Biography

In a time that is monopolized by bands of the latest trend, cookie-cut and nearly indistinguishable from each other, Manna Zen stands out, from their name to their music, their live performance and even their ever-growing fan base. These Florida rockers aren’t trying to top any other act out there, but carve their own path in the journey of music, and bring you along on their ride. With an idiosyncratic sound that spans a variety of genres, and lyrics that tattoo a permanent place in your subconscious, Manna Zen has a little bit of what even the most fastidious music connoisseur is searching for. Jacksonville’s X102.9 FM says : “Manna Zen (is) one of the most original bands… And (the) ZENation are crazy fans.”


Merriam-Webster’s dictionary defines Manna as : “A) food miraculously supplied to the Israelites in their journey through the wilderness B) divinely supplied spiritual nourishment; a usually sudden and unexpected source of gratification, pleasure, or gain”, and Zen as “ a Japanese sect of Mahayana Buddhism that aims at enlightenment by direct intuition through meditation”. It was these two words, from vastly different spiritual beliefs, that front man and founder Hayden Vega felt applied to the creation and fulfillment of music. He says “Music is what feeds the soul, like Manna from Heaven, and quiets its discord, like the best meditation.”
