Ty Manning and the Slawdog Biscuits

Ty Manning has been making music in and around Athens, Georgia since the summer of 1994. His old band The Bearfoot Hookers had a pretty good run; 1,000's of shows, 3 full length/original albums, had songs on 3 Athfest CDs, won 2 Flagpole Music Awards, & have even been on CNN pickin' & a grinnin' at a Crop Mob! (Look it up. It's a country-hippie thang!) Ty also had a band called Beauty & the Beard with his now ex-wife Kelly Hoyle (Norma Rae). Both the marriage and the band fizzled out inspiring a ton of songs. Over the last year or so, Ty has put a together a band to bring those extremely personal songs to life. The lineup consists of: Scott Nicholson (keys & guitar), Derek Warren (bass), Connor Griffin (drums) and Adam Poulin (fiddle). After a few shows with no name, they decided to let their Facebook followers name the band. The winning name was TY MANNING AND THE SLAWDOG BISCUITS. They are a rock-n-roll band with deep connections to 70’s and 80’s country. All that being said, they can still pack a punch. Ty said, “We kinda sound like, if Ace Frehley from KISS sat in with The Black Crowes and did a Ronnie Milsap tune. OOH YEAH!” Ty has been called an idiot, a drunk, a dreamer, a life coach, the Capt'n of the party, a REVEREND, & hell... even a ninja, but no matter what anybody says, he can usually cause a pretty damn good time. These guys are definitely worth checking out!

TY MANNING AND THE SLAWDOG BISCUITS have their first record coming out on June 15th. It is called EMPTY HOUSE and will be available EVERYWHERE online. It will also be available in CD and VINYL form at live shows.
