A "Manrelic" consists of a saint's physical remains or belongings preserved for purposes of veneration as a tangible memorial. In this way, a Manrelic honors its predecessors.

Manrelic is Jared Park, a singer, Songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, producer, model and actor.

This Manrelic differs in that Jared seeks to carve his own path. It draws influence from a variety of places, musical and non-musical. There are nods to the larger-than-life characters throughout this past half-century. The synth work fluctuates between dreamy and anxiety-inducing. The drums and percussion pump, bump, and grind with quirkiness. The guitars, at times, cascade around you and then jump out at you like a snarling savage. The bass provides the ground-shaking low-end to fill the music out.

Manrelic wants you to hear something familiar, responsive to its context, but new. Whatever the case, just FEEL something.
Rocky Block
Rocky Block
Rocky Block is an incredibly talented 18 yr. old pop/jazz singer/songwriter. Born and raised in Nashville, TN also known as Music City, USA, Rocky is quickly gaining a solid rep for his old soul songwriting style and abilities, his new school 9 piece Small Big Band and his recent energetic stage shows at Nashville's Mercy Lounge, 3rd & Lindsley & Ryman Auditorium. His new single and video for "What You Do" co-written with Tommy Sims ("Change The World," "Philadelphia") was written to his dad, Billy Block, a legendary Nashville music icon. Gilles Goddard of ole Music said, "'What You Do' is an extremely personal song with universal appeal." Industry pundit Bob Lefsetz of The Lefsetz Letter had one word for Rocky Block, "Interesting."

Raised by musical parents, mom Jill Rochlitz Block is a formidable artist/performer with 4 CD's to her credit and a burgeoning artist development company as a music business Dream Coach. Dad, Billy Block is a world renowned drummer who has recorded and toured with everyone from Pixies front-man Frank Black to Americana icon Billy Joe Shaver and is a legendary Nashville icon producing concerts, TV and radio for 2 decades. Rocky grew up in a home surrounded by some of the most incredible writers, artists & musicians from Nashville, Austin and Los Angeles. With bass guitar as his "main axe" he is also well versed on the guitar and piano. At 15 he played all the instruments except drums (13 yr old brother Grady Block was on the session) and co-produced his first EP with respected producer and keyboardist from legendary country rock band Poco, Micheal Webb.

Rocky recently spent a week in LA visiting with the creative staff at ole Music, the world's leading independent music publisher, to begin "the dating" phase of their professional relationship. He just finished writing with Songwriting Hall of Famer Jeffery Steele who told him, "I've never written ANYTHING like that before in my life. I think we wrote a standard."
