Julian Marley’s fame has risen to new heights with the success of his Grammy Award Nominated album entitled, Awake.

Julian Marley notes, “Being on tour is truly the fruits of our labour, and I give thanks to all the fans who continue to help us breathe new life into each and every live show.”
Co-produced with his brothers Stephen Marley and Damian "Jr. Gong" Marley, Julian Marley’s third studio album , Awake was released on April 28, 2009 on Ghetto Youths / Universal Records, and took home the award for ‘Best Album of the Year’ at the International Reggae and World Music Awards (IRAWMA) in New York City on May 2nd, 2010.
