With reggae music finding mainstream success in the United States and abroad, the crossover appeal of superstar talent such as Sean Paul, Elephant Man, and Wayne Wonder has resonated with artists creating fan bases worldwide. Now Ky-Mani Marley, international reggae phenomenon and son of the iconic Bob Marley, is giving back to his fans in a whole new way.
Marley serves as the premiere artist for the newly launched VOX Music Group, an independent record label created by Voxonic Inc., innovators of a patent voice conversion technology which can convert songs into over 1,400 languages with a 99% accuracy and voice retention rate. Marley will be releasing his first album in five years on the label, with various singles to be released in languages such as Spanish and French.
Marley’s last release, Many More Roads, was nominated for a Grammy in 2001 and earned him a spot on an extensive worldwide tour with the multi-talented artist Wyclef Jean. Ky-Mani Marley has been well-received worldwide from audiences and critics alike with his unique sound of classical reggae beats mixed with contemporary hip-hop.
“We are excited to have the opportunity to launch the Vox Music Group with great projects such as Vox Files Version 1 and Ky-Mani Marley,” said Arie Deutsch, Co-owner of Vox Music Group. “The fact that we have gotten the support of such well respected Hip-Hop artists and signed a high caliber artist such as Ky-Mani Marley validates our music experience and extensive relationships in the industry.”
“I am excited to be the first artist signed to Vox Music Group as it allows me to create a partnership with my label,” says Ky-Mani Marley. “Signing with Vox Music Group allows me to bring my music to the next level by combining my artistic creativity with their innovative global marketing ideas to create a sound which will broaden my existing fan base.”
