Feeling a bit camera shy


Born and raised on the lively twin islands of Trinidad and Tobago, Francesco discovered his passion for the guitar at age 13 and he has been cultivating his love for more than 16 years. Trained in classical and flamenco music, Emmanuel quickly incorporated elements of classic and alternative rock into his style.
His first taste of band life came at age 16 with the group Warhead (playing heavy metal covers), By 18, he formed the band Brothers Grimm. This time the vibe was much more alternative rock. Emmanuel soon discovered his love of song writing. As one group disbanded (Brothers Grimm called it quits in 1996), another quickly emerged. Big Eyed Grieve was Emmanuel’s last group effort, formed in late 1996. Playing a unique hybrid of progressive rock, funk and grunge, the band played on for six years. After Big Eyed Grieve disbanded in 2003, Emmanuel embarked on a solo career. In July of that year, he debuted his solo material (which is now featured on One Man) at a pub in Trinidad. The night was a success and a personal triumph for Emmanuel. In September 2003, he immigrated to Canada to further his musical pursuits.

After playing for nearly seventeen years, Emmanuel’s style has evolved to encompass classical melodies, jazz, funk, flamenco, folk, pop and most genres of rock. Emmanuel has also taught guitar and mentored to many aspiring young musicians. To date he has played at several venues including Clintons, The Silver Dollar, The Black Swan and Healey’s. In a new county, looking to pursue a lifelong dream, with Emmanuel, one thing is for certain; when he plays, everyone listens.
