Celebs Show “One Love” to House of Marley Headphones

Since The House of Marley first began making eco-friendly headphones and audio systems a few years ago, we’ve been fortunate enough to make friends all around the world. From the average music enthusiast who listens on his phone and isn’t worried about decibel levels, to world class DJs who seek out a certain level of isolation, fans of House of Marley headphones span a wide spectrum of music lovers.

Lately, we have been meeting a lot of celebrities who are really into House of Marley headphones, so we decided to share some of the photos here. These are cool and all, but we know more than just actors, musicians, and athletes rock our gear. That’s why we want all of you to post pictures of yourselves wearing House of Marley headphones to our Facebook wall. We want to show off every House of Marley lover. In the mean time, check out some of our new celebrity friends.

Demi Lovato

Demi Lovato, star of Sonny With a Chance and singing wunderkind, recently checked out House of Marley products and was all about the Positive Vibration on-ear headphones. From the vibrant spiral cord that nearly matches Lovato’s hair, to the use of eco-friendly materials, we wowed the newly crowned X-Factor judge with our headphone stuff.

Dwight Howard

Stylin’ and profilin’ with a House of Marley team member, six-time NBA All-Star and Orlando Magic center, Dwight Howard offered his peace sign of approval at a recent store appearance. Repping a pair of Exodus on-ear headphones, Dwight was all about the lightweight, comfortable leather headband and the powerful sound billowing out of the baby bottom soft ear cups.

Korn

Whether you were a Jnco sportin’ supporter in the ‘90s, or you’re more into their recent collaboration with Skrillex, one thing’s for sure… the band Korn has lasting power. Similarly, so do House of Marley headphones. These are the last pair of headphones you will ever need.

Rich Medina

Two words describe Rich Medina: crate digger. Spending the better part of the past 30 years knee-deep in dust looking through vinyl records, Medina is notorious for finding impeccable copies of records once thought to be long gone. No one pays attention to the fine details of music like Medina, and House of Marley on-ear headphones like the Stir It Up model allow users to catch every snap, crackle and pop of beautiful vinyl records.

James Loney

As first baseman for the L.A. Dodgers, James Loney is used to the sounds of Dodger Stadium, and ultimately the House of Marley over-ear headphones experience isn’t much different from that. Whether standing at his base or at home relaxing, the stadium and headphones are both loud and cancel out the distractions of everyday life.

Travie McCoy

He wanted to be a millionaire so bad, became one, and now Travie McCoy of Gym Class Heroes is rocking House of Marley on-ear headphones. McCoy has gained a reputation as a rough-edged rapper who has a sweet side too. The same can be said for House of Marley headphones. Want to bump the heaviest hip-hop? House of Marley headphones will deliver it with a cushy softness you didn’t even know you were looking for.

Lil Jon

Maybe it’s been a minute since you last pulled out your Lil Jon impression. Take a second. Get it out of your system, we’ll wait. If you want to know what’s made an impression on Lil Jon himself, look no further than our Destiny over-ear headphones. Sleek and comfortable, it’s got everything to make you say, YEAHHHHHHHH!

LMFAO

Sexy and he knows it, Red Foo of LMFAO lives everyday to its fullest. That means turning any situation into a party, even if you’re alone. How best to do that? Take Red Foo’s advice and strap on some House of Marley Positive Vibration headphones and dial up a party rock anthem from LMAFO.

Kevin McDonald

As director of the new Bob Marley documentary, Marley, Academy Award winner Kevin McDonald has spent years diving into the reggae singer’s life and music, sporting House of Marley headphones along the way. Perfect for delivering the crisp treble and heavy bass necessary for listening to the top Bob Marley songs, McDonald shows off the Redemption Song headphones, which are embellished with pieces of recycled beach wood.

David Henrie

Wizards of Waverly Place star David Henrie lends his support to Stir It Up headphones too. Magic may not be a reality like it is on Henrie’s hit Disney TV show, but these headphones are putting a spell on ears all over the world.

Carrie Ann Inaba

Obviously, music is important to Carrie Ann Inaba. Because without music, how you gonna dance? This gorgeous Dancing with the Stars judge takes listening to music as seriously as she takes dancing to music. And to do that, she needs a serious pair of over-ear headphones like House of Marley’s Destiny model.

Many thanks to these big timers for the support. Like we said before, head over to our Facebook wall and show us which Marley headphones bring you sweet music!

Tons of Buzz for the New Bob Marley Movie

The new Bob Marley movie has been in theaters and available online for less than a week, but the Internet buzz is already accumulating for the definitive documentary. From hip-hop heroes and pop divas to the Marley family and director Kevin MacDonald, everyone is talking about this new portrait of the reggae superstar’s life.

Hip-hop legend Snoop Dogg attended the West Coast premiere of the new Bob Marley documentary. When speaking to the press, Snoop weaved a tale of how Bob Marley lifted his conscience to another, more peaceful, level. “Just to be able to have peace and love and harmony in the music that I make, that’s what I feel like I’ve gained from listening to Bob Marley’s music and being influenced by him,” Snoop said.

The love didn’t stop there though, as pop songstress and Marley aficionado Rihanna hit Twitter hard over the weekend with lots of love for Tuff Gong and the new documentary on his life. “I and I love Bob so much iz a shame.” Whether covering Marley songs at shows, her ever-present tri-color shirt or her dedication to charity work in her native Barbados, Rihanna exemplifies the #LiveMarley lifestyle.

Director Kevin MacDonald also has a deep appreciation for the legendary reggae icon, making his work on the Bob Marley documentary project a labor of love. While making his film The Last King of Scotland in Africa, MacDonald noticed, “There were so many people listening to Bob, wearing Bob t-shirts, with murals of Bob up.” MacDonald recalls, “They treated him more like a kind of spiritual figure or a philosopher than merely a musician. And I realized that’s kind of a unique position. Nobody else in popular music has had that position… and that is what really set me off on wanting to make a film about him.” A project years in the making, his vision (and the vision of the whole Marley family) has finally come true.

The Marley family was also out in full force at many of the film’s debut screenings. They gave MacDonald’s completed project unanimously high marks. Ziggy Marley, Bob’s eldest son, was on board with the movie from the ground up. “When the idea came up, I told the family about it. We have this opportunity to do something definitive on Bob. And everyone was cool about that,” Ziggy remembers.

Bob’s daughter Cedella agreed with her brother about Marley being the end-all be-all document of their father’s life. “It’s something that we have been trying to accomplish for about two or three years. We went from different director to director, but we met Kevin MacDonald and he brought everything that we were hoping for to life.”

Marley Movie Hits Los Angeles

The long-awaited feature-length documentary, Marley finally hit the big screen last night at its Los Angeles premiere. Music icons, A-List actors, international press, and a handful of proud Marley children were among those in attendance to celebrate the legacy of Bob Marley.

Directed by Oscar-winning filmmaker Kevin MacDonald, and made with the blessing of the Marley family, and the guidance of eldest son, Ziggy, Marley presents an intimate portrait of a music icon whose own way of life changed the lives of so many. On hand at the LA premiere of the Marley movie were artists like rap icon Snoop Dogg and country superstar Kenny Chesney — polar opposites on the genre meter, but like-minded admirers when it comes to Marley. Check out what both had to say about the universal impact of Marley from the red carpet:

The Marley movie will be screening in select theaters and available worldwide via Facebook, tomorrow April 20, 2012!
