New York, NY, April 23, 2007 --(PR.com
)-- On June 26th, 2007, Sunset Records will release Summertime, a new album from Jono Manson, a gifted musician whose soulful voice masterfully shows passion in classic down home rock n’ roll songs. Manson‘s rock influences helped to create 12 tracks that are sweltering and incendiary -- and true to his music. Jono and his band were adamant in their desire to continue to blend their unique brand of folk, rock, blues and soul with his powerful vocals.
Co-Produced with long time collaborator Craig Dreyer, Manson and his band chose powerful classic sounding songs such as "I’ll Tell You What I Know" the record's first single, and blended that with the soulful tunes like "Red Wine in the Afternoon." The CD’s final track “Summertime’s Almost Over," written by Manson, will be the CD’s third single to be released this year. Manson himself penned these songs as distinctive, sophisticated Rock N’ Roll driven ballads delivered in his own soulful style.
Manson is no stranger to the music industry. Jono’s songs have been in soundtracks for movies like The Postman, Kingpin and Eight Days A Week, as well as on an HBO summer promo ad. He most recently produced "Il Giocoliere" a wonderful and quirky album for Italian singer-songwriter "Momo", released by Sony/BMG International.
Jono and his band are known for their relentless touring and high energy shows that have won them legions of fans all over the world. They have performed sold out shows around the country, have been regulars on the festival circuit and have a Europe tour in place for May and June this year. They will be hitting the road in support of Summertime in early summer and the shows will be available as Live Downloads at Sunset-Live.com.
