Manny Goossen

For fans of:SOHN, Rhye, James Blake, Dustin Tebbutt, S. Carey

Manny blends electronic soundscapes with classical piano melodies and his honest falsetto. The result is an ethereal, electro-soul feeling. Manny's of the belief that music is an extension of the soul, and his uplifting lyrics, harmonies, and instrumentation uphold the statement.

During the cold Winnipeg winters, Manny spends most of his time playing, improvising, and composing on his family’s out-of-tune yet pleasingly warm upright piano.

In 2015, Manny channelled his creativity into songwriting and wrote "Step Into the Light," a pulsating perpetual canon. He entered it on a whim into that same year’s CBC Music’s Searchlight competition—a top-10 finalist for Manitoba. The song’s positive reception propelled Manny to continue to write and record his original piano-driven compositions he kept to himself.

After two years of stowing away and refining his craft, 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.

Manny's new EP Life as it is, released in early 2018, is a soulful reflection on the hidden yearning to rid ourselves of today's digital influence and the inherent pull to find a purpose for our lives.
