ABOUT MANNY WALTERS
Manny Walters is a distinct South African singer-songwriter with influences rooted deeply in rhythm and blues, rock , and soul music.
The artist may describe his sound as ‘electric rhythm & blues/ alternative soul’, but, whatever designation you choose to apply, one thing is clear – Manny Walters is imbued with an intuitive and instinctive musicality that is rare indeed in its authenticity and gravitas.
Influenced by the work of Richie Havens, Prince, Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye, Tracy Chapman and Curtis Mayfield, Walters delivers his intelligently poised lyricism with the kind of passionate, soulful intensity that is as timeless in its ambition as it is inspirational in its contemporary appeal, the grit-flecked, raw soul of his commanding voice profoundly resonant in its ability to captivate the listener.
In the pursuit of creating authentic, raw street soul music from the Southern tip of Africa – Walters is the kind of emerging artist who will readily find favor with those who desire music that appeals to the conscience just as easily as it satisfies the soul.
