Talented reggae act and grandson of the legendary Bob Marley, Joseph “Jo Mersa” Marley, has released a new “Eternal” Visual mixtape as a follow up to his 2021 EP.
“Jo Mersa Marley is gradually making a mark in the reggae music industry, with his signature style standing out from contemporaries,” Brooklyn-based Jamaican publicist Ronnie Tomlinson told Caribbean Life.
“The eldest son of Stephen Marley and grandson of Bob Marley is again looking to bless the ears of millions of music lovers as he releases a new visual mixtape titled ‘Eternal,’” added Tomlinson, chief executive officer of Destine Media.
She said Jo Mersa’s latest project is a follow-up to his EP, with the same title, released in May, “amidst rave reviews from listeners.”
“The music world continues to evolve as more names emerge across different genres to meet the listening demands of people across the globe,” Tomlinson said. “Reggae ranks as one of the oldest music genres, standing the test time of time amidst a series of evolution. Jo Mersa Marley is, however, looking to take the listening experience a notch higher, as he drops his visual mixtape.”
Tomlinson said the mixtape, done in collaboration with “Bashment,” Disco Neil and Silent Addy, features unreleased content, freestyles and dubplates that have never been heard before, including singles like “Nicki” and “Supermarket.”
“Eternal Mixtape also has some big names on the project with appearances by Damian Jr. ‘Gong’ Marley, Kabaka Pyramid and Black Am I,” said Tomlinson, adding that the project is “particularly unique as the mixtape carries a visual tape component with a full-length video to accompany the audio release.
“Jo Mersa Marley is following the footsteps of his grandfather, using music as a tool to change the world, as he drops entertaining yet thought-provoking songs,” she continued. “The release of the much-anticipated Eternal EP substantiated this claim, with songs like ‘Made It’, ‘Yo Dawg’, ‘Dream,’ delivering content and experiences that listeners can relate with.”
The visual tape of “Eternal” is hosted on the Jo Mersa Marley YouTube channel, while the audio is available on Soundtrack and Audiomack.
