Born in London, Emanuel Stanley grew up in a music-loving family in southern germany. Until he finally found his instrument at the age of 20, he tried trumpet, piano and guitar. Besides his love for music, there was also a great passion for sports. At the age of 18 a knee injury stopped him on the the way of becoming a basketball pro. This opened room again for his first love.
He studied sports and music in Cologne and started his career at the age of 26. He is mainly busy in the field of jazz, soul, funk and ethnic music.
