"Hippie Pop Funkateer"

“I have about 500 styles,” laughs Kim Manning. While her sound is actually a heady combination of jazz, funk, rock and reggae she once called “junk-jog”—or as one friend deemed it, hippiepop— Manning’s talents are also multifaceted. Starting with violin at age six, Manning soon began honing her 4.5-octave vocal range which she’s now paired with her skills on Rhodes and guitar.

Though she got a degree in musical theater and is a strong enough actress to land parts on television shows like N.Y.P.D. Blue and Boston Public, Manning’s big break came when George Clinton tapped her as a featured singer for Parliament-Funkadelic. It was on tour that she began recording her debut, The Love & Light Activation, which has appearances by Clinton, The Duo and features Eric McFadden, Wally Ingram and Norwood Fischer. “You get in where you fit in,” she says of her six-year tenure with P-Funk. Whether it’s that, her collaborations with Particle, Jacob Fred Jazz Odyssey or Snoop Dog, Manning’s foot seems to always be the one that fits the glass slipper. Josh Baron

"The Buzz"

She’s a classically trained musician and singer blessed with an explosive voice that spans a nearly five-octave range. Naturally, that makes Kim Manning a perfect fit for the P-Funk Allstars, with whom she’s been touring since 2000.
“I had just graduated from the University of Tulsa”, Kim says, “ and was working for an opera company that summer. I met a girl who knew George Clinton, and she invited me a to a P-Funk Show in San Francisco. I was blown away!”
A few weeks later, still enthralled, she joined their tour for a few days. Word got out that the Girl could sing. Following an audition for the P-Funk legend himself, George Clinton, during which she played a CD of her senior-year recital, Kim was promptly added to the P-Funk family.
When not touring, Kim has established herself as a solid actress with credits on The Bernie Mac Show, Boston Public, and NYPD Blue. This year she is releasing her first solo, The Love and Light Activation, but P-Funk is her foundation.
