Album Notes
Joe Mannix is a key figure of the New York City songwriter underground, hosting monthly showcases and building a cult reputation with raves from the NY Times, Washington Post and media/airplay in the UK, Spain, Japan, France and more.
Joe is constantly touring and garnering airplay, fans and a reputation as a formidable live act either solo or with his trio ("with melody and muscle...the band and their leader held court from the get go" Amplifier, Feb. 2003).

This is Joe's first solo album (there were two acclaimed CDs with his pop rock band, Mannix). Recorded in an old dark church in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada, with the cream of that city's roots musicians - spearheaded by producers Glenn Marshall (a Daniel Lanois engineer) and Canadian roots pop icon Dave Rave (Teenage Head, The Shakers). The Catherine North Studio was wired by Bob Lanois (brother of Daniel). The result is a kind of sweet blend of The Band, Phil Ochs, Dylan, PF Sloan, John Mayer, David Gray, Jim Croce; familiar and yet brand new at the same time, a comfortable warm wind of Americana blowin' down the winter cobblestone streets of New York's East Village. The sound of the New York City new folk underground.

Originally self-released & now on Bongobeat with new artwork & remastered.

New York City critically acclaimed indie folk pop

* Produced by Glenn Marshall (Daniel Lanois) and Dave Rave (Teenage Head)

* Phil Ochs meets PF Sloan with The Band.

* "With a melodicism & clarity missing in much of rock today, White Flag is a rare indie-label pearl amid a bed of oysters." - Peter Parisi, Washington Times

* "Melancholy & wistfulness... a songwriter of lyrical vision & artistic verve..." - Bucketfull of Brains, UK

* "Great tunes with fantastic melodies and slightly twisted but generally heartfelt lyrics" The New York Times (review of a previous Mannix project).

* "A sweet folk-rock album" - Time Out NY

* "The balance between pop and folk makes White Flag a consistently enjoyable listen." - Amplifier

Dylan Tyler

A fantastic CD!!
Wow, this is an amazing piece of work. Amazing songwriting and a great recorded vibe. There is not a bad song on this disc. A rare thing these days. A splendid mix of rock folk and pop. Joe Mannix is perhaps the best Singer Songwriter I've heard in many years. Get this CD! I can't wait for the follow up!

Mannix mixes FOLK and POP into one AMAZING album
White Flag is a musical rarity - a CD with a full track listing of amazing songs. Joe Mannix mixes folk and pop into one amazing album. One of my favorite tracks is the Caribbean tinged "Port Aransas" that sounds a lot like Brent Tyler's guitar and vocal style. Mannix is a great Harmonica player as well. This is showcased on a number of songs. It's always great when a talented songwriter gets noticed and hopefully White Flag will allow Joe Mannix that chance. There are no duds on this CD. I haven't taken this one out of my CD player.

Self-described as "Phil Ochs meets PF Sloan with The Band," one thing is for sure- this is dark and deep Americana that shouldn't be missed. With an exceptional talent to blend the accessibility of a gentle Pop style with the edgy and gutsy substance of Americana and Folk, Joe Mannix keep your ears perked up and the heart in waiting with his personable style that sings with the occasional stylistic references of David Gray and with the familiar and comfortable groove of 70's classic rock.

Folk Rocker Extraordinaire with an Exceptional Gift For Intricate Yet Memorable
I picked up this CD cold because I liked the songwriter's name, Mannix, like the old TV show. What a find it was! This guy can really write melodies. Everything he writes sounds interesting and fresh because of his melodic gifts, at least on this cd, his debut. His lyrics are not bad either, always passionate and poetic and never cliche. His songs range from anthemic folk rock, island tinged acoustic, meditative pop to winding melodic song poems--all with great hooks and interesting chord progressions. His voice is reminiscent Ron Sexsmith and Phil Ochs, but he sings with a lot more power than either...(for more of this review go to
