Next generation Marley family member and musician, Skip Marley has been included in the GAP clothing company’s new online social media promotion campaign promoting their ‘1969 DENIM’ clothing line with people that “live the spirit” of those known for the style they wear. “The Gap asked me what makes me feel most alive,” Skip explains about the video ad while shooting in the sunshine of California. “Music Is Life” cited the young artist and that his grandfather Bob Marley and his uncles have preferred to be outfitted in denim spanning the generations. Skip has had a impressive start to 2016 with stellar performances in Jamaica at the One Love Fest and Marley71Celebration, the GAP’s 1969 Denim campaign and now he is prepping to shoot a video for his updated version of his grandfather’s classic “Three Little Birds” used in Sandals’ “No Worry” global ad campaign.
Skip Marley-Minto was exposed to the power of music from birth. The Kingston-born, Miami-raised singer/songwriter is both the grand-nephew of Marcia Griffiths and grandson of reggae icons Bob and Rita Marley. In addition to that, his mother Cedella Marley is one fourth of the GRAMMY award-winning group, Ziggy Marley & the Melody Makers.
