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 own 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 #30 of the Viral 50 Dutch charts on Spotify. The track has not only been frequently played on Dutch radio but Marnix also aced five performances live on air. On top, he made his TV debut on national Television in The Netherlands. The reactions speak for themselves: “Very special!” (Giel Beelen, Radio Veronica), “Unbelievably good” (Wout2Day, NPO Radio 2) and “Wonderchild” (Linda Magazine).
