Ky-Mani Marley Rides Success of New Album, Tours With Van Halen

“Ky-Mani Marley incurred favor with the crowd by opening his half hour set with Roots, Rock, Reggae and finishing with No Woman, No Cry, two songs from his late father Bob Marley’s repertoire. However, he flashed his own charismatic side by enthralling the crowd with The March, a hip-hop/reggae hybrid song from his new album, Radio, that juxtaposed the war in Iraq with street violence.”
USA Today

“The husky-voiced Ky-Mani Marley opened, leading his slick, spare and heavy band through a…reggae set studded with the hits of his father.”
Los Angeles Times

“Marley is equally adept at singing and rapping, which might explain why ‘Radio’ has made headway on both the reggae and hip-hop album charts in Billboard magazine.”
San Diego Union Tribune
