About Maneli Jamal

In the artist’s words: Describe one of your earliest musical memories in detail. I remember playing video games when I was a young boy and having to put the controller down during a level of Mario 64. I was mesmerized by the beauty of the music. I knew I had to become a musician to try and evoke similar images to the listener. What are your top 3 all-time favorite albums on Apple Music, and why? Why did you choose these three albums in particular? Pat Metheny Group, Still Life (Talking) I have listened to Pat Metheny's work so much that it has greatly influenced my own music. His ability to tell stories through musical soundscapes is a work of art. I try to evoke similar images in my own music as well. Find a song of yours on Apple Music that you love and tell us what makes it special. Tell us why you chose this song. “Break of Dawn” Im sure many of you have stayed up all night doing something you love or playing your guitar until the sun rises. This was the melody from my piece called "Break of Dawn" that came out for me during one of those beautiful sunrises.⁠ Hope you enjoy! What’s one of the most memorable moments in your career so far? The most memorable experience so far has to be realizing that I get to play music for a living and share it with the world. The key word here is play. We don't "work" music. It is a playful experience that captures the essence of what life should be. Is there anything left on your bucket list as an artist or band? I would love to branch out a little more with my music to tick that off my bucket list. I already have a guitar and piano project which have been successful but I think trying out to learn the triangle is every musician's wet dream.
