GREG MANNING

Keyboards

Jazz, funk, and soul keyboardist and producer Greg Manning grew up in Zurich, Switzerland, and was mostly exposed to Jazz by his parents. Yet, he discovered his deep love for music only after hearing “Isn’t She Lovely” by Stevie Wonder. Greg started playing the piano at age 12. Several years later, he moved to Boston to study piano and film scoring at Berklee College of Music. During this time, he was asked to compose the music for “Keep Cool”, the most successful and longest running German language musical. The musical led him back to Switzerland, where he continued to compose and produce for records and TV. After spending several years in Zurich, Greg moved to the U.S. permanently. Soonafter, he made his U.S. debut as the keyboardist for the 2000 “Back At One Tour” with Brian McKnight. He also toured for nearly a decade as the keyboardist/music director for Jonathan Butler. Furthermore, he performed with Gerald Albright, Dave Koz, Richard Elliot, Eric Marienthal, and Kirk Whalum, among others, but over the last years, Greg has focused more on composing and writing.
