Mano McLaughlin is a singer songwriter from Manchester, England. He has written and played music all his life, growing up in a big musical family meant there was always a song to join in on, always an instrument to pick up.

Playing in many bands over the years, funded, or not, by deals with Chrysalis Records, BMG Publishing and others…

Distilled Records approached Mano in early 2013 and asked for 10 songs, stripped back, simple, the songs laid bare along with his heart and soul… a few exchanges of emails later and Distilled Records received 30 demos with a note that read ‘pick 10’. Peach Got Bones was recorded in just 4 days at Mano’s house and brings to mind the English pop sensibility of Ray Davies and the intensity of Elliot Smith.

Mano McLaughlin is so unassuming in both his playing and production that you can’t help but love what you hear. His imagery is simple but unexpected, and delivered with irresistible musical phrasing. An effortless knack for words and tunes; what more can you ask for?
