Manny Blu: Taking The Lead
Vocalist and performer Manny Blu, has released the music video for “Might As Well Lead”. Written by Aaron Eshuis, Joe Clemmons, and Logan Wall, the new track gives fans a taste of what they can expect on the new EP to be released later this year. This year, the former hockey player, MMA fighter also launched the live performance series Live & Turned Up on his Official YouTube page. Known for his dynamic live performances, Blu and his band wanted to recreate the energy of a live show in each Live & Turned Up series, saying, “I wanted to lean into alternative content, and I thought playing our live versions of songs and recording them was a fun way to do that we wanted to showcase how exciting our live show is.” On “Might As Well Lead,” Blu uses the tune of a violin, steady drum beats, and his compelling vocals to belt about how if a lover wants to fall for someone who isn’t the best for them, they might as well go all in. Produced by Ryan Atenhan, directed by Sean Davé, and filmed at the Franklin Theater in Franklin, Tenn., the video creates a cinematic adventure as black and white tones mixed with pops of color show a couple falling for each other amongst the shadows.

The promising artist expanded his team to an international level through added representation in the US and the UK, successfully releasing his EP New Ink filled with major songwriters like Josh Osborne, Ross Copperman, and Rhett Akins, and finding success with his debut release from that project “Born to Ride,” reaching over 360K views on YouTube and surpassing over 1M streams worldwide.
