Projecting emotional vocals over downtempo R&B 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 eleven-years-old, she eventually gained admission to the world-renowned Berklee College of Music.
She formally introduced herself with the independent debut EP, Como Soy. It made waves as she garnered a nomination in the category of “Best New Artist” at the 2015 Latin GRAMMY® Awards. She only increased her momentum with 2018’s Intermedio EP before unveiling Después de la 12 in 2019. “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 5.1 million YouTube views. She also represented Venezuela in 2020s Viña Del Mar festival. During 2021, she joined forces with Paty B for “Grande” before serving up the sultry “SacaLaCamara.”
2022 showed glimpses of all the music that will be part of her new album “Luna En Geminis” due to be released early 2023.
To date, she has gathered 12 million-plus YouTube views and 10 million streams in addition to landing looks from Telemundo, Miami New Times, NFL super bowl experience and Billboard who cited her as a “Latin Artist on the Rise.” After her captivating performance opening up the main stage at III Points Festival 2022 with artists like Flume & Rosalia, MANU MANZO keeps pushing her vision forward with more music to come.
