About Manora

Vocals

Being quite new to Manora most lyrics and lines were already laid out for her, but her angelic, yet powerful voice and flawless pitch raised the songs to the next level. It is when she can put her own creativity to work that her artistic talent presents itself. This is evident, amongst other things, in the lyrics and lines of “Dreamshapes” which is undoubtedly a worthy track for the album title.

Guitars and orchestrals

As the founder of Manora, it has been a long search to find the right people who could contribute to this album and make it greater than the sum of its parts. Hard work and perseverance have allowed this album to be completed and with his creative mind, which is always over flooding with ideas, it should not take long before new songs are ready to be recorded.

Keyboards and orchestrals

Joined in the early days when the band’s lineup was all but steady, always looking for the right people for the proverbial “job”. This meant slow progress but allowed the refinement of Manora’s shared vision and fine-tuning of songs on which Arthur’s captivating melodies and proficiency in digital orchestral instruments convey the symphonic character of Manora’s sound.

Drums

When Manora was at its all-time low and on the verge of premature retirement Tijn enrolled as the drummer which granted Manora a well-needed second wind. Unlike many drummers, he does not shy away from the fast-paced songs and gives his all when it comes to stomping that double bass.

Bass

As the latest asset of Manora he quickly made the existing bass lines his own allowing the band to go full steam ahead and work towards completion of this album. You will soon be able to witness this energetic powerhouse in his natural habitat – the stage – where he can go all out. “Wielkie dzięki dla mojej rodziny i przyjaciół za wsparcie!”
