Mannywellz talks “Alright” Rendition, Birth into Music, Optimism, & More!

I received an email stating that I should consider watching this performance of an artist that goes by the name Mannywellz. Immediately, I was struck by the way the name ‘Mannywellz’ rolled off my tongue. But what enticed me to watch the video was the fact he was performing a rendition to arguably Kendrick Lamar’s most inspirational song from To Pimp A Butterfly: “Alright.”

I was stunned to find how Kendrick’s powerful, up tempo, crowd-gathering song could be transformed into a soulful, mellow, and still, crowd-gathering song. At that point, I knew Mannywellz was someone I wanted to know; someone who I felt had the ability to inspire movements through his music. Just as his name indicates, Mannywellz has the power to dig deep — like a well — into his soul, where you’ll feel like you’re wearing the same shoes he is. With that being said, my interview with Mannywellz is one that tampers with all his emotions: the good, the funny, the sad, and the darkness. But like all wells, there’s something at the bottom that’s worth acquiring if you’re willing to work for it.
