Clayton Mann is an entertainer - singer/songwriter - touring artist from Nashville, TN.
Clayton Mann has managed to inject rock-n-roll into country music. The young Chicago native transplated to Nashville two years ago bringing his hard-charging rock-inspired background with him. Releasing his hot new debut single, "COOLER," the sonically pleasing "COOLER" is both traditional and contemporary country, with a twist of rock that brings the melodic riff and fill sections of guitar-charging rock. His follow up single, "One Day At A Time," is also streaming on all platforms.
Extremely talented, yet grossly underaged, the gregarious young Clayton began cutting his musical teeth in the dive bars of Chicago at just 11 years old. Galvanized by both rock and country, Clayton is influenced by outlaw country Waylon Jennings and Johnny Cash, overlayed with rock-n-roll influences Guns-N-Roses, AC/DC and KISS. Pepper in some bluesy BB King and a litle bit of Elvis Presley, and Clayton has managed to fade genre to the background and place live music back on the map.
Catching the attention of talent buyers, Clayton is a 2021 supporting artist at Country Fest Cadott, WI between main acts Kane Brown, Dustin Lynch, The Oak Ridge Boys and more, as well as supporting Luke Combs at the Kicker Country Stampede, Topeka KS, and John Pardi at the Greeley Stampede. 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 at national honky tonks and festivals, Clayton can be found in writers rounds down on Music Row or on stage on lower Broadway, Nashville.
