After a long hiatus, it finally seems that R&B as a genre is set for a major comeback. With the decline of autotune-abusive songs by non-singers, the recent signings of exciting new vocalists by major labels, and a demand by fans for the feeling that ‘90s and ‘00s R&B super hits gave them to come back, singer/songwriter/producer Emanny has found himself in the middle of a perfect storm. And with his soulful, expressive voice and songwriting talents with subject matter that ranges from romantic & raunchy to scorned & seductive, he’s looking forward to the forecast.
Born Emanny Salgado in New York City to a musically talented family, it was only a matter of time before a young Emanny followed in his relatives' footsteps and explored his creative side as well. At age fourteen, Emanny decided to pursue music seriously, and began singing with the world renowned Boys Choir of Harlem. It was during this time that he and members of the choir formed a group called DyNaste, where Emanny served the role of lead vocalist and songwriter who loved any opportunity to perform on stage. Though ultimately DyNaste disbanded, Emanny continued his career as a singer, this time on his own.
Since his teenage years, Emanny’s tenacity, talent, and passion for music has put him in the studio and on stage with major talent that includes singers Tank, Trey Songz, Donnell Jones, Miguel, Ginuwine, the late Gerald Levert, and Patti Labelle as well as rappers Joe Budden and Jadakiss. Now with over a decade of experience in the music industry, a number of tours, and thousands of fans, Emanny is set to have an incredible future in music. This year, fans can anticipate a number of major collaborations including three features on Joe Budden’s album "No Love Lost," fresh new singles, and the second installment of his R&B mixtape series "Songs About HER".
