Clovis Mann / Press

“While Clovis Mann retains much of their jam-band heritage, they show signs of evolving into a band that has a bit more depth and staying power, rolling with the punches and emerging all the stronger for it. ”

“Clovis Mann wears its personality on its sleeve. Its lively blues rock is unpretentious, working-class, beer-soaked, therapeutic, hard-driving and in search of justice.”

“And from the first adamantine blues-rock figure that sets the heavy, masculine vibe of the majestically atavistic road song "Highway's End" to the skiffling acoustic guitar that drives the Allmans-inspired down-home blues of "Whisky Still," Clovis Mann drink deeply of that elixir.”

“In fact, you get the sense that as long as they've managed to whip up the mood-altering mix of testosterone and endorphins that made Hendrix's work simultaneously earthy and cosmic, they've reached their own personal nirvana...”

“The heaviness of the lyrics results in a strong statement, with war, death, wrongdoing and hardship being central themes. But underneath these themes flows a current of hope and the strength to persevere, a sentiment that often bears repeating. ”

“Though they do pretty much everything well, the most impressive attributes of Clovis Mann’s style are their refreshing ability to jam without sounding like a jam band, and their unflappable commitment to being thoroughly and brilliantly old-school.”
