Concerning Ky-Mani Marley’s career as a singer, he released his debut album “Like Father Like Son” in 1996, which was produced by David Lee.

His second album “The Journey” (2000) was produced by Ky-Mani himself, but even though the album was well evaluated by critics, it did not enter the music charts. The following studio album entitled “Many More Roads” (2001) was nominated for a Grammy Award as the Best Reggae Album.
