Stephen Marley has announced a number of additional dates on his “Old Soul Unplugged” Tour, with pre-sale tickets available now. General on-sale is set for Friday, March 22.

The show features Marley offering up a special acoustic performance accompanied by guitars, flute, and percussion. The singer will be featuring songs off his new album Old Soul, plus selections from his entire catalog and Bob Marley classics.

Last year, the Grammy-winning singer-songwriter broke down his collaborative single from Old Soul entitled “Winding Roads,” which features The Grateful Dead’s Bob Weir and Jack Johnson.

Regarding its origins, Marley explains, “Jack Johnson and Bob Weir both heard the song from my manager. Both wanted to be involved.” They were attracted to the song, according to Marley, because of its simplicity and organic inspiration.

“My creative process is to absorb whatever the universe sends. I’m inspired by many, many things. It comes out in the music that I make. The inspiration for the initial song was me and my guitar. I’m speaking about not taking the fast route in life…I’d rather take that narrow, winding road that will lead me there safe, sound, and collected.”

Marley also touched on how the Grateful Dead legend reminds him of his father. “I went to meet Bob Weir at the studio and we jammed quite a few songs. He is a lover of music. ‘Winding Roads’ was the one that he was keen on. We had a good time. Bob is such a great musician and has been in music for so many years,” he says.

“Some of it reminds me of my father. It was good to see how simple it was to make music. It was not complicated. They were great musicians, but there was a simplicity to it. It was a great thing to be a part of. I was there when Bob was writing his verse and it was so easy.”

The songwriter also reflected on what he hopes listeners take away from the song. He says, “I wish others could see this lesson: How simple it should be to get together and create.”
