Clayton Mann is an entertainer - singer/songwriter - touring artist from Nashville, TN.
Nashville country artist, Clayton Mann, will tell you he has a mistress - and her name is rock-n-roll! With a strong preference for hard-charging guitar riffs and melodic fills, Clayton transplanted to Nashville 3 years ago bringing his powerful tenor voice and rock-inspired background with him. Overwhelmingly talented yet grossly underaged, Clayton began cutting his musical teeth in the dive bars of Chicago at just 11 years old. A professionally trained vocalist and guitarist, Clayton is influenced by outlaw country Waylon Jennings and Johnny Cash overlaid with rock-n-roll influences Guns-N-Roses, AC/DC and KISS. Pepper in some bluesy BB King and a little bit of Elvis Presley, and Clayton manages to fade genre to the back, placing live music back on the map. The Nashville rising star carries a 4-plus octave range that's sweet on the high notes with enough baritone on the deep end to make your spine crawl.
Releasing his 3rd single and first ballad, "MAYBE YOU ARE," July 2021, the young Chicago native prefers traditional country with a twist of rock that blends with the riffs, fills, and solos of classic rock. Catching the attention of talent buyers, Clayton has been a supporting artist at Country Fest Cadott, WI supporting Kane Brown, Dustin Lynch and more, as well as supporting Luke Combs at Kicker Country Stampede, 2021. Clayton 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, Clayton can be found in writers rounds down on Music Row or on stage at Ole Red's or the famous Wildhorse Saloon on Lower Broadway, Nashville. Clayton Mann is sure to turn heads and bend ears. Be prepared for a high energy performance of some down home country music, peppered with a little bit of soul and a whole lot of rock-n-roll! You won't want to miss this up-and-coming artist.
Clayton is a prior winner of Most Talented Teen Chicago and is a current member of The Recording Academy.
