‘Naked’ the first single from ‘Face First’ was on the popular Canadian TV show 'Kim's Convenience' (Netflix, CBC Television).
The second single 'Prudence', (released May 29, 2020 & reimagined version by the
artist L CON June 12, 2020), is an uplifting song enveloped in lush synth soundscapes.
Mani describes the song in his words below.
"I wrote 'Prudence' shortly after an artist had a photographer take my photograph. They had that photo enlarged onto a 48/36 inch canvas, and then painted glasses and a cigarette in my mouth and painted me darker. The next time I saw it, I was a bit lighter, without glasses and a cigarette. This experience inspired me to compose this song. It’s about revealing your true self—no matter what anyone's perception.”
Mani’s latest release ‘Face First’ is a series of seven songs that take the listener on a journey through self acceptance, falling in love and shedding insecurities faced when offering our true selves.
