ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
It's not time to make a change / Just sit down, take it slowly
You're still young, that's your fault / There's so much you have to go through

Sound advice…but this isn’t really something that can wait.

Even at 20 years old, Jake Manzi has stories to tell. They are well-crafted realizations of his current place in the world, where he wants to go, who he wants to take with him.

The stories are wrapped up in a sound that remembers Jackson Browne’s “Late for the Sky” as much as it references the modern sound of Bahamas’ “Bahamas is Afie.”

Manzi’s guitar, his voice, and his need to tell these stories, are his birthright.

His father was on MTV once, playing in a band. His cousin Angelo plays the ukulele. His brothers can sing and play, just like his aunts and uncles did before them. They all play still, the whole lot of them, at informal (but mandatory) Sunday dinners where they break out new songs, old songs, and songs from the Old World.

It is from this setting that Manzi has emerged with his guitar and a passion for delving below the surface of things, where the real stories are told.

Manzi’s debut is called “Singing to the Wall.”

These are his stories.

“At least some of them,” says Manzi. “This is a blueprint, a sample of where I want to go with my music.”

The recording features guitarist Caleb Rosazza, bassist Jacob Rosazza, and drummer Jake Edwards. Just below the surface you will hear his cousin’s ukulele, his father’s voice, and the breadth and depth of his heritage.
