Tell us a bit about yourself?

Manaking. A highly original and unique Concept and Performance Artist delivering uncomprising crossover rock/rap music and stunning live visual performance

There are a lot of emerging artists in the UK right now. What sets you apart from the rest? I am not like the others.What’s your back-story?

I am a suicide survivor. My Art is my theropy, my medicine. Beware of taking someone else's medicine, some may feel the benefits, some may feel nothing, some may live and some may die. I have no formal training and cannot read music yet a create, write and play everything on my debut EP 'My Name Is Bedroom 7' (Available on Spotify etc)

What are you working on at the moment?
Toilet Circuit Tour of UK, Sweden and Germany. I am a live act and as such what to play and play and play and play anywhere and everywhere possible.

What's the first song you remember hearing?
Vivaldi four seasons (but it was probably most likely Happy Birthday and like most of my childhood have just blocked it out)

You're in a Karaoke Bar - What's your go to song?
Karaoke is definitely not my thing. Infact I was thrown out of a Karaoke Bar in Japan for using to much profanity on a song I decided to make my own.

What was the first gig you went to?
Cookie Crew?

Which song do you wish you'd written?
I don't wish, I write them.

Which song changed your life?
Songs don't change your life, heartbreak, trauma, decisions and accidents do.
Come on now... The power of song, really NME...Get over yourself.

Which song would you like played at your funeral?
Vitali - Chaconne in G minor

What song is stuck in your head right now?
All American Rejects - Heartbeat Slowing Down

What was the first Album you bought?
Ice cube - Amerikkkas most wanted I believe, either that or Electro 1, swiftly followed by Electro 2,3,4,5,6,7 etc

Which song made you want to play music?
The Duck Song. Someone needs to bring balance into the world
