Manny Blu releases his latest single “Valet” featuring NBC’s The Voice contestant and SiriusXM Canadian Top of the Country finalist, Brittany Kennell.
Manny’s genre of music is not just country; it’s a hybrid that blends the storytelling of country, the hard-charging guitars of rock & roll, the anthemic melodies of pop, and the raw rebellion of punk to form a country-punk sound. As you listen to songs off his upcoming EP, you will hear this country-rock blend that is uniquely Manny Blu.

In addition to “Valet,” Manny recently released two songs, “Train” and “Might As Well Lead.” “Train” already has 1M streams on Spotify and is rising everyday. The new music gives fans a first listen of what’s to come on his forthcoming EP, due out later this year.
He also filmed a Live & Turned Up Vol 2 series at the Exit/In in Nashville. The Live & Turned Up Vol 2 series began on April 30 with Manny Blu performing a Machine Gun Kelly cover of “Kiss Kiss”. The series will also take on a cover of Miley Cyrus’ “Prisoner” and Blu’s personal collection of “Train,” “Playback,” and “Rusty Things.”
“We wanted to bring the road to our fans, and we picked songs that could show off the band’s abilities in different ways,” says Manny. “‘Live & Turned Up’ isn’t just a showcase for my songs. It’s also a chance for me to play songs by the other artists who’ve inspired me, encapsulate it all together, and do my own thing.”

In a city steeped in tradition, Manny Blu has proudly broken from the pack, building a bridge between Nashville’s musical past and future. He moved to town in September 2018 and released Leave It Like It Is one year later, promoting the debut album with a year’s worth of shows on both sides of the USA/Canadian border. The Montreal native has carved a path for himself in Music City with a unique sound unlike other artists in town.
