Songs escape late-20s troubadour Clint Manning like vapor from a kettle. And that whistle is damn sweet. Hailing from Buffalo, New York, now based out of Austin, Texas, the multi-instrumentalist’s winding musical career has encompassed piano, drums, guitar and vocals — and a degree in music production. His songs speak on the universal themes of love, loss and existential ache in ways that are relatable and replayable.
Clint Manning releases timeless music that would be welcomed in any era, from the 50s right on through today, with modern flourishes that keep things fresh. From the trials to the good times, from previous work with Speak Easy Three and All Over Everything, to his upcoming solo album, Clint offers depth and style that's rust-belt tough but Austin cool.
A live performance veteran of over 1,000 shows across the country, and an accomplished producer with over 20 artists under his belt, Manning's self-styled, self-written, self-guided path continues to unwind in fascinating ways. His latest album, "Awake and Restless," follows in his tradition of excellent song craft, capturing the choices we make, the way we struggle with them, and the way we triumph over them.
