Manh Quynh quickly revealed his musical talent. As a child, he studied music theory in church. The first basic knowledge I learned from the church choir, when other people were just singing along with the sisters, I was the only child curiously watching the music with high and low notes.

After that, he also practiced on his own, instinctively understood everything from composition to playing musical instruments, without any training.

However, because he was too passionate about music, he dropped out of school, researched and recorded himself, made his first music and put it online.

In 2009, Phan Manh Quynh joined artistic activities as a musician. He is the author of many hit songs such as: Ex-girlfriend (Koi My), Where I found you (Ho Quang Hieu), I used to love them (Miu Le), Stepping through the world (Unh Hoang Phuc) … . But he is little known to the general public.

Personal impressions

Switching to style and music for a “luxury” audience is something that Phan Manh Quynh himself has heard a lot and he has no intention of changing as Quynh herself finds that she wants the compositions are always the most familiar thing people can encounter anywhere, even in the very corner of the soul.

Beautiful Saigon is a great place to find ideas, but her feelings are in her hometown, in a small poor village. There are also stories, fragile lives, beautiful but broken loves…

His wife spread to the entire 2016 Tao Quan program but could not avoid controversy. Many opinions consider the song’s lyrics to be overly popular, even corny and “cheap”.

When the product is criticized as “cheap”, the musician born in 1990 reacts to popular criticism which does not mean market music. According to him, the song simply chooses to address the issue in a specific way instead of following the familiar implementation in other songs.

In fact, Phan Manh Quynh’s music often gives rise to such contradictory comments. The songs he composed and performed may be close, natural, and popular to that person, but have become “market” music for the more discerning music listening public.

Thus, the musician-singer decided to contest the best song so that the public sees another Phan Manh Quynh, has other confidants and stories, richer musical colors and is closer to the general public.

For more than a year, Phan Manh Quynh limited himself to appearing on the musical stages. The artist said singing helped him “make money” but ruined his creativity. He spends time in his hometown, focusing on research and writing music.

Although he rarely performed, he was satisfied when his brains were selected by his colleagues, resonating in many shows big and small.

After being a musical “disaster”, he also chose to stay hidden when the market fluctuated constantly, but at that time the male singer changed the public’s opinion. Many seniors and seniors also look at him from a different point of view. In Vpop, few people are loved by the public like him but still choose to follow their own music and direction.
