Naomi Cowan is an emerging talent in reggae music. A gifted singer and songwriter, she is the daughter of Tommy Cowan, a renowned music producer who was also Bob Marley’s former road manager. Now, things have come full circle as Cowan plays one of the I-Threes (the legendary Marcia Griffiths) in the new biopic, “Bob Marley: One Love.”
Cowan profoundly understands the remarkable impact of Marley's life and career. She grew up hearing stories of his exceptional work ethic and unwavering belief that his journey transcended mere fame.
"He really dedicated himself to what he was doing. It wasn't a superstar thing for him,” said Cowan during an interview with BET during the 2023 Welcome to Jam Rock Reggae Cruise. “He knew he had a deeper purpose and was in a position to carry it out."
Cowan recalls the stories her father would tell about Marley’s selflessness and work ethic—lessons that have since inspired her own music.
"You can feel it in the music if you close your eyes and listen. I think that is why Bob Marley's music lasted so long. It inspires me to think in the same vein for my music."
