Interview with Pete Devine of Pete’s Rock News and Views (http:// petesrocknewsandviews.com)
PD: What type of artist are you?
EB: Emanuel is the type of artist that originally likes to let his voice out through the simple way, with him and his piano but tries to extend himself I trying more different styles when it come down to telling his story through his music
PD: Tell us the brief history of yourself.
EB: Emanuel has a master degree in Musical theatre, and has been dancing his whole life, he played ice-hockey as a youngster but at seven years of age he was told by his coach the he sucked, that he lacked the balance… that could have stoped Emanuel but instead he though about how he could get better and by coincidence a lady showed up a week later at school and had a dance session with his whole class and a light was lit in his mind… so, he asked if he could start and after that he could never stop, and when he turned 18 he left ice-hockey and left his whole soul in to the arts of music, he has left the idea of being a musical artist and here he is today, hoping that you can see hem for who he is, instead of the person/caracter he expects to be.
PD: Who are your musical and non-musical influences?
EB: His mom has always played the piano in the church that she works in, as a church-musician , and especially now when she is on the brink of life and struggles with cancer she gives him the inspiration on creating new music in dedication to her.
