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.

As of 2014 Manzy was accepted into The Last Honky Tonk Music Series.

“When you bring my friend Manzy Lowry and his band to play in your town, they will take the stage with all the intensity of a West Texas thunder storm and make themselves as welcome as a good West Texas rain! It can’t get any better than that!”Kent Finlay

“Manzy Lowry Band – Muddy Waters Staking out a territory out on the grungy edge of modern Texas country-rock, Austin-area songwriter Manzy Lowry comes off both genial and challenging, carefree and introspective all at once on his first full-length record. There’s a strong whiff of outsider art to his approach – he doesn’t sing so much as he growls, whispers, and drawls his way through oddball tales and offbeat poems – but there’s also some solid nods to traditional full-band songcraft, like the fiddle hoedown “Caroline Lee” and the finger-popping backbeat of the title track. Perhaps, though, he’s most at home in rambling narratives like “Blind Rattlesnake” (which sounds like a spaghetti Western with peyote in the marinara) or the more earnest “Age.” File under: for the adventurous, by the adventurous.”Mike Ethan Messick
