The first song written by Marnix was : "Het Aller Grootste Hart". He was nine years and this song brought him right to the finals of the Junior Song Festival in The Netherlands. Since then Marnix Emanuel kept on writing songs, showing an extrodinary talent to match his music with words. Because Marnix did hardly watch any TV or listen to the radio when he was young, he was able to develop his own style. Free as a bird, a wide range of songs from Rock to Pop to Ballads with Jazz influences were created. Marnix writes his songs on guitar or piano and his mom, Maryse Moerel, writes the lyrics. As a mom she truly understands the depths of his being and the way Marnix Emanuel is thinking, feeling and acting. This symbiosis has been going on since Marnix was born.
