We all have our memories of the great voices of old that are always remembered and never forgotten. But we still wonder is there any of that silky unique suave style of music and voice left in this day and time. The answer is yes and his name Manny Lewis. The smooth contemporary crooner draws soul and authenticity from the great classic artists of yesterday, while invoking a silky tone and controlled edge that sets him apart as a vocal force.
Born in Salisbury, NC and primarily raised in both Baltimore City and Jamaica, Queens, Manny Lewis comes from a very spiritual and musical household. His father was a pastor and his mother an accomplished classical pianist & dramatic soprano -Manny was destined to encompass an intrinsic vocal gift that encapsulates listeners in a musical Kaleidoscope filled with emotion, passion and style.
Manny began writing rhymes and rapping at age 12; he wrote, produced, and recorded his own songs.He discovered that not only could he rap, but he could also sing, after a young lady heard a hook that he referenced for her to sing, she urged him to sing his own music. He was 16, and her words planted a seed in him that he cultivated for the next several years. Manny decided to develop his musicianship by studying vocal legends of the past such as Nat King Cole, Marvin Gaye, and Sam Cooke, just to name a few.
Given his colorful background, Manny Lewis is no stranger to the music industry. His freshman project, “Mr. NeoClassic” which was released in 2018, debuted at No. 5 on the UK Charts. He lit the charts with a cool mid-tempo Summer single entitled “Pretty Girl” produced by Kareem “K-Mack” Mack (Destiny’s Child, Eve). He has also worked with other veteran producers such as by Herb Middleton (Usher, Kenny Lattimore, and Al Green) & Jae Deal (Janet Jackson,Lady Gaga, and Ne-Yo etc.)
Now Manny Lewis is ready to take his artistry to another level. He just inked a record deal with One Crown Music Group headed by industry veteran, Sean Burgess. The Soul Singer believes the best is yet to come in his musical journey. He is ready to chart his own path while resonating the creativity that encompasses the ingredients of a legend in music.
