My name is Francis Jocky, some of you may have known my work with the legendary Jon Anderson from the band “Yes” or with the Japanese super star singer Misia or with my solo album like “Mr Pain” and “Sanctified” or “African Tale”, or for my live apparitions with such legend as Stevie Wonder and Bono.
But today I would like to pay tribute to one of the greatest Mr Bob Marley with my new project called Bob Marley and Me, a record with 21 of his songs from the most popular to the unreleased ones that Mr Marley was keeping as a demo.
As millions of people, probably billions, I’m a huge fan of Mr Marley. I felt in love with his music since my very young age in Douala Cameroon in Africa. At that time we were listening many reggae vibes artists like Jimmy Cliff, Peter Tosh, Lucky Dube, Lee Scratch Perry, UB40, Gregory Isaac, Alpha Blondy, etc…
But it was only when I moved to Paris France, when I started to understand the meaning of his songs, that the connexion happens. And since that moment, Mr Marley spirit never left me, it even growing today in NYC.
That’s why I would like to pay tribute to this great artist and authentic man whom the message has never been as relevant as today.
The aim of this project is to offer another version of his songs with nowadays vibes, to connect the new generation and to share 8 demo songs with lifetime fans.
After couple of years of searching, recording, mixing, producing, I’m really excited today to share my work with you.
