Mike Manny has been immersed in music all his life. He first began learning piano at the age of 5, eventually going on to study at Humber College and the prestigious Manhattan School of Music. Manny joined his first band in the Canadian Forces in 2002, and has since performed worldwide as a musician in the Forces. Inspired mainly by jazz pianists from the classic Blue Note era, he also lists contemporary pianists Benny Green and Geoffrey Keezer among his favorites.
