Phil Manca

 

| Blues Rock - France

After paying a tribute to Gary Moore for nearly 2 years, ERA’s early guitarist Phil Manca released his first "heavy blues rock" album "Signs" late 2018. His second album “Dancing Spirits” will be available end-2020.

From his hard-rock roots in the early 80’s (TNT) to his latest productions, Phil has always combined his talent as a guitarist and a song-writer. While he has collaborated with many bands such as Sortilège (French metal band), Barbara Schenker, singer Renaud Hantson (Starmania/Tycoon), ERA's first album (6 million copies sold) and several film soundtracks ; he wrote and ... produced the rock-opera "Ypse" and the musical "Jack et le haricot magique" a successful rock musical for children inspired by the story of Jack and the beanstalk.

Today he's back to his musical roots, the music for what the electric guitar was created. Back to the blues-rock!

Après avoir rendu hommage à Gary Moore pendant presque 2 ans, Phil Manca, guitariste originel de ERA, sort son premier album de “heavy blues rock” intitulé “Signs” fin 2018. Son deuxième album "Dancing Spirits" est prévu pour fin 2020.

De ses racines hard-rock au début des années 80 jusqu’à ses dernières productions, Phil a su toujours combiner ses talents de guitariste hors-pair et de compositeur.
Tout en écrivant et produisant l’opéra-rock “Ypse” (Trianon/Paris) et la comédie musicale à succès “Jack et le haricot magique” un spectacle musical rock pour les enfants (Olympia/Casino de Paris/Alhambra/Tournées), il a collaboré avec beaucoup de groupes comme Sortilège (groupe français de heavy metal), Barbara Schenker, le chanteur Renauld Hantson (Starmania), mais surtout Eric Levi (Shakin Street) pour le premier album de ERA (hit “Ameno”, plus de 6 millions d’albums vendus) et plusieurs musiques de films.

Aujourd’hui il renoue avec ses racines musicales, la musique pour laquelle la guitare électrique a été conçue : Retour au blues (rock).
