In November 2015, Manifesto re-released the entire catalogue of Lee Michaels that had been on A & M Records.

Manifesto is headed by Evan Cohen, a music-business and copyright lawyer and nephew of Herb Cohen, the late former manager of Frank Zappa, Tim Buckley, Linda Ronstadt, Tom Waits, and others.

In August 2015, the label announced that it was signing several new artists, including Drinking Flowers, Cellars, and Band Aparte. [1]
