ABOUT MANU MANZOProjecting emotional vocals over downtempo tropical moods, Manu Manzo shakes up Latin music with a simmering shot of soul. The Latin GRAMMY® Award-nominated singer, songwriter, and producer enchants with a signature style that’s both smooth and spellbinding. Growing up in Caracas, Venezuela, she developed a diverse musical palette as a kid, listening to everyone from Ella Fitzgerald to Celia Cruz and Alejandro Sanz. Relocating to Miami at just eleven years old, she dedicated herself to performing and writing, eventually gaining admission to the world-renowned Berklee College of Music. During her sophomore year, she put her newfound knowledge into practice by leaving audiences astonished and writing constantly. She formally introduced herself with the independent debut EP, Como Soy. It made major waves as she garnered a nomination in the category of “Best New Artist” at the 2015 Latin GRAMMY® Awards—unprecedented for an unsigned newcomer. She only increased her momentum with 2018’s Intermedio EP before unveiling Después de la 12 in 2019. Taking the reins creatively, she personally produced and composed the entire collection by herself. The single “Te Quiero Ver” [with Feid] notably amassed 1.2 million YouTube views and 469K Spotify streams. 2019 also saw her represent Venezuela in MIDEM’s Accelerator program as her banger “Caminando” generated over 5.1 million YouTube views. During 2021, she joined forces with Paty B for “Grande” before serving up a sultry sonic snapshot of her evolution on “SacaLaCamara.” Along the way, she has gathered 10 million-plus YouTube views and 10 million streams in addition to landing looks from Telemundo, Miami New Times, and Billboard who cited her as a “Latin Artist on the Rise.” Now, Manu Manzo only continues to captivate with more music to come.
