When a boy of just three years old climbs on a restaurant table and entertains the guests with his song and an imaginary guitar, something special is going on. This boy, Marnix Emanuel, was born and raised in the city of Amsterdam, as the oldest of four musical brothers and a singing sister. Marnix Emanuel started singing and playing guitar and piano at an early age. Together with his siblings, Marnix jammed day and night in the living room of his parent’s house. Soon after he began writing and composing his original songs.
Throughout the years, a wide range of artists inspired Marnix, such as Freddie Mercury, Elvis Presley, Frank Sinatra, and more.
Feeling a strong need to find and create his sound, Marnix locked himself up in the Golden Love Music studio in Amsterdam. He continued creating and producing his music.
Years of hard work and endless dedication have resulted in a collection of beautiful pop songs, for people who love listening to artists such as Adele, John Mayer, and Ed Sheeran.
Marnix released his debut single, “Right Through Me”, independently on March 29th, 2019.
This ballad describes the vulnerability of performing artists on stage and of course, these feelings Marnix has to endure himself. Within a few months, it reached over a million streams and even made it into the Viral 50 Netherlands chart on Spotify. At the moment “Right Through Me” has more than 6 million streams. The track has not only been frequently played on Dutch radio but Marnix also was invited to play several performances live on air. On top, he made his TV debut on national television in The Netherlands. In the meantime two new singles of Marnix with music video got released:
“New York” a powerful pop-rock song that has been widely supported by NPO Radio 2. “You Are Amazing” a beautiful love pop song that reached the BAE and Stay Tuned! Playlist on Spotify and has been featured in various Dutch TV programs. “You Are Amazing” is also synched in a product commercial of Pfizer/Ibrance in 2020.
For the past months, Marnix worked in his studio on new songs, that will release throughout 2021. An exciting year ahead for the artist!
