The Willits News 08/08-
"Probably the biggest surprise showing at this year's Reggae Rising was Julian Marley. Living in the shadows of brothers Ziggy, Damian and Stephen for years, he has been relatively unnoticed by many reggae fans. His simple and subtle showmanship, accompanied by a reggae sound that has been untouched for decades, made a strong impression on the unfamiliar listener. Featuring local talent "Blue" Luke Andrews on guitar, the band recalled a time when much of the genre had strong blues and jazz influences. The band moved from legendary Bob Marley tracks to original material with Luke's jaw-dropping guitar solos reminiscent of Slash and Hendrix to experimental sounds unlike anything I have heard from a reggae band, all of it while maintaining a confident and cohesive sound. Julian Marley and The Uprising Band will surely be welcomed back to Reggae Rising soon." (Logan Clark)
Nov. 12 2009- Eureka Times-Standard
-If you listen to the guitar riff on "A Little Too Late," a track on Julian Marley's new album,
you're essentially hearing the audition that catapulted Luke Andrews from hanging out in Laytonville, CA to touring with reggae's first family.
The story of Andrews' improbable journey -- which made a stop in Eureka last week -- began when he was about 15 years old and met a man on the streets of Laytonville who used to know Bob Marley. Andrews and the man, Desmond Smith, made fast friends, passing hours in Andrews' room, putting together dub beats and reggae tunes, with Smith handling the vocals and Andrews playing all the instruments. Andrews said that, over the ensuing years, Smith would repeatedly tell him that he had played some of the songs for Bob Marley's children, and that they were interested in working with him. Andrews wasn't so sure. "He'd tell me every time, 'Yeah, they love the tapes and I'm going to hook you up with them,'" Andrews recalled.
Some 15 years after their first meeting -- after Andrews had put together a solo album in Los Angeles, the blues-inspired "Blue Luke Andrews & Friends ," and spent stints living in Ireland and Hawaii -- Andrews was back in Laytonville in 2006 when he ran into Smith again, who told him the Marleys were ready to give him a shot. "I was like, 'whatever,' it had been 15 years of that," Andrews said, adding that he got quite a surprise a couple of days later. "One day Julian just called my house, and left a message with my step mom." The message was that he was going to fly Andrews out to the Marleys' studio in Miami to see if his bluesy sound would fit with that of Julian's in-progress album, "Awake." "They were working on a track and said, 'You have any ideas?'" Andrews said, adding that he quickly said yes, and was sent into the recording booth. "I just closed my eyes and went in and did it in one take. When I opened my eyes, they all had their thumbs up. The guitar you hear on ("A Little Too Late") was my audition."
Julian and brother Stephen Marley obviously liked what they heard, as they hired Andrews to play guitar and do some production work on the rest of the album, and later to go on tour with Julian Marley and the Uprising. While it appears an odd fit on the surface, a kid from Laytonville touring the world with reggae's most recognizable names, it all makes sense in the context of history. When Bob Marley and the Wailers looked to expand its sound to reach audiences outside of Jamaica with its third international release, "Natty Dread," the group hired American guitarist Al Anderson to bring a rock and blues edge to the guitar riffs that would accent the Wailers' pulsing reggae rhythms. They later brought in guitarist Junior Marvin, who was born in Jamaica but largely crafted his sound playing with rock bands in Europe.
And, as much as Andrews loves reggae, blues and rock were his foundation. While Andrews said he loved spending his younger years in Laytonville, he said he grew a bit stir crazy as he got older. "Once I got into junior high, I started to get over it, kind of," Andrews said. "But, I found music. Then, I just wanted to stay home and play guitar, and I kind of did after seventh grade." Andrews said he was home-schooled after junior high and had a teacher willing to craft his entire curriculum around music. "If I had a gig or a show, the art lesson would be making a poster, and math would be dividing up the band cash," Andrews said. "I'd write reports on old blues guys and Jimi Hendrix and stuff like that. It really ended up good."
After finishing school, Andrews bounced around a bit before landing at the Berklee College of Music in Boston in 2002. After graduating, he found the Marleys. Soon, the kid from the 1,300-population town of Laytonville was on-stage in Cyprus, Greece, at Medfest, for his first show with Julian, playing in front of more than 20,000 fans. He's since been to Africa, to Beijing for the Olympics (Julian wanted to be there to support Jamaican sprinter Usain Bolt), to Jamaica and all over the country. Then, last weekend, Julian's tour brought Andrews to Eureka for a homecoming of sorts.
"It's one of those weird things in life that just works out for you," Andrews said. "I never expected to be playing for them. I was always obsessed with Bob and that kind of stuff. I think it's just a matter of whatever you put your mind to, you can do. ... I'd just sit in my bedroom and make reggae tracks for years, until Julian Marley called my house one day." While not touring with the Marleys, Andrews said he teaches guitar lessons in Laytonville and works with local artists.

