Eddy Mann is a smile for the soul. He’s a combination of cultural and spiritual traditions living in an ever evolving neighborhood. He’s ever comfortable in his hometown Philly roots that speak of peace, and brotherly love. An award winning and prolific singer-songwriter, he's moved gracefully through a catalog of twenty diverse albums.
Being brought up in a faithful home that featured his father, a be-bop pianist, and his mother a culture sharing creative, his influences are far and wide both musically, philosophically, and spiritually. It was that broad pallet from which to draw on that has inspired his differing shades of music from album to album.
The title track lyric from 2020's 'Pray On' reveals an optimistic element that runs throughout the body of his work.
Peace lies in the heart of the believer
Calm lies in the hands of compassion
Love lies in the words of the one who’ll pray on, so pray on

In Eddy’s words, "I’m driven to write, to record, and to perform by the opportunity to bring a smile, a light, or just a moment of peace to someone in need. That’s why I get up each day, that’s my part to play in this story, and that’s why I’ll continue to write about my experiences getting through each day."
