After three rock solo albums produced between 2000 and 2006, Manu Lanvin finally found his most natural way with the « Devil Blues », a power trio that perfectly suits him.
In 2013 Manu and The Devil Blues played L’Olympia, The Apollo Theater, Montreux Jazz Festival and over 120 shows in some of the most prestigious venues across Europe and the United States. He received a personal invitation from Claude Nobs and Quincy Jones to perform in New York for the Jazz Foundation of America and was selected to represent France at the 2014 International Blues Challenge in Memphis. In July 2015 Manu was presented with the Cognac Passion Prize, which recognized his achievements in the world of blues, soul and funk.
“Blues, Booze and Rock ‘n’ Roll” was released in 2016 and was undoubtedly Manu’s most mature album. It earned him praise and recognition from a wide range of media. It was selected as “Best Album of the Year” by Le Parisien, one of the Best Performances of the year by Rock & Folk Magazine, and a nomination for “Best Male Performer” by France’s Cristal Globes 2017.
In 2019, Manu Lanvin & The Devil Blues released Grand Casino album, out on February 15th.
