marley’s Exclusive London Headline Show
On Saturday we ran Ziggy Marley’s top ten all time favourite albums to mark the imminent release of his new album, Fly Rasta, due out 14th April. He’s following up the release of that album with an exclusive London headline show live at Electric Brixton on 23rd April for which we have a pair of tickets to give away. Read on for details.
Support for the gig comes from the “highly regarded in her own right” artist Hollie Cook so it’s bound to be a great night! Hollie’s currently got a PledgeMusic campaign going to try to fund the release her brand new album. It’s not actually due out till May but pledgers will be able to get hold of a copy two weeks prior to the official release. Go here to pledge / pre-order.
Of Ziggy’s album we’re told:
‘Fly Rasta’ finds Ziggy exploring both traditional reggae and new musical territories, often merging the two. Keen to stretch himself beyond his usual frame-of-reference, ‘Fly Rasta’ incorporates elements of rock, funk, soul and pop over a broad range of lyrical content.
Marley approached the making of ‘Fly Rasta’ by pushing himself into new musical space and beyond the boundary of his immediate repertoire. In early 2013, Marley wrote a mission statement for ‘Fly Rasta’ on a scrap piece of paper at his home studio in Los Angeles, CA. The concept was simple: make a reggae record that was true to Marley, but as importantly, the sound should push outside the typical confines of what reggae music is known for. Marley began work in the spring of 2013 and enlisted producer Dave Cooley (J Dilla, Silversun Pickups, Madlib) to focus on song structure and audio profiles, with the pair working together to sculpt each track.
