For many people, Guy Manning flies under the radar. That’s despite a 30-plus-year career that’s included more than a dozen albums under his own name, Manning, a stint in The Tangent, work with The United Progressive Fraternity, and too many guest spots to count.
His current band is Damanek, an intercontinental collaborative effort with Southern Empire’s keyboardist Sean Timms. Their first record, which came out in 2017, was On Track, which displayed numerous musical styles and influences. The band didn’t just sit back on its laurels; it released In Flight last October 5 and is preparing for a tour of England and parts of Europe in November.
Manning recently spoke with Sonic Perspectives’ collaborator Mark Boardman. And the music was secondary. Just three days earlier, Sean Timms had suffered a heart attack, which put the tour up in the air.
