Guernica Mancini is one of the best Swedish rock singer/songwriters in the world.
Music has always been a big part of his life, from growing up in a church choir to forming his first band at age 14.
In 2007, Guernica enrolled at the prestigious Musicians Institute in Los Angeles, California, where she won a songwriting competition. This led her to record with the famous music producer Daryl Swannwho has worked with artists such as BLACK-EYED PEAS, John Frusciante and Macy GrayJust to name a few.
While at the Institute of Musicians, she formed the all-female band WITHOUT GLORYperforming at concert venues in LA as well as Las Vegas including House of Blues, Hard Rock Café, The Key Club and The Roxy.
2010 saw Mancini team up with Jeff Young (former member of MEGADETHlisten)) as the lead vocalist of his band SOULS OF 11.
After 5 years in Los Angeles, Guernica returned to Sweden and formed her own band. THE ROYAL RUCKUS. The next 4 years the band played all over Sweden and toured all over Europe.
2017 gave Guernica the opportunity to audition for the Swedish girl rock band THUNDERof which she has since become the lead singer.
Mancini was the lead singer for the last three THUNDER albums and has been a songwriter in the later ones. They have toured all over the world, playing massive festivals such as Wacken, Sweden Rock Festival, Alcatraz, Exit Festival and Reload Festival. They have also been featured on The Kiss Cruise, Full Metal Cruise and supported THE DEAD DAISIES, THE BABIES OF THE COURT and PINK TATTOO.
THUNDER is by far one of the hardest working and most touring bands in the world and Guernica is the voice of this thunder machine! In 2020, she joined Hank Von Hell on his single “Crown” from his album dead. In 2021, the group KING ZEBRAalso signed to Golden Robot Records metal label Crusader Records, asked Guernica to join them on their song “Wall of Confusion”.
“Doing something creative that is completely mine is something I have aspired to do since I was very young. It’s scary but at the same time so exciting and fun! I feel very lucky to have had this opportunity. More than anything, I feel so happy that my fellow Thundermothers are really supportive and excited for me. So now let Guernica’s single player legacy begin. – Guernica Mancini
