Manzy Lowry

Manzy Lowry was born in West Texas but has called many places home across the Southwest. Consequently, his music is a combination of familiar sounds that cannot be made to fit neatly into one genre. Manzy’s musical influences began with his grandmother’s love for the folk and hymns along with his brother’s love for rock and roll with a blues flair. In college, Manzy was introduced to the sounds of The Band, Guy Clark, Townes Van Zandt, Tom Petty, and Jason Boland. Inspired, he picked up a guitar and soon began playing, writing, and performing. Manzy is now known for his original ballads that are rough around the edges and dusty like an old book left on the shelf. His stories can paint pictures that transport your mind to a particular place in time. Manzy’s compositions are unique and authentic even if that means going against popular demand. The result: a sound that you didn’t know you were missing. Manzy has traveled all across the United States performing. His third album, Warm Wine, is a collection of stories ranging from sweet to difficult times or a cross between the two. Produced and recorded by David Beck at Fast Horse Studios, Warm Wine was released in 2018. Faced with the difficulty of categorizing his own music, Manzy asks that you give a listen and decide for yourself. Manzy has opened for popular bands including Billy Jo Shaver, Ray Wylie Hubbard, Dean Dillon, Hayes Carll, Corb Lund, and Shane Smith and the Saints. He has shared the stage with The Tallent Brothers, the Possum Posse, Doug Moreland, and Mike and the Moonpies. In 2014, Manzy was accepted into The Last Honky Tonk Music Series.
