David Nesta "Ziggy" Marley (born 17 October 1968) is a Jamaican musician and leader of the band Ziggy Marley and the Melody Makers, and the son of reggae icon Bob Marley and Rita Marley. In the earliest known record of his musical career, David Marley performed as part of a singing group called The Seven Do Bees, made up of him and his classmates, and wherein he was given the stage name "Freddie Dic".

It's an interesting irony that as Ziggy Marley's singing voice ages and becomes more and more similar to that of his late father, the music he makes gets more and more distant from the reggae mainstream. And on his first album without the Melody Makers, his explorations go even further afield, leading him to spend far more time with hip-hop beats and spare rock & roll than one-drop reggae grooves. This is all to the good, or would be, if Marley showed that he can craft melodies and lyrics as well on his own as he did with his band.

Dragonfly, Ziggy Marleys first solo effort, continues this trajectory. Featuring producers Ross Hogarth (Metallica, Jewel) and Scott Litt (. as well as special guests Flea, John Frusciante, David Lindley, and Incubuss Chris Kilmore, Dragonfly sounds closer to the adult contemporary music of recent Sting or . than the reggae of his father . I listened to it over and over and over. It is soothing, sensual, heartwarming, and a little bit of a hip swaying feel good mix of Reggae.
