Grammy winner Stephen “Ragga” Marley most recently released One Take: Acoustic Jams, a five-track EP, last year via Ghetto Youths International, the Marley family label. He dropped by The Fillmore Silver Spring recently on an extended acoustic tour, and Chris Castillo got some pix!

Stephen beautifully deconstructs both his father Bob Marley’s songs (“Small Axe,” “All Day” and “Easy Skanking”) and his own (“Mind Control” and “Revelation Party”) in raw and uninhibited fashion on One Take: Acoustic Jams, his latest EP. This jam session recorded in Stephen’s living room, will come to life on the road, giving fans the rare opportunity to digest these melodic hits in an authentic, stripped-down form. In addition to vocals, Stephen plays guitar and percussion.

“When you share songs in their natural form, you hear them differently, so I just followed my spirit in making the choices of what songs fit this acoustic vibe,” Stephen told Billboard.
