Rhode Island singer/songwriter Manny X stopped by #BennettKnowsRadio to discuss his anticipated album Xscapism. Manny been singing all of his life but things were really put into motion after he won the Guitar Center Presents: Your Next Record Competition back in 2012. Beating hundreds of applicants, Manny was given the opportunity to record a 3-song EP with T-Pain. After putting out the collaboration EP titled Genesis, Manny felt the pressure of following-up with another project only this time around, the ball was in his court. Taking away from many experiences, Manny found himself writing music that represented himself and many others. “One thing I’ve learned through songwriting and allowing myself to be open. There are a lot of people are afraid to be vulnerable. Reality is you have to fake it until you make it. You gotta do what you got to do, just because someone is watching. I figured if someones watching then why not be me,” Manny explained. Manny hopes that Xscapism serves as not only an escape for himself through his own music but for the listeners and fans as well! Currently, Manny is preparing for his album debut for later this year! Get to know Manny X! Check out his #BennettKnowsRadio interview and performance below!
