Known professionally as Mannis, I write, produce, and record my own music similar to that of Lauv, Jake Miller, Christian French, and Blackbear. I'm always look for co-producers and/or writers, to help bring my creativity to life! Need to bring a new edge to your song? Hire me to record your hook/feature verse!
FEATURES: Like many of you, I am an artist as well. I'm always trying to write the next hit song with melodic hooks & catchy verses. I have been lucky enough to accumulate over 300,000 Spotify streams on my own music, which I write and produce myself. I record my vocals at Gravity Studio Chicago, which includes vocal production, tuning, and vocal mixing for all features and/or top lines.

Interview with Josh Mannis
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: I've hired numerous Soundbetter providers over the last year, which is how I came to start providing my own services here! I've learned the most efficient techniques, client relations, and more through working with experienced pros. The best of the best make sure their work is perfect, and that's my promise to you. Don't hesitate to let me know any thoughts/questions/concerns along the way, and feel free to throw as many revisions as you'd like my way. I'm here for YOU.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: My Apollo Twin, my first acoustic guitar, a Stratocaster, an SM7B, and a MIDI keyboard
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I first picked up a guitar on my fifth birthday, and have committed my life to music ever since! Growing up in music lessons, local choirs and rock bands, creating and performing have been at the core of my being for my entire life. Now I'm 22, living in Chicago, and creating music for a living. Between writing and producing my own songs and lending a hand to my peers, I'm constantly working (either at Gravity Studios Chicago or my home studio) to perfect my craft!
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: I write/sing/produce chill pop music. Think Blackbear, Anthony Russo, and Jeremy Zucker. Most of my songs feature some sort of guitar part with a rhythmic drum groove (usually on the hip-hop side of things), topped with forward-thinking melodies and hooks.
