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. Those strong musical roots gave him the fertile ground to develop his natural gift for creating and performing. The result is “Cry to Me”, Skip’s debut single on Tuff Gong International.

Written and arranged by Skip himself, and co-produced by Skip with Paul Fakhourie (Lauryn Hill, Stephen Marley, Damian Marley, Nas), “Cry To Me” is a pop-reggae track with an important message for young people about overcoming insecurities. Despite the song’s mature theme, Skip is still a kid, and the video, shot in Miami, finds him in a typical teenager’s bedroom, sporting an Oculus Rift headset and toying around on drums and guitar, while comforting his female object of his attention.
