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 is called Marnix Emanuel and was born and raised in the city of Amsterdam, as the oldest of four musical brothers and a singing sister.
Music has become the center of his life.
Marnix Emanuel started playing guitar and piano at an early age and soon after composed his own songs.
From the age of twelve until seventeen he joined the Young Talent Jazz section of the Conservatorium in Amsterdam.
When growing up, he discovered that his true heart lies in pop music and Marnix continued his music education at Berklee College of Music in Boston and the Conservatorium in Rotterdam.
After graduation at the age of twenty-one, Marnix has worked
with several established producers to further develop his producing and songwriting skills. Throughout the years, a wide range of artists inspired Marnix, such as Freddie Mercury, Elvis Presley, Bryan Adams, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Bill Evans, Oscar Peterson, Frank Sinatra and more.
Feeling a strong need to find and create his own sound, Marnix locked himself up in his studio cave.
This studio was built so that Marnix could shape and perfect his sound.
Years of hard work and endless dedication have created quite a collection of pop songs, ranging from ballads to pop to pop/rock.
Just before the summer of 2018, Marnix got signed with Sony/ATV Music Publishing.
Marnix dreams to find a connection with global audiences that enjoy listening to artists like Adele, John Mayer and, Ed Sheeran.
