Nine Miles is a solo project, created by Yoshiaki Manabe, named after the town in which Bob Marley grew up in Jamaica. He is in charge of everything (excluding some track mixing). Plays all instruments that are heard in the albums. Manabe draws influence from reggae legend Bob Marley to build his own unique reggae sound. Manabe's constant use of reverbs, electronic effects, horns, among others are what give him his incredibly unique sound. The arrangement of instruments only adds to the uniqueness.
