Harry Manx has been dubbed an "essential link" between the music of East and West, creating musical short stories that wed the tradition of the Blues with the depth of classical Indian ragas. His unique sound is bewitching and deliciously addictive to listen to. Born on the Isle of Man, Manx spent his childhood in Canada and left in his teens to live in Europe, Japan, India and Brazil. He honed his hypnotic live show on street corners, in cafes, bars and at festivals. But it was Indian music that captured his attention and in the mid 80s he began a five-year tutelage with Rajasthani Indian musician Vishwa Mohan Bhatt (Grammy winner with Ry Cooder for A Meeting by the River). Receiving the gift of Bhatt's custom-made, self-designed mohan veena (a 20-stringed sitar/guitar hybrid) was the catalyst for Harry to forge a new path with his now signature east-meets-west style of music. While the mohan veena itself is beyond exotic, Manx uses it within traditional Western sound structures. A successful touring performer, Manx has brought his "breathtaking" solo shows across Canada and into the USA, Australia, and Europe. He has appeared at many prestigious festivals, world-class theatres, concert halls and infamous Blues clubs around the globe. Playing the Mohan Veena, lap steel, harmonica, stomp box, and banjo, Manx quickly envelops the audience into what has been dubbed "the Harry Zone" with his warm vocals and the hauntingly beautiful melodies of his original songs. It's in the live setting, Manx says, that the bridge between "heavenly" India and "earthy" American blues is most effectively built. "Indian music moves inward," he explains. "It's traditionally used in religious ceremonies and meditation, because it puts you into this whole other place ... Western music has the ability to move out, into celebration and dance. I love to see that working — that effect on the audience. My goal has always been to draw the audience as deep as possible into the music." Manx is a prolific artist, releasing seven albums in a seven-year span with no signs of stopping. He has received three Maple Blues Awards and several Canadian Folk Music Awards. Most recently he was the recipient of CBC Radio's Great Canadian Blues Awards for 2007. Other accolades in 2007 include two Maple Blues awards (for Acoustic Act of the Year with Kevin Breit and Songwriter of the Year) and two Canadian Folk Music Award nominations (with Kevin Breit), for "Best Ensemble" and "Pushing the Boundaries". In addition, "In Good We Trust" was nominated for a Western Canada Music Award for Outstanding Roots Recording (duo) and made Penguin Eggs Magazine's list of the top five folk/roots/world music albums of 2007.
