Feeling a bit camera shy


There's no direct way to describe D'Manuel. He's a person who loves and makes music a significant element in his life. Born Donnell Smith in the heart of Baltimore, he is constantly striving to make his place in the music industry. Feeling no restrictions or limitations in the world of sound, he is able to portray his feelings of life and love through song from a slow ballad to an upbeat tempo. While he may be new to the scene, his experiences, thoughts and emotions have been pouring out on page after page since the age of 12. With musical influences ranging from the classic Temptations, Al Green and Donnie Hathaway, to the modern day Alicia Keys, Musiq and Lauryn Hill, D'Manuel is determined to bring music back to what it should be.

"I just want to take music back to how it used to be, you know. When you could put on a song and all it took was three seconds to get you off your feet and in the clouds."
