Tour Information
Hola! I’m so excited to be releasing my first single! Come and celebrate it with me and my amazing band!

August 13th at Cassette 9, Vulcan lane. R18
With support from Chris Bates and Mackensie Grace
Tickets - $15

With her debut single ‘Te Vas’ set for release late July, Manuela alongside her co-writter Luan have composed a dramatic and catchy reggae ton tune you’ll love. ‘Te Vas’ was co-written and produced by the talented Luan (Chris Bates, Julia Walker). The track was mixed by Scott Seabright (Six60, Broods, Mumford and Sons) and mixed by Primal Mastering.

Praised for her powerhouse vocals, Colombian-Kiwi singer-songwriter Manuela blends Spanish and English in her music to showcase elements from both sides of her cultural identity. Her music fuses the sounds of reggaeton, hip hop and RnB with the passion and drama of Latin American artists Mon Laferte and Shakira. Bringing a truely honest and heart-felt performance that leaves audiences wanting more.

“What a great voice she can belt out. Meaning that with great respect because at times I thought I was listening to the Latin Janis Joplin. Colombian, truth told.” - Rev Orange Peel (13th Floor)

“Manuela is full of passion and heart, taking us with her on the journey’ - Kev Rowland (MusicNet)

Mackensie Grace is experienced in writing heartfelt ballads, with stories about anything from classic heartbreak to larger issues such as global warming and internet privacy, she is an expert in writing emotional lyrics and soaring vocal melodies. However, over the past couple of years, Mackensie has broadened her horizons. Her more recent material includes a modern jazz-pop fusion sound, paired with her sexy lyrics, it just makes you want to move your hips.

Described as New Zealand’s “pop prince” by his peers, Chris Bates is a 21 year old singer known for his silky smooth vocals and intricate pop melodies.
Bates’ ability to hold the crowd with his funky yet relatable tunes is much loved. The summery smash 'Love You Better' hit upwards of 13k streams on Spotify, and he recently released his singles 'Chasing Kites' and 'Minute'.
