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
