Album Notes
“The gravelly-voiced Manson attacks the high art of low-rent songcraft with a paid assassin’s precision.” Huh Magazine

“Jono Manson and his band cook up a saucy brew of blues and rock, as shaky vocals, guttering guitar riffs, and solid drumming combine to deliver a sharpened hook.” Billboard

“This veteran New York bar band manages to rise above the roots-rock riffraff offering an effective cure for the alternative rock blahs in the process.”
Entertainment Weekly

“Manson was such a key player in transforming a bunch of dingy clubs into havens for roots music that he is often referred to as the ‘Godfather of the scene”. Relix Magazine

“One heck of a healthy concoction of country, blues and roots music. Listening to the music makes it easy to see how so many rockers fell under the spell of Manson’s genius.” The Advocate

“The Worms helped turn Nightingale into a hangout for local musicians and scenesters and wound up becoming local heroes, influencing countless local bands.” The New York Times

“Jono Manson is a son born of Americana with a voice and sound unattainable anywhere else.” Rockpile Magazine

“Jono Manson serves up a rippling blend of blue-eyed soul, country-rock and funked up R&B.” No Depression Magazine

“On this night at the San Francisco house that Graham built, Jono Manson and band showed why leader Manson was considered one of the Godfathers of New York’s music scene during the 1980’s and the large and most enthusiastic crowd showed the artist their approval.” Rock Love

“Jono Manson is a soulful guitarist and singer who here leads a loose band through some R&B-tinged rock. Though the disc includes such guests as Nicky Hopkins, fellow Downtown NYC icon Ron Sunshine and Blues Traveler’s harmonica prodigy John Popper, the show here belongs to Manson, whose rich and smooth vocals are complimented by a limber band of equally impressive talent.” Huh Magazine

“This new collection from Jono Manson reels and rocks, serenades the soul, and cuts to the heart of the matter. Strong new compositions like "Alibi," and the title cut "Live Your Love" each take on their own life. This is tough stuff from a stellar songwriter and performer who makes every note and phrase count.” True Blue

"If it wasn't for Jono Manson, then Blues Traveler, Spin Doctors and Joan Osborne and the New York jam-band scene may never have happened. It was Manson who showed these young whippersnappers how to turn a blase bar crowd into true believers at the now legendary hole-in-the-wall, Nightingales." High Times Magazine

"One Horse Town is nothing short of a portable saturday night. It comes complete with smoking horns, hot players (like the late keyboard god Nicky Hopkins, drummer Ian Wallace and harpist John Popper) and no frills R&B and all thats missing is Manson working the crowd between songs. Equal parts NRBQ, Asbury Dukes and side four of Exile on Main Street"
