Biography

Manu LJ, an impulsive and versatile artist, likes to define herself as a stage-addicted. The stage represents the natural start and end of each of her works. When she was still very young, she founded a band composed of thirteen elements, performing in many cities in Northern Italy and playing jazz, soul, funky and rock music. She struck a chord with her audiences almost immediately thanks to a direct and involving manner during her many live shows.
�The stage is the only place where I can take off the mask I wear everyday�.

In 2004 she started cooperating with the producer Alex Bagnoli. The result was their first single �Feel Alright� (New Music Int. � 2005), a fresh, optimistic and sunny song included in major dance compilations all over the world, from the U.S.A. to Japan. The year after, the single �Until the Morning� (New Music Int. � 2006) confirmed the great skill of this young singer and the gradual passage to pop music. With �Heaven� (Melodica � 2007), Manu LJ obtained the title of pop-dance singer.
�Pop-dance music belongs to me because it communicates happiness and carelessness, just what I�m trying to do in my life�.

In 2008 she got a degree in foreign languages and, during the same year, she met the Grande Cinema Italiano by Fratelli Vanzina, singing a new and fresh version of the great hit �Un�estate al mare� by Giuni Russo, as the titletrack of the box office hit movie of the same name.
�The only way to get a degree was to write a thesis on music and so I did. I studied the history of English recording industry of the 1960�s in order to understand why it was so unique. And on the day of my graduation I received the news about the film. Such a great present.�

In 2010 she found herself involved in different projects as a composer for the Chinese music market, producer of eurodance music, author of books on the relationship between music and foreign language learning and promoter of a new musical project for children. This was the background of her song �Dance All Night� (Off Limits Production � 2011), �an invitation to live your life, dance, get tired, and not give up in life. Dance music can give good suggestions sometimes!�

The year after, Off Limits released Manu LJ's single "Italia (What a love)".

"That's amore" is her new song, taken from "Fight you way" EP.
