Harry Manx has been called an "essential link" between the music of East and West, creating musical short stories that wed the tradition of the Blues with the depth of classical Indian ragas. He has created a unique sound that is hard to forget and deliciously addictive to listen to.

Playing the Mohan Veena, lap steel, harmonica and banjo, Manx quickly envelops the audience into what has been dubbed "the Harry Zone" with his warm vocals and the hauntingly beautiful melodies of his original songs. "The live performances have become the most exciting part of the music business for me," Harry says. "And it's not only the playing; it's all the other magic that happens between myself and the audience. My goal has always been to draw the audience as deep as possible into the music."

A successful touring performer, Manx has brought his "breathtaking" solo shows across his native Canada, into the USA, Australia, France and most recently to Singapore and Spain. He has appeared at many prestigious festivals, world- class theatres, concert halls and infamous Blues clubs around the globe.

Blending Indian folk melodies with blues, a sprinkle of gospel, and compelling grooves, Manx's "mysticssippi" flavour is hard to resist, easy to digest and keeps audiences coming back for more.

"While most musicians are content to work within the accepted boundaries of their chosen style, lap-slide guitarist Harry Manx likes to color way outside the lines. His crayons? Soulful, raspy vocals, poetic lyrics, and the whining drones and mysterious melisma of Indian music. In addition to picking Hawaiian-style flat-top, Manx plays the mohan veena - a 20-string archtop… Drawing from blues, ragas, and the story-telling heritage of British Isles folk music, Manx conjures songs that are as bewitching as they are unique." - Guitar Player

"Harry Manx is the master of your chilled-out oriental vibe, thanks to his proficiency on instruments like the mohan veena; and that smoky voice of his is akin to getting a relaxing massage without skin contact." - JazzReview.com

"Manx's warm yet gravelly voice never gets tiring." "Manx has been quick to establish himself as a unique roots and blues musician with considerable range." - Exclaim! Magazine

"... vocalist and guitar player extraordinaire Harry Manx… brought the new meaning of eclectic, earthy, blues sound to the Piermont bastion of musical greats ... but even more impressive to the listener is his guitar playing ... His fingers, like magic, were strumming and beating, creating tones which you would expect from a three or four piece band." - Rockland County Times
