Spotify Canvases added for all tracks

I've created Canvases for all my tracks on Spotify! "What the hell is a Spotify Canvas, Manny?" I hear you cry! Here's Spotify's description:
Canvas is an exciting feature from Spotify that brings your release artwork to life. When your listeners visit the Spotify 'now playing' page on their mobile device the usual release artwork is replaced by a full screen image or looping video. Spotify describe the feature as 'album artwork for the streaming age'
I've opted for looping video rather than full screen image. I cheated by using some free stock video's from https://www.pexels.com/ and editing them to suit but it was a lot of fun and I'm pleased with how they turned out (I think 'Barman From Manchester' and 'Stroll On' are my two favourites).
Remember canvases are only available on mobile devices. Hope you enjoy!

Happy New Year! Second album coming latert in 2021

Happy New Year! I'm starting 2021 feeling motivated and my big goal for the year is to release the second album which I'll probably call 'Writing a New Score'. 


I'm also going with a small rebrand and changing my name from Manny to Sideshow Manny (It's a more unique name for finding online and of the many Manny's in the music industry I'm probably the only one who's not a rapper!) 

 Ahead of finalising and releasing the second album, my first task is to get my online presence sorted out. I have now published Sideshow on all the major streaming services but rather than overwhelm you with all the links at once I'll drip feed them over the coming weeks, so watch this space!
