Stephen Marley came to Seattle Sunday June 19th at the Showbox Downtown near the Pike Place Market during his Revelation, Pt. 1: The Root of Life – Stephen Marley tour. Stephen was joined by guest Sragga Benz for a 3 hour plus performance that included hits from Mind Control, Revelation, Pt. 1: The Root of Life, and Stephen’s father, the legendary Reggae master from Jamaica, Bob Marley. Its cool to see one of the Marley brothers anytime you can because they give off an aura of good vibes and you can feel somewhat closer to Bob Marley when you hear one of his classics recited by his son. Stephen Marley is joined by Ky-Mani Marley and Damian “Jr. Gong” Marley as the singing sons Bob produced through his numerous relations with many women. When its a guy like Bob, it was best to spread his seed as much as possible. We benefit from the many members of the extended Marley family by getting a chance to continue the love and progression brought on by the love for reggae music. All in all in would rate a Stephen Marley concert two thumbs up for great crowd interaction, passionate music, and great drum playing. It amazed me that there was no opener, just hours of Stephen pumping us up with his hits. A highlight was seeing what seemed to be Stephen’s young son out dancing for a few songs, and the two female backup singers, who really get the crowd going.

MIC T – MIC T is from Kingsgate, Washington which is located on the eastside of Seattle. His interest in music artistically began when he started writing lyrics at the age sixteen and it intensified when he started producing beats at age twenty one. A continual learning process throughout those years MIC T aggressively pursued knowledge on beat making and learning song structure. After free styling and spitting written verses to his homies MIC T was ready to become more serious as far as making music. A chance encounter with old friend turned artist named Filthy McNast turned into him being brought to Undercaste Studios. It would be beneficial as he would be introduced to engineer Randy Ross and he would find a new home to record his music. MIC T’s has strong lyrical ability with a lot of originality to the hip hop game.
