Clayton Mann is an entertainer - singer/songwriter and touring artist from Nashville, TN releasing his debut EP "Make A Name" in March 2020.
Catching the attention of talent buyers, Clayton is performing between main acts Dierks Bentley, Brothers Osborne and The Oak Ridge Boys at Country Fest Cadott, WI on June 25, 2020! Immediately following, Clayton will open Heartland Stampede for Luke Combs, Toby Keith, Clay Walker and more on June 26th in Topeka, KS. He has also performed at iconic venues such as the Whisky-a-Go-Go on Sunset Strip, the MGM Grand Las Vegas, the Hard Rock Chicago to Music Row Nashville. When not on tour with his band at national honky tonks and festivals, Clayton is a Monday regular from 2-6 PM on the main stage at Tootsies Famous Orchid Lounge, Kid Rock's Honky Tonk or Rippy's Bar down on Broadway, Nashville.
A native of Chicago, Clayton is a professionally trained vocalist and
guitarist. Galvanized by rock infused with country music, Clayton is influenced by Waylon Jennings, Johnny Cash and Elvis Presley, overlaid by rock icons AC/DC, KISS and Guns-N-Roses. Overwhelming talented yet grossly under-aged, the gregarious young Clayton began cutting his musical teeth in the dive bars of Chicago at the tender age of 11 with his rock band of brothers, REBELMANN. He is a prior winner of Most Talented Teen Chicago and a current member of The Recording Academy.
Possessing a powerful, tenor voice that's sweet on the high notes, yet
with enough baritone on the deep end to make your spine crawl, Clayton is sure to turn heads and bend ears. Be ready for a high-energy performance of some down-home country music - peppered with a little bit of soul and some rock-n-roll! You won't want to miss this up-up-and-coming artist!
"Besides music, I really enjoy NASCAR, golf, and the outdoors. My free time consists of golfing and catching fish; they're good mind escapes after writing music all day. My friends would probably say I'm loud, energetic, funny and not really wild, but wildly funny! Me - on stage and in the writing room - are two different people. On stage I'm very much 'out there,' but when writing I become very quiet. They require two very different head spaces.
I have an amazing family: two brothers in the Marine Corps, a hard-working sister with an amazing daughter, and two parents that support me 110%, even when I feel like I can't suppport myself. I am not in a relationship; I can't afford one. My hobbies include drinking too much coffee, not sleeping enough, fishing, golfing, and playing guitar.
Writing songs is very important to me. My hopes and dreams are to write songs that last and impact peoples lives. As a performer and entertainer, I want to know that I can share pieces and moments of myself with the audience - moments that I hope can be intertwined with their lives."
"Music is about those moments, not just the notes and guitar riffs."
