Saint John, New Brunswick based singer-songwriter Manoli Xios has flirted with mainstream success since he began performing over twenty years ago.
A veteran of the maritime rock music circuit, Manoli has taken his blend of blues based soul to stages all over New Brunswick and Nova Scotia.He has been featured on Canadian music television channel Muchmusic, and performed at several East Music Week events. His stint with progressive-metal icons Chasing Dragons saw him perform internationally, and earned such attention from Twisted Sister's Mark Mendoza and NHL Alumni Ron Duguay.
After a brief stint on the West Coast performing in a folk-rock duo, Manoli has returned to his home city and is ready to make his mark. He has been dilligently working on a new album with producer Paul Milner (Queensrhyche, Keith Richards, Eddy Grant) at the helm, and the material promises to be his most sincere effort yet.
