Eli & The Mannings

Eli & The Mannings (or EATM) is a freeform improvisational musical collective that is in no way affiliated, legally or otherwise, with its patron saint, the Honorable Elisha Nelson Manning. EATM is a gang of chill weirdos—some experienced musicians, some not—who convene a couple of times a year to blend experimentation with absurdity and arrive at a sound that is often strange, sometimes beautiful, and consistently unpredictable.

Listening to an Eli & The Mannings album requires a complete detachment from expectation and an open-minded surrender to the magic of live improvisation. Transitioning effortlessly across genres between (and sometimes during) songs, EATM explores elements of hip hop, rock, jazz, blues, soul, folk, pop, country, latin, spoken word, comedy, and other forms to create truly original, one-of-a-kind recordings.