Julian Marley unites Barrymore crowd with hypnotic show

Any feel-good call for unity, as Julian Marley made at his delirious reggae show Sunday night at the Barrymore Theatre, doesn't mean much until it gets challenged.
And lo, early in the show, the challenge appeared next to me out of nowhere like a curl of smoke: a young guy in cargo pants dancing in the aisle like a tweaked-out orangutan in slow motion. So vigorous was his noodling, it slopped his beer on my foot.
Oh, brother. Here we go. After a slurred apology, he made his best offer.
"Want to drink my beer so I don't spill it on you?" "No."
More sloshy orangutan moves. "Do you have a pipe?" "No."
Pause. "Do any of your friends have a pipe?"
And so it continued. Not exactly a "one love" situation. But where it might have grated on me another time, it was easy to let it go in the presence of the hypnotic music and jubilant spirit of Julian Marley, who played a 90-plus minute show of originals, a few duos with his brother Stephen and a couple of tributes to their father Bob.
In general, the sons played their father's songs faster. Julian turned the molasses tempo and heavy-lidded plea of "Stir It Up" into a peppy call to action pierced with Luke Andrews' wailing guitar solos. Julian's take sounded fresh and not derivative. As he often did throughout the show, he flung his arms around and kicked up his knees loosely. The resemblance to his father is uncanny, unlike the beefier Stephen.
Together the brothers hit the zenith of the night when they traded verses on a speedy "Could You Be Loved?" and set the crowd in a feverish dance.
But the performance in general didn't feel like a throwback to Jamaica of the 1970s. The lyrics of Julian's song "Violence in the Streets," a single off his recently released album "Awake," address the current economic problems of Jamaica. His backing band, The Uprising, played with rock and hip-hop while still keeping pretty faithful to traditional reggae.
A couple of songs, like the title track off "Awake," sounded too heavy-handed and slowed down the pacing but in general Julian's originals flowed well and held their own in a live setting for a smooth show.
The tight backing band aced it. The sharp, bouncing chords of the keyboard on the upbeat held down an overall rhythm that hit the downbeat a split second late and gave the music a languid, ever-expanding feel like rings radiating from a drop of water.
It was hard to unscramble Julian's between-song talk through his heavy Jamaican accent and reverb-heavy mic, but the words that came through clearest were a simple message of peace and unity. The audience picked up on it quickly, and it followed them out the door into the mild October night. A group of friends walking down Atwood Avenue post-show stopped in the middle of some drunken bickering when one shouted out, "Shuddup! We gotta be united!"

With its wistful chorus, the title track to Julian Marley's Awake invents a new sort of reggae-emo sound. Influenced by the passing of his grandmother, Cedella Marley Booker, the song is a beautiful plea for the youth to open their eyes and let peace, love, and harmony into their heart, but this melodic mix of emo-pop and island music is an anomaly, opening up an otherwise unsurprising Julian Marley album. Less adventurous and more traditional than his stepbrothers Damien and Stephen, Julian is the sibling to satisfy the more roots-oriented fan, although he does carry a healthy R&B influence like so many other contemporary reggae artists. The silky "Oh Girl" would sound just right on any urban radio "pillow talk" program, while the spiritual highlight "Just in Time" falls somewhere between Barrington Levy and Wyclef. The remaining big numbers are straight-up Jamaican with "Violence in the Streets" sounding like a worthy follow-up to brother/guest star Damien's "Welcome to Jamrock," while the smoker's song, "Boom Draw," offers "A little bit of draw was on Solomon's throne" as the already deep drum and bass get soaked in reverb. Well-rounded and yet firmly in the genre of reggae, Awake is a comfortable, familiar success with Julian anchoring the Marley Family legacy once again.
