Skip Marley has signed to Blue Mountain Music, the music publishing outfit created by Island Records founder Chris Blackwell, famous of course for signing Skip’s grandfather, the late great Bob Marley, and bringing him to worldwide attention back in the day.

The worldwide deal will cover publishing rights in all of Skip Marley’s upcoming releases for Tuff Gong International, including debut single ‘Cry To Me’. A second single is also planned for later this summer before Skip joins his uncles Stephen and Damian Marley on a US tour.

Confirming the deal, Blackwell said: “I am really excited to be working with Bob’s grandson, Skip. He has so much to offer”.
