“I admire the way artists like Pete Seeger and Utah Phillips lived their lives — firm in their convictions, seeking to produce their art and share it with the people, but not concerned about chasing fame or how many records they sold,” Mann said. “I perform because I believe in these songs and their message. And I know that singing and sharing them helps people to cope with the struggles of everyday life, and find the strength to continue fighting for a better world.”        – New York singer-songwriter George Mann
