Biography

Manta & Deville know that passion and music always go hand in hand. The roots of this production team were created in the critically acclaimed Brisbane groups Zephyr Timbre and My Ninja Lover. With an emphasis on urban and electronic sounds, DeVille and Manta saw their first projects together soar to heights previously unknown to them, including tours with Jamiroquai and Moby, major festival performances such as Big Day Out and Parklife and high rotation radio play. That was the beginning and this is now…

Currently enjoying new adventures in songwriting, these talented musicians have been sampling many different slices of their creativity, from short film soundtracks to soundscape journeys with live vocals and instrumentation. Manta Ray teams her jazz-trained vocal abilities with her keyboard and guitar skills to create new ideas that are an amalgamation of her varied influences. Porl DeVille is an AMEB diploma awarded multi-instrumentalist, who has been dabbling in the art of music since the age of six. He is just as comfortable editing beats on a sequencer as he is playing the violin. Together, they are a perfect creative fit, combining their passion and skills to great effect. In their shared outlook, the world is oyster shaped and music equals joy…

Lyrics

Make Believe

Written By: Manta Ray

She has a garden made on many dreams and places that are built on make believe.
And if she was a paper girl, living in a paper world everything is coloured in and cut out around her.

I've seen the magic and the wonder of a dream believer, there she goes...
You'll find the pieces and then follow over to discover, what she knows...

She celebrates the love she makes in her own way
She opens up her heart to let the light shine in
Good morning sunshine have you met King Neptune and his daughters?
Hello seaside cover me and bless me in your water

She thanks this life and magic that it brings, takes comfort and finds joy in all the little things
And if she had a house of cards, there wouldn't be much of a backyard
So I'd make a window to see as far the eye could go

I've seen the magic and the wonder of a dream believer, there she goes...
You'll find the pieces and then follow over to discover, what she knows...

She celebrates the love she makes in her own way
She opens up her heart to let the light shine in
Good morning sunshine have you met King Neptune and his daughters?
Hello seaside cover me and bless me in your water

Oh oh oh - Oh oh oh :)
