From his hard-rock roots to his latest productions, Phil (born in Paris-France) has always combined his talent as a guitarist and a songwriter. He was evolved with many bands and musical projects but the most significant to date stays ERA's first album (7 million copies sold over the world)- and several successful film soundtracks with the composer Eric Lévi. 

He presents in 2003 at the Olympia in Paris a very refreshing rock musical version of the children's tale Jack et le Haricot Magique (French translation of the English fairy tale Jack and the Beanstalk) which went on tour for more than 10 years. Recently he paid a tribute to Irish guitarist Gary Moore for nearly 2 years until he decided to record his own blues-rock material. “Phil Manca's outbursts on his Lespaul are thrilling because he fluidly mixes up his past as a guitar hero, the influences of his lifelong idols and his own ingredients that remind us that the guitar still has the power to move people.” C. Crénel Crew: Phil Manca/Guitar-Back Vcls, David Jacob/Bass, Eric Lafont/Drms, JJ/Vocals (guitar and kbds on stage)

Phil said about the song: After the release of his 1st album “Signs” including his epic version of “Down Payment Blues” (AC/DC), Phil Manca (ERA) is back with a brand-new explosive album “Dancing Spirits” mixing heavy blues-rock flirting with heavy metal.

What I like about the Dancing spirit is the general Rock n' roll attitude, the sound, the classic hard rock riffing and soloing (reminding me of Led Zeppelin, more than others) as well as the vocal melody, very catchy but without losing power and attitude. Superb solo at the end of the song too! You can't be disappointed if you like Hard Rock.
