When it comes to musical legends, few have made the worldwide impact of reggae super-star, Bob Marley. His star is so bright in fact, that it shines on in the musical talent of his offspring, and second youngest son Ky-Mani is no exception. With his debut album Radio dropping September 25th on Vox Music Group, and his hit single One Time (click here to listen) blowing up the airwaves, Ky-Mani is now able to announce his tour plans with rock megastars Van Halen. Beginning September 25th in Miami, FL with an in-store promo stop at the Dolphin Mall, the tour routes through 51 major cities, including Canada .
Ky-Mani's musical versatility makes him the perfect candidate for this tour as he refuses to be pigeon-holed as just a reggae artist. Instead he incorprates everything he loves into his sound, including blues, world music, hip-hop and rock, preventing categorization. The end result is one that transcends all cultural lines. Like his father, Ky-Mani's raw, unadulterated, spirit-filled sound captures his listeners and reverberates his life story. Radio is filled with such music and boasts the production of Red Spyda, Ky Miller and J Vibes.
Ky-Mani is blessed enough to be as captivating on-screen as he is on stage and fans of the street classic Shottas (over 300,000 sold since it's official DVD release) will get to see him not only reprise that role in the upcoming sequel, but watch him share the screen with Bill Paxton and Orlando Bloom in the Frank Flowers helmed Haven, which recently debuted at the Toronto Film Festival.
As if that isn't enough (and kudos must go to his management Purfek Storm), Ky-Mani will also take over the television world with his upcoming BET reality show entitled Life as a Marley.
