Manny Torres is a Chicago based singer-songwriter that lives for the passion filled experience of his live shows! His music brings the secular and the sacred into conversation with each other, as he writes and covers songs that demonstrate the beauty, pain, and hope that comprise the human experience as a whole. Through his warm soulful voice, he sings about heartbreak and overcoming difficulties in life, and his ineffable joy resides underneath his sorrow. The effect of this is that Manny enables his listeners to bring their own hurting hearts into song with his—he creates space for them to fully feel their pain, release it, and partake in the musical healing offered by his voice. Manny’s music is an invitation to his listeners to embrace their hopes and fears, their joys and sadnesses and find peace and calm within the messiness of life. Drawing from influences as diverse as John Legend, Maroon 5, and the Weeknd, he creates music with a strong pop sensibility all his own.

Manny found National fame as one of the top 14 finalists on American Idol’s final season on Fox. Soon after his return home to Chicago, he was diagnosed with cancer and was forced to hit pause on his music career as he fought through 4 cycles of Chemo. In mid 2018, he emerged completely cancer free and has since released 4 singles and continued to perform live nationally, including a partnership with Choose Chicago to represent the city for the Year of Chicago Music in 2020. After a promising start with big shows in Times Square and Mexico City, Covid hit and forced another indefinite pause.

Manny released his first single, "Real Lies" in 2018, along with his accompanying official Music Video. His next single, “I Do” was released at the end of April, 2019 and was picked up by Spotify’s Fresh Finds Playlist with almost 700,000 followers and quickly started to gain traction! His single, “I Feel It” was released on October 4th, 2019 and had its exclusive premier on Vocalo Radio 91.1 FM in Chicago and has quickly gained traction locally. Cruise dropped on October 23rd of 2020 with its official music video following that up a week later. His latest release, "I Still Stand" dropped in the middle of 2021 in the midst of the pandemic, and was selected as Vocalo Radio's Top 4 for In Rotation!
