Through his incredible career John Mann has developed a wealth of support and resources from his colleagues, peers and devoted fan base.

With 11 albums and countless tours of the U.K., Europe and North America with Spirit of the West, John returns with his newest work as a solo artist called The Waiting Room.

Mann’s The Waiting Room is a powerful testament to the journey Mann took while he was sick with cancer in 2009 through 2011. For several months John was bedridden in the hospital and confronted by the challenge of his life and for his life.

John’s lyrical approach on The Waiting Room captures his experience and creates a natural script and visual journey taking the listener to the powerful realization that everyone knows someone touched by cancer.

Each song delivers heartfelt tears and uplifting laughter as he reveals the most vulnerable moments of recovery from this life-threatening disease.
