Carrie Manolakos



Guest Actor for Chess (ImaGEN, 2015)

Carrie Manolakos' Broadway credits include the lead role of Sophie in Mamma Mia as well as Elphaba on the Second National Tour of Wicked. Carrie is currently in the studio working on her next album to be released in fall of 2015. Her debut album, Echo, is a lyrical blend of folk, pop and soul. Her sound dances with the stars of Adele and Joni Mitchell, with a kiss blown to Jeff Buckley, but a voice that is unmistakably hers alone. She was selected for Elle Magazine’s 30 Under 30: Essential Names to Know, voted #1 by readers. She has also been featured in the New York Times, The New Yorker and Huffington Post.
