RastaMiles is a roots rock reggea group from Suffolk, VA. With influences ranging from Soja, Tribal Seeds, Bob Marley, and Peter Tosh. Their music contains a heavy roots rock vibe with conscious lyrics to back it up. RastaMiles released their first full length album "I Revolutionary" in January of 2013 and released their single "Right Here" later that year. After taking some time to redefine themselves, and adding the new bassist, Miguel Abbott, they are currently working on an EP expected to be released in the last quarter of 2015.
Nicholas Leach lead guitar/vocals. "If you pay attention to anything in our songs, let it be the lyrics, cause the message is key. Word, Sound, Power. Bless"

I saw RastaMiles at Buddas place on Dec 29th. They were playing a benefit for "Save the TaTa's". RastaMiles was by far the best band of the night. RastaMiles played great original music they said will be featured on the album "I Revolutionary" which is supposed to be released 1-24-13.
Response from RastaMiles:
Thank You for the kind words, We had a great time for a great cause! Jah Love!
RastaMiles played for my party. their energy is fantastic and everyone enjoyed their music. They play mostly original music, and I find myself humming their songs all the time. I would recommend RastaMiles to anyone looking for great entertainment.
Live performances with RastaMiles are vibrant, fun, and relaxed. Everyone will dance, sing, and find a new favorite song. Rastamiles will enchant young to experienced, and some will be supprised when they find they can relate with the rastafari message. If reggae is not in your heart, It is just because you have not yet experienced RastaMiles!

Nicholas Leach the lead guitarist/vocals. I was born on June 26, 1995 in Springfield, Missouri then moved here to Suffolk, Virginia when I turned 9. I got into reggae music a little before I found Rastafari. October 24th, 2009 is the date I gave Iself to Jah, and since then it's been a great ride. I "made" RastaMiles shortly after. If you pay attention to anything in our songs, let it be the lyrics, cause the message is key. Word, Sound, Power. Bless
This is Steven Ange, percussionist. I was born and raised in Suffolk, VA. I met Chris and Nick in 2010 and started playing Reggae pretty much as soon as I met them. Rastafari saved me from a self-destructive lifestyle, and so I've dedicated myself to spreading the message. Jah bless
My name is Chris Zuniga, I was born in Cleveland Ohio and moved to Suffolk Va when I was 14. My ethnicity is Latino Indian, its from a small country in Central America named Nicaragua. I got into RastaMiles about two years after I moved here and its been a joyfull ride since. We want to spread a message of love, life and happiness. Our music means everything to us and we want to spread the Rasta word throughout the world.
