During the cold Winnipeg winters, Manny spends most of his time playing, improvising, and composing on his family’s out-of-tune yet charming, warm upright piano.
In 2015, Manny wrote the pulsating perpetual canon Step Into the Light
. It placed as a top-10 finalist for Manitoba in CBC Music’s Searchlight competition. The song’s positive reception propelled Manny to continue to write and record his original piano-driven compositions.
Manny released his debut album Idea of Love
in 2017. It’s about finding your way through a transition of life while searching for and realizing unconditional love.
In early 2018, Manny released his follow-up EP Life as It Is
: a soulful reflection on the hidden yearning to rid yourself of today's digital influence and the inherent pull to find a purpose for your life.
