Making his way in the footsteps of those who came before him in the Texas music scene, singer/songwriter Manzy Lowry carries on the outlaw tradition, country soul, and Texas pride as simply heard in his music.
The Ballinger, Texas, born songster grew up learning music from his grandmother; this influence followed Manzy through his college days when he was inspired by Jason Boland, Roger Alan Wade, and Zach Huckabee. Lowry picked up a guitar, learned a few chords and began to create music in the style of those he followed. Soon after he heard the tunes of Guy Clark and Townes Van Zandt, Manzy began writing songs that tell stories.
Original ballads are trademarks of Lowry’s talent. Rough around the edges and dusty as an old bible left on a shelf for many years – might be a mere idea of the feel for Manzy’s music after a listen or two. His story-songs paint pictures in your mind of particular places in time, and they may just make you feel proud to be a Texan.
