In 1999, they founded the record label Young Tree Records with which they recorded their first album, called Young Tree. The name of the album comes from the idea of being all on one level (on ground floor) and to learn as equals from there with no hierarchies or social classes. In most of their songs, this band uses percussion style nyabinghi, which was used in religious assemblies Rastafarians grounations that had the idea of all being equal.

Inner Circle released their first album in 1974 under the label Trojan Records. Then they recorded Everything Is Great in the year 1979 at Island Records. It went on to reach the top 20 charts in the United Kingdom. The band's style was decisively marked by one of its original members and lead singer Jacob Miller, who died in a car accident on March 23rd, 1980.
After the loss of Jacob Miller, the band split in 1982, after the release of another album entitled Something So Good.

Reggae is a music genre that originated in Jamaica in the 1960s and is a synthesis of Ska and Rocksteady. It also draws its inspiration from other styles of music such as; rhythm and blues(R&B), jazz and mento. Reggae is not just a music genre it is of paramount importance as it is a representation of Jamaican culture and their inspirations in true sense of the word. Thus, the genre has grown by leaps and bounds since its inception and has today developed into a global phenomenon. Reggae is an outcome of the painful ordeal faced by the people from the ghettos of Kingston in Jamaica. It was a voice of the oppressed belonging to the Trench Town. As many suffered at the hands of political leaders, their heart-wrenching cries imbued with anguish and pain later transformed into what we know now as the reggae music. Thus, The Abbysinians, Toots and the Maytals, The Pragons, Wailing Souls, Ernest Rangling, Dean Fraser, The Techniques are among many the Trench Town was home to. But above all it is Bob Marley who is considered to be one of the most influential reggae singers of all time.
