Victor Manso is an Actor/Singer-Songwriter originally from Caracas, Venezuela. He was first on a stage at 4 years old, where he performed a song for his mother’s Venezuelan folk band. So, one could say he was born into it.
Victor went on to sing and perform as a percussionist for the folk group and many other bands while in Venezuela. He tested various styles of music during these years, including rock, punk, and latin fusion. It wasn’t until finding Irish singer Damien Rice that Victor felt he had discovered the musical style he wanted to create himself. As he began composing his first collection of original music, the latin inspiration of his upbringing transformed into the acoustic sound he uses to define himself today.
In his teen years, Victor discovered theater and there was no turning back. He went on to study and pursue acting, and has had a successful career in the industry for over 20 years. Throughout his journey in entertainment, his musical background allowed him to combine the two artforms, making him a versatile and sought after performer. However, it wasn’t until the COVID-19 pandemic hit that Victor relearned, through isolation and virtual opportunities, how deep his love for singing truly was and how much he’d missed it.
“I’ve never been this disciplined and devoted to my sound, and I know that my music is what has kept me sane during these trying times.”
Now, Victor’s musical journey is one of reinvention and self discovery. Still, at its core the intention remains the same. He aims to share stories with an audience and unite them with the message that all of our stories are both unique and universal.
