Fil Manley's Profile

About me:I come from a family of musicians. My mother is a gospel singer and vocal coach, my father has been playing music in Atlanta for 60 years. His father, Verne Manley played trombone with Tommy Dorsey and was president of NAMM.
Now, I'm trying to develop my skills as writer and photojournalist. I started a non-profit search engine which you can see at where I co-publish all of my artist and musician interviews. It's my desire to interview musicians and encourage them to talk about their ideas related to social justice and spirituality. I love music and being around musicians.
