Musical Prodigy Eli Manna Is Putting Art Back In Artist

One can agree that although there are many songs that are appealing to the ear, very few have that “magic.” We call those classics. The truth is that there just aren’t many artist today capable of capturing that magic in their music. But one artist out of Jacksonville, FL has mastered it down to a science.

Justin Elijah D’Anthony Reid, known by many as Eli Manna, is a musician that provides what music lovers have been yearning for for years. Eli’s diverse catalog of music leaves listeners expecting the unexpected. With his recent release of “The God Complex”, a 10 genre album, it only solidifies the colorful ear candy and lyricism that is Eli Manna.

“The God Complex” is an ambitious, sprawling album, one that shows off Eli Manna’s exquisite taste and uncanny ability to explore a whole history’s worth of styles with ease. This album is notable for the fact that it contains 10 separate genres. And In that same breath Eli is somehow able to hold together everything in an artistically cohesive way. The songs all feel like they’re connected to the same project. Nothing seems out of place on the shelf, despite the variety of flavorful jams.

To call Eli Manna a rapper is outright comical and disrespectful. Rapping, singing, playing piano, songwriting and conducting are some of the gems that lie within his talents. Eli describes music as the “universal language” in the sense that it has to ability to be recognized by anybody in the world. He goes on to specify that music has the power to “electrify the body, calm the mind and sway the spirit.” Following that belief, Eli Manna creates music with the intent to move the souls of all who hear it. Music holds a deep root in the mind of the star. He describes it as a “scary obsession”, something the he neither hates nor loves to pursue, but has too. The brand of Eli Manna is one that is meant to heal people. Not just through music, but throughout life itself. And following the trajectory of the musical pioneer, we are confident he will accomplish that time and time again.

My method of studying music is with my instructors and directors, current artists who consistently win and the great music legends I stream on YouTube. When you find my music I want you to … feel love, inspired to have great relationships and chasing your dreams.
