Mister Mann is the solo project of Spirit of the West’s front man and songwriter John Mann. After 11 albums and countless tours of the UK, Europe and North America with Spirit, December Looms is a return to Mann’s stripped down Alt Folk roots. Mann pens beautiful melodies with emotionally honest lyrics that capture the intimate moments of his hometown of Vancouver, its occupants, the fragile details of their dysfunctional love and the loss of a city’s innocence. If Damien Rice was Jeff Tweedy and Jeff Tweedy was Josh Ritter, you’d come away with something kindred to December Looms.
John Mann is also an actor of stage, film, and television and currently can be seen on the CBC TV drama Intelligence as CSIS Director James Mallaby.
