Al Anderson & Junior Marvin, worldwide celebrated musicians, who toured and recorded with Marley until his passing have for the past two years been touring internationally and consistently with their band T.O.W spreading their message of “One Love” in an explosive mix of roots, rock and reggae.

In ’74 when Bob Marley went solo, on the brink of international stardom, he surprised the music community by choosing as his lead guitarist the soft spoken, American Al Anderson. It was Anderson’s stunning lead work on such classics as ‘No Woman, No Cry’, ‘Dem Belly Full’ and ‘Curfew’ (Three O’ Clock Road Block) that first alerted rock fans to Wailers’ music. Over a billion dollars worth of Marley’s music featuring Al Anderson’s evocative guitar work has been sold worldwide. Al has also played with the legendary Peter Tosh, James Brown, Stevie Wonder, The Rolling Stones, Steel Pulse, Aswad, Inner Circle, Traffic and Ben Harper.

Junior Marvin joined Marley as singer/guitarist during the sessions for Exodus and Kaya albums, shortly before the band’s legendary appearance at London’s Rainbow Theatre in ’77. Junior has also to his credit worked with Ike & Tina Turner, Steve Windwood, Linda Lewis, T.Bone Walker, Billy Preston, Chris Wood in both the US and UK.

Al Anderson’s main ambition is to promote T.O.W’s new album ‘Miracle’. In addition to live performances the band will be playing original songs from the CD and classics of the past from Legend.

‘Miracle’ is a collective album reminiscent to the electric days of the original three, Peter, Bob and Bunnys’ class of music. It was always the standard of the three of them, how they sang of reality that captured my attention. To forever keep their memories of my time I spent with them is to keep the realities in the music we perform now. ‘Miracle’ is all live recording, no drum machines, tracks done in real time so getting the original sound from the beginning to this very day, very much keeping the spirit of the music original and alive. When we got together in 1974 at the National Arena in Jamaica it made an impact on my life musically to date and being part of those three original Wailers left me the standard of their musical genius.

T.O.W is not just centered around Al and Junior they are joined on stage with band members in the form of esteemed and super talented musicians Desi Hyson (Vocals/Keyboards), Steve Samuels (Bass Guitar), Paapa Nyarkoh (Drums) and Marty Batista (Keyboards and Organ). This reformed configuration breathes new life into each and every live show. T.O.W carries forward the true spirit and realities of the original music and message of “One Love”.
