Video: Marley (Trailer)

Bob Marley's universal appeal, impact on music history and role as a social and political prophet is both unique and unparalleled. Marley is the definitive life story of the musician, revolutionary, and legend, from his early days to his rise to international superstardom. Made with the support of the Marley family, the film features rare footage, incredible performances and revelatory interviews with the people that knew him best. From Academy Award-winning director Kevin Macdonald comes the story of a towering figure of musical history, whose music and message has transcended different cultures, languages and creeds to resonate around the world today as powerfully as when he was alive.

Music Seen! Eric Roberson - "Mister Nice Guy"

Every time I feel I’m about to lose hope in the R&B/soul genre there appears an artist that helps restore my faith and keeps me wanting to return to a music genre that was once so great. An artist who has paid his dues from the church to the stage, Eric Roberson has definitely put in work; the results are evidence of this. I had never heard of Eric Roberson until I saw his name pop up here and there late last year on music blogs. He released his album “Mister.Nice Guy” in late 2011 to a lot of acclaim and I decided to check him out. I was impressed by what I heard and so decided to review his albums just to put you folks out there on this cat. So, enough talk lets delve into the album.

Eric Roberson’s album opens up with the title song “Mr.Nice Guy,” a lovely and honest song about how hard it is to be a gentleman in this day and age. With media and entertainment giving young men the impression that being a player, womanizer and overall bad boy is the way to get the beautiful lad…
