**A new kind of open mic session, each week Michelle Morrow hosts and has a Singer/songwriter/musician in the spotlight! These artists are some of the most fascinating people, and during a brief interview just before they perform, she probes their past revealing just a little bit more than they have within a song. Meet Billy Manzik. Billy Manzik's journey began where Highway 61 ends - in Thunder Bay, Ontario, Canada. The soundtrack for his childhood was provided by his guitar-slinging and singing mother, and her love of all things sound. His 2007 debut recording, 'Billy Manzik', received extensive radio play across Canada and abroad, charting well on college radio, as well being featured on CBC Radio's "Key Of A". His performance at the 2008 Alberta Songwriter Sessions was recorded and broadcast nationally on CBC Radio. He and his band were invited to kick off the 2008 Juno Awards with a spirited performance at their awards reception. He has since released 2 more albums: 2009's 'AllTogetherNow' and 'Black/White', released in 2015. Folk Rock, Roots, Funky Country Blues.
