“Manx’s real skill lays in creating a rare musical place where blues, country, folk and Indian classical music co-exist as some spirit force.”
– Frank Hadley, Downbeat Magazine

“Watching Harry play tonight I feel like I learned something new …. ”
– Bruce Springsteen (after seeing Harry perform “I’m On Fire” at the International Guitar Festival in NYC)

“Canadian guitarist and singer-songwriter Harry Manx is an artist that critics have occasionally had a hard time getting their minds around. His unique amalgam of blues and other American roots music, classical Indian forms, and bits of rock, pop, and folk makes him difficult to pigeonhole, and self-appointed gatekeepers of those traditions sometimes bemoan his lack of purity, stubbornly missing the point. But Manx’s trip is really quite easy to grasp: He’s an accomplished and adventurous lap-slide guitarist – whether playing a National resonator, a solidbody lap-steel, a modified banjo or cigar-box guitar, or his signature 20-string Mohan Veena – and a compelling singer with a rich, warm, and soulful voice who writes intelligent and compassionate songs and puts them over with heartfelt conviction.”
– Barry Cleveland, Guitar Player

“A modern day troubadour, Canadian-born Manx sings with an intimate, quiet warmth that makes his shows mesmerizing. The subtle interplay between the haunting notes of the sitar and the gentle, rhythmic groove of the blues gives his songs a beautiful sensuality that defies comparison.”
– Eugene Weekly, Nov 2005

“Canada’s most versatile and expressive blues player”
– Billboard Magazine

“Canadian guitarist Harry Manx knows his instrument the way most men know their television remote controls.”
– Time Out, New York City

“Like a lot of top singer songwriters Harry projects an intimacy & old friend quality from artist to listener … ”
– Billy Hutchinson, Blues Matters!
