World Music

In February 1977, Julian Junior Marvin was invited to join Bob Marley & The Wailers. The rest is history. The acclaimed Exodus LP became Julian Junior’s debut with Bob Marley & The Wailers. In 1999, Time Magazine declared Exodus Album of The Century, while “One Love” was named Song of the Millennium in 2000. Julian Junior Marvin was lead guitarist and musical contributor on all subsequent Bob Marley & the Wailers albums and toured worldwide with the Wailers until Bob’s passing in 1981.

Since then, Julian Junior has released four CDs with The Wailers Band: ID, Majestic Warriors, Jah Message and My Friends (Live), as well as numerous solo projects. In 2002, Julian Junior was included in Guitar World Magazine’s “Top 100 Guitarists of All Time” for his guitar solo on “Africa Unite” from the Bob Marley & the Wailers Survival album. After touring with many incarnations of The Wailers since Bob Marley’s passing, Julian Junior has stepped out to front his own unique version of The Wailers, playing and singing Bob Marley & the Wailers hit songs the way Bob intended them to be heard... The Legendary Wailers.
