Traveler: Tony Manard | Cargo Manifest: Memphis + Life in the South + Making Honest Music
The Mobius Theory Show
On this episode of Spaceport Radio, I talk with my friend Tony Manard about damn near everything. We talk Memphis, music, life in the South, the human condition, politics, compassion, the pandemic, and a little bit of Elvis. When you play his records or hear him play live, you get just about as honest a glimpse into what he's all about as is possible. His songs are unapologetically honest, alive, and timeless. It is a pleasure hearing about what motivates him, his history, and his process of bringing literature into music. Tony Manard has this to say about himself: "I am Memphis born and raised. I am active in the songwriting community here. I have played guitar in bands, worked as a stage hand, television engineer, cable guy, bingo card seller, and once as a pyrotechnics man for a rodeo. I'm a third generation (that I know of) bullshitter. I have collected stories and characters my whole life. My folks were teachers. I have been married forever, had kids too young, got them grown and am now resuming questionable behaviors. I also play occasionally with "The Big Ole Band" at venues in town. I typically go solo on the road. I got a guitar, a head full of songs and stories, a fairly reliable mini van and a wife that mostly keeps me out of trouble. I would love to come share some songs and laughs with you!"
