Reggae singer Ziggy Marley deems his solo album and tour a great learning experience - because it's the first time he'll be without his sisters.

The son of reggae legend Bob Marley made his name with his siblings in the MELODY MAKERS, but he has now released his first solo album DRAGONFLY and is set to tour without his family.

But he refuses to see it as a daunting experience.

He says, "I think it will be better for everyone in the end - my going on tour by myself. It helps me to grow as a person and musician. It helps me to learn more things and bring more back to the group when we do go back to the studio."
