Born and raised in Cape Town, South Africa, Byron Manchest's impressive melodies and harmonies were founded at the Drakensberg Boys' Choir School, where he trained under the top classical vocalists in the country. While attending school four hours away from his family, he found himself filling his free time by listening to who now are some of his favorite artists, such as Marvin Gaye. During this time, he resolved to learn how to accompany his original songs, as his idol Stevie Wonder had done. Moving forward, Manchest wrote lyrics and melodies that reminded him of family and the hardships of his hometown.
At 17, he flew to Boston for one of the biggest auditions of his life, at Berklee . Manchest is now working with some of the top professors, producers, and talent managers to become the artist he has always dreamed of being, and is looking forward to sharing his music with anyone willing to listen. He looks forward to the future and his upcoming career.
