Happy Birthday Bob Marley!

On February 6, 1945, Jamaican reggae singer-songwriter, musician, and guitarist was born. Starting out in 1963 with the group the Wailers, he forged a distinctive songwriting and vocal style that would later resonate with audiences worldwide. The Wailers would go on to release some of the earliest reggae records with producer Lee Scratch Perry. After the Wailers disbanded in 1974, he pursued a solo career which culminated in the release of the album Exodus in 1977 which established his worldwide reputation and produced his status as one of the world’s best-selling artists of all time. He was a committed Rastafari who infused his music with a sense of spirituality. In his honor, we present the Bob Marley emoji to share with others. Happy birthday Bob!
