Brian Marley and the Big Drum


I was born in 1979 in Jinja town (hospital) in Eastern Uganda. Both of my parents are now deceased. My primary years were spent in both Jinja and Kampala in Schools like Wanyange Primary School and Kiswa Primary School respectively.
I joined 'O' level in Jinja Secondary School and Lakeside College in Jinja. 'A' levels saw me completing in Uphill College.

I started singing when I was in primary four but it wasn't real until I reached senior three that I started serious vocal practice.
I have composed many songs since 1997 and so far I have formed a group called The Big Drum, in full Bryan Marley and the Big Drum. The members of the group are Lady Christine, Abraham, Kenny and I Bryan. We sing both gospel and secular songs.

Currently I stay in Bugolobi and I also run a barber shop in Leon Barber Services at Bugolobi New market.

My best male artists are Born Jamericans, Baba Maal, the late Bob Marley, Apache Indian and Buju Banton while the female artists are Patra, the late Black Box, Whitney Houston and Aaliyah.

Brian Marley and The Big Drum are working on a new album.
