HARRY MANX (CANADA) 

 

Canada’s most versatile and expressive blues player.” Billboard Magazine

 

Harry Manx has spent decades fusing eastern musical traditions with the blues, switching fluidly between conventional acoustic and electric guitars, banjo and the Mohan Veena, created by Harry’s Indian mentor Vishwa Mohan Bhatt.  His original music blends East and West ‘creating musical short stories that wed the Blues with the depth of classical Indian ragas’. 

 

A worldwide festival favorite, Harry’s 13 albums and ceaseless touring have seen him earn a slew of Maple Leaf, Juno and Canadian Folk Awards, nominations, and accolades from musicians and fans alike.  

 

“Watching Harry play tonight I feel like I learned something new…….” Bruce Springsteen, @ the International Guitar Festival, New York City

 

On a wintry Chicago morning in February 2013, Harry’s  20-stringed Mohan Veena, was stolen from an airport carousel.  Announced on his Facebook page, by the next day over 3 million people had spread the word, searching, building him a new one, and (a praying for its return.  The story from the Chicago Tribune was picked up by AP news service and soon the whole world was learning about this exotic instrument, and the completely unique music of Harry Manx.   Police found the culprit and the instrument 2 days later, and Harry was reunited with his signature instrument.

 

February 2014, saw the release of Harry’s 12th studio recording – ‘Ohm Suite Ohm’, distributed by Vitamin Records.  This album reveals Harry’s new ‘Bollywood electric slide guitar’ work, and steers Harry in a somewhat new direction.  Featuring instrumental compositions, original songs, an exceptional cover of John Coltrane’s ‘A Love Supreme’, guest vocalists and international collaborators, it’s all in the service of a completely unique cross genre that’s hard to pigeonhole, but easy to love.

 

And now the prolific Harry Manx has just released his newest album - the highly acclaimed “20 strings and the truth”.  A mostly intrumental album that is a homage to his beloved Mohan Veena.

Fresh off the plane from five weeks touring North America on the back of his new solo album 'After What I Did Last Night...', Henry’s fingers are nimble, his voice is limber and his memory bank is full of many new stories of big skies and the open road. Hauntings, sleepwalking, crippling early mornings and hazy late nights. Following his barnstorming launch tour of the Australian capitals earlier in the year, Henry will finish off 2016 by venturing further afield with a series of full band festival appearances and solo shows in Australia and NZ this September, October and November. These shows will provide a rare insight into a perfectly road hardened, world widened Australian songwriter at his utmost prime. Joining Henry for the Australian jaunt will be the Golden Guitar wielding, all round charmer and talented songsmith in his own right, Lachlan Bryan.

"Like his fellow Melbourne, Australia native Nick Cave, Henry Wagons understands how to evoke the dark heart of Americana better than most U.S.-born country musicians these days it seems. So when it came time for him to break away from his longtime band Wagons and venture into solo territory, the decision to record his excellent new full-length, After What I Did Last Night…in Nashville was indeed a natural one.” PASTE Magazine

KINKY FRIEDMAN
Legendary outlaw country singer/songwriter returns to Australia in support of ‘The Loneliest Man I Ever Met'

Nobody could invent a character quite like Kinky Friedman, the stogie-waving, black-hat-wearing Texas Jewboy singer, storyteller, tequila purveyor, animal rescuer and full-time iconoclast. Though renowned for penning some of outlaw country’s most outrageous songs, authoring bestsellers and running for governor of Texas, his 45-year career includes touring with Dylan’s Rolling Thunder Revue; recording with Clapton, most of The Band and Ringo Starr; appearing on Saturday Night Live and at the Grand Ole Opry; and writing one of Nelson Mandela’s favourite songs. He also became the protagonist of his own crime novels, because even he couldn’t invent a character that could out-kinkKinky Friedman.



A favourite of Australian audiences Kinky revisits our shores with a brand new album - his first in 39 years!! - 'The Loneliest Man I Ever Met', that may well be one of the longest-awaited follow-ups in recent memory. Not that fans have complained; the continued popularity of tunes such as “Sold American,” “Nashville Casualty and Life” and “Ride ’Em Jewboy” (the Holocaust-referencing song that soothed Mandela in prison) prove Kinky is that rare talent whose work withstands the test of time. Friedman still delivers those songs — interspersed with his inimitable blend of politically incorrect quips, jokes and tales both tall and true — to appreciative audiences around the world.

Filled with never-heard-before Kinky originals and beautifully rendered covers of such artists as Tom Waits, Warren Zevon and Willie Nelson, the new CD is all about Kinky’s ultimate ability to deliver much more than just a funny line or humorous tune. The spare, yet lush arrangements all point up Kinky’s unique talent as both a songwriter and interpreter of great material. Guest performers Nelson, Little Jewford and Mickey Raphael support but never override the simplicity and grace of the tunes and the artist.

‘The Loneliest Man I Ever Met’ is available now through Thirty Tigers/Cooking Vinyl Australia

"Friedman’s dark humour frequently raises its head but the overwhelming emotion from the sparse and graceful musical treatments is one of melancholy and sadness - all framed by the passage of time. An overdue album but one that’s exceeded expectations.” 8/10 Post To Wire
