Quote from Manny Blu about ‘New Ink’ album

I wanted the album to sound the way we do live. There’s more rock, more soul, and more volume this time around. It’s bigger and louder, but it’s still me. And more importantly, it’s still fun.

Express Review

Cool songs.  In the past, I like to play a game that I like to call #ucanonlypick1.  Hmmm…my favourite from the album is Track 2 ‘Sink’. It is about hitting the bottom of a bottle of Jack while “watching it all go down the sink” after a difficult breakup.  A very catchy song with great songwriting.

Tell us your pick.
