Interview with Manu Priestley

Tell us about yourself, who are you and where do you come from?

Hello, my name is Manu PRIESTLEY, I am 37 years old and I am a singer. I come from Geneva in Switzerland. I pay tribute to Elvis Presley on stage!

How was your passion for music born? Who are your idols?

Since my childhood, I was always rocked by music thanks to my parents. At the age of 12, I discovered Elvis Presley and it is enough that I became a fan of the greatest artist of all time!

What kind of music do you do?


What is the most important song for you? What message do you want to convey to the listener?

The most important song for me is Burning Love! I’m not trying to convey any particular message. I want to make people discover the wonderful universe of the king of Rock’n’Roll and to pass on these songs to the new generations!

Why should a listener who doesn’t know you listen to your music?

Because I cover the most beautiful songs of Elvis by interpreting them in my way and with the music updated!

What are your future projects? Where do you see yourself 5 years from now?

I am preparing a show on the career of Elvis Presley! I have a project to move to the United States! So in 5 years I will surely be in Nashville!

Tell our readers a funny episode that happened in your career as an artist.

It was at a friend’s birthday party, I started to sing a very Rock’n’Roll song and I was sure that everyone would dance. But they all froze watching me sing and move! After the second song they relaxed and started to dance!
