Biography

Manny Garcia is a singer, songwriter, and pianist born and raised in Chicago, IL. Starting piano lessons at age four and vocal lessons at age five, it wasn’t until eighteen that he put the two together—writing original songs and putting his own twist on existing ones. Manny’s compositions garnered him attention from the college community, while his cover of “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” became one of YouTube’s early viral videos. In Fall 2009, Manny wrapped up his most recent album, the Come With Me EP, and is promoting and travelling for shows across the country.

Manny also gained some media attention from a YouTube video he posted in December. His Glee cover of Cyndi Lauper’s “True Colors” and Wicked’s “Defying Gravity” caught the eye of the show’s leading cast member Cory Monteith (“Finn” on Glee), who shared the video via Twitter. Since then, there have been several blogs and articles about Monteith’s tweet and Manny’s video, including TV Guide, Entertainment Weekly, and The Chicago Sun Times.

Manny’s latest project has been putting together the four-piece Manny Garcia Band, a group of multitalented, multi-instrumental musicians with the same jazzy, soulful vibe. Despite being new, the group already has a number of bookings, including venues such as the House of Blues in Chicago.
