Marley began his professional musical career in 1963, after forming the Teenagers with Peter Tosh and Bunny Wailer, which later became the Wailers following multiple name changes. The Wailing Wailers’ debut studio album, The Wailing Wailers; released in 1965 and featured the track “One Love,” a rearrangement of “People Get Ready;” which became a worldwide hit and established the group as a rising reggae star.
The Wailers released a further eleven studio albums, and after signing to Island Records the band’s name became Bob Marley and the Wailers. While initially employing louder instrumentation and singing, the group began engaging in rhythmic-based song construction in the late 1960s and early 1970s, which coincided with Marley’s conversion to Rastafari. Around this time, Marley relocated to London, and the group embodied their musical shift with the release of the album The Best of The Wailers (1971).

After signing with Island and touring in support of the albums Catch a Fire and Burnin’, the band began to acquire international prominence (both 1973). Marley continued to perform under the Wailers’ name until the band disbanded a year later. The album Natty Dread (1974) garnered a favourable response. Following the global success of Eric Clapton’s cover of Marley’s “I Shot the Sheriff,” Marley achieved his international breakthrough in 1975 with a live rendition of “No Woman, No Cry” from the Live! album, which was his first hit outside Jamaica.
This was followed by his breakthrough album in the United States; Rastaman Vibration (1976), which reached the Top 50 of the Billboard Soul Charts. Besides, a few months after the album’s release Marley survived an assassination attempt at his home in Jamaica; which prompted him to permanently relocate to London.
During his time in London he recorded the album Exodus (1977); it incorporated elements of blues, soul, and British rock and enjoyed widespread commercial and critical success. In 1977, Marley diagnosed with acral lentiginous melanoma; he died as a result of the illness in 1981. His fans around the world expressed their grief, and he received a state funeral in Jamaica.
