The Man Made Band's style of music is a mixture of new and old country, bluegrass, blues, southern gospel, and southern rock music. "The mix is not something we ever did on purpose" says Jason Blankenship "Man Made's lead singer". "We have all grown up playing music, and all of us in different styles, so the combination of all of our strong suits has grown into the sound that makes us who we are as a band. "When Man Made started out we all just clicked. We were not trying to fit into any specific genre. I guess if you have to label it we are a Southern Country Rock Band. " says Blankenship.
The Man Made Band consists of five members, Jason Blankenship on lead vocals and guitar, Casey Camp on lead guitar and vocals, Brian Abson on drums and vocals, Bradd Poole on lead guitar and vocals, and most recently added member James Embrey on bass.
