"Wonderful songs, wonderful sound, and a voice that is so rich, expressive and powerful." David Kenney, WBAI Radio, (Pacifica)
"...sophisticated pop songcraft, and accomplished keyboard work..." ASCAP Playback Magazine
"Manjovi is a solid musician with an enticing voice..." NY Daily News
"Manjovi is a talented and introspective musician...a warmth and honesty that endear him to the crowd." Backstage Newspaper
"...awesome vocals, and a monster piano player..." Oregon Daily Courier
That's just some of what the critics are saying about New York City-based Singer songwriter musician Dan Manjovi. Yes, you heard it right - DAN MANJOVI! Sounds very similar to that other talented Italian-American singer songwriter from New Jersey. Well, you may have heard BonJovi, but if you haven't heard MANJOVI, start listening, you're in for something new!
Dan's songs are both haunting and fun, and his lyrics are both clever and introspective (you can clearly hear every word, by the way!). And it's all punctuated with Manjovi's smooth tenor voice and trademark, piano and keyboard work. And now he is breaking through to an increasingly growing audience!
A native New Yorker, Manjovi honed his musical skills at NYU and Julliard. He studied acting at Ensemble Studio Theatre, and elsewhere. Afterward he learned the ropes performing locally and throughout the country as a musician, singer actor and writer, gaining attention along the way.
Audiences and listeners respond instantly to Dan's smooth tenor voice, his piano-driven arrangements, and captivating words and music. Manjovi's music, though reminiscent of Sting, Billy Joel, and Elton John, is completely unique and accessible at the same time. Dan says, " I write a story with words and music, and it comes through my voice and my fingers."
Listen, enjoy… and most of all thanks!
And be sure to catch Dan Manjovi & His Band when they come to your city!
