“Jean Mann is a very special talent!” -Cyndi Lauper
Noted alt-folk singer songwriter/artist/entrepreneur, Seattle’s Jean Mann has toured extensively since 2002. The innovative, self-taught performer shares her soulful life tales, woven through the voice of an angel. Her vocal prowess, combined with eclectic playing style, result in the homey, intimate feeling of sitting around a kitchen table with close friends - a wonderful concert experience.
She has released four original CD’s on her independent label, blue flower friday records, with her fourth. Jean’s third CD, Daisies and Fire, was co produced by Jean and longtime musical cohort, Bill Corral. The CD boasts such guest players as composer Wayne Horvitz on piano and Hammond B3 organ, and string players from Seattle Symphony and Teatro Zinzani. Her second CD, Seasons, was co-produced by Jean and Brendan Hill (Blues Traveler).
Jean has contributed tracks on compilation CD's for charities, has opened for national songwriter Peter Himmelman, and received kudos from jazz great, Jacqui Naylor, who, upon discovering Jean performing at a San Francisco coffeehouse, bought all her CD’s and said, “I love your voice and music!”
Jean’s most recent US tour took her out on the winding highways, covering 10000 miles in 34 days and 22 shows performed, around the perimeter of the US states. “Exhaustingly wonderful!” was her overwhelming road report.
Jean has opened for national acts Blame Sally and Peter Himmelman.
