"Everything You Say" - Solo EP
Full length album in progress.



Eli Maniscalco writes songs about people he’s never known, places he’s never seen, and things he’s never done.

With a storyteller’s eye for detail, a folksinger’s passion and enthusiasm, and an often quirky sense of humor, he invites comparisons to Paul Simon, Randy Newman, Woody Guthrie and others. While his lyric writing is rooted in the folk tradition, his influences range from folk to jazz to musical theater, with classic rock and other styles thrown in as well.

In 2007 Maniscalco released his debut EP entitled “Everything You Say”, and since 2003 he has been half of the comic folk duo Russ & Eli. He is also a versatile multi-instrumentalist and composer, working as a sideman for various artists in the New York area.
