Hollywood Music in Media Awards Interview
REBELMANN to release single INDIAN LAND May 10, 2015. Be Ready!
PRLog - April 28, 2015 - LOS ANGELES -- First of all, these teens write their own music, play their own instruments, and sing without autotune or studio trickery! And it is GOOD!! The REBELMANN brothers!!
This music holds up to any rock record out there and better! ... because these guys are still teens!!
The lead singer and guitarist, Clayton Mann, sounds well beyond his young age, and has a vocal range that holds its own in the arena of rock singers. Amazing power too!
The lead guitarist, and lefty Les Paul player, Johnathon Mann, is an amazing player with a wide variety of styles most notably reminiscent of Slash, with the crying wah wah ripping lead solos over a bed of grinding solid rhythm section filled in by brothers Clayton and Bryce Mann.
Bryce Mann is the drummer and twin brother to Johnathon, and he is a total drumming powerhouse! I hear so many influences young and old that it is difficult to catagorize him into one particular style, though Tommy Lee and Alex Van Halen come to mind...
This song, INDIAN LAND, is quite controversial. It is hauntingly magnificent, both in vocal delivery and musicianship of the MANN brothers. You simply have to hear this song!

Latest Press Releases By “REBELMANN”
Simply known as The Dakota 38+2, the largest Mass Execution in the history of the United States was ordered by none other than Abraham Lincoln. Native Americans are set to journey 330 miles on horseback, over 16 arduous days across the Great Plains, to the mass hanging site in Mankato, Minnesota. A journey of healing, reconciliation, and remembrance of the executed Dakota 38+2.
PRLog - Dec. 4, 2014 - CHICAGO -- The history of the Native American is very selective, especially when it's ugly. And ugly is an understatement. We have all been indoctrinated into the big-band, musical themed "cowboys and Indians" movie mantra. You know those movies - The ones of the beautiful Native Americans getting gloriously killed by the brave cowboy guiding his chuckwagon across the prairie; his bonneted bride and blue-eyed children bouncing in the back as he valiantly guides them to a new life in the West. He single-handidly kills the mocha-skinned Natives and their families; and somehow, the whole scene feels a lot better as the big-band, feel-good music plays on in the background. American history - glorified. American history - selectively taught. American history - now made "civilized" by that Marlboro-looking man of a cowboy.
THAT contradictory word - "civilized." The "civilized" systematic killing, and attempted mass genocide, of the indigenous peoples of these United States. That Is the Truth. Simply put - The Ugly Truth. The untold story - of the real history - of the Native American, not taught in the history books in order to create a backstory of glorified greatness, by the likes of Abraham Lincoln and Andrew Jackson, who like many other past presidents, systematically tried to exterminate, yet failed, the original peoples of these United States.
There is one caveat. They are still here ..... and alive ..... The Native American.
The First Nation peoples of these United States are not the playbook of mascots Washington "Redskins" owner, Dan Snyder, celebrates like a smorgasbord of homegoods, where back-in-the-day a "bloody heathen scalp" or "Redskin" fetched a remarkable $200. They are instead, a celebrated people who strive to keep their culture alive, along with protecting the very land their ancestors valiantly died for.
The removal of the Dakota Indians from Minnesota and the upper midwest, in what was, and still is, basically a race war, has left many Native Americans traumatized by these acts of "civilized" behavior. In fact, The Indian Removal Act, later signed by Andrew Jackson in 1830, would further attempt to repress and silence the indigenous peoples of the United States. In order to annihilate the Native American, the Dakotas were exiled from the Fort Snelling Concentration Camp in Minnesota and marched, or put on cattle trains and river boats, to the Crow Creek Concentration Camp in South Dakota, where bands of the Oceti Sakowin remain to this day. (Yes, you are familiar with this story - the attempted-genocidal, grotesque treatment of the Native American is the basis Adolph Hitler used for the better known attempted genocide of the Jewish people - the Holocaust.)
The Dakota 38 is just one of those selective instances American history has tried to forget. The very public, simultaneous, mass hanging of 38 Native Americans, for refusing to eat grass and endure mass tribal starvation on their encroached reservation lands, is discussed only in very hushed circles, is not taught in schools, and certainly is not a plaquared moment at the Abraham Lincoln Memorial in Springfield, Illinois. And certainly not discussed is the digging up of the bodies to use as scientific experiments shortly after the execution.
But the Oceti Sakowin, or Seven Council Fires, do have Mr. Jim Miller, a U.S. Vietnam Veteran and descendent of the Dakotas themselves. Mr. Miller first organized the annual journey from South Dakota back to their original homelands in Minnesota in 2005. The Dakota 38+2 Memorial Ride came to Mr. Miller, who had no prior knowledge of the mass execution, through a series of visions and dreams. The arduous 330-mile memoriam ride, via horseback, commences on December 10th, on the banks of the Missouri River at the Lower Brule' Indian Reservation in South Dakota. Sixteen days later, a ceremonial ending of the ride occurs at the hanging site in Mankato, Minnesota, 10 AM, December 26th. The mass execution of the Dakota 38 still leaves Native America searching for healing and reconciliation.
It is a ride of remembrance, healing, and honor for the descendents of those who died protecting their women, children, homes, and the very land they were born upon. The Dakota 38 should move all of us to a conversation. A conversation about healing, unity, education, and reconciliation. The Native American deserves their history be told, in full truth, no matter how ugly history has treated them. It is time we celebrate America's indigenous people and culture, and unlock America's 500 Nations.
They were not only born IN America. They ARE America.
[Writer's Note: REBELMANN's knowledge of the Dakota 38 came about after visiting Pine Ridge Indian Reservation and Wounded Knee in South Dakota, 2012. The 3 teen brothers will travel to the Lower Brule' Indian Reservation on December 8th to participate in the 330-mile horseback ride to Mankato, Minnesota. Inspired by their story, the teen rock band of brothers wrote their song "INDIAN LAND," and plan on releasing the debut rock single in 2015.]

TEEN NATION TOUR in Madison County, North Carolina - Part 1 REBELMANN
Dixie Land Reviews - 9/26/14
REBELMANN - 15-year-old Clayton Mann is the lead singer/rythm guitarist; 17-year-old Bryce Mann is the drummer, and twin to Bryce is 17-year-old Johnathon Mann. These brothers put on a rock show that can stand up to some of the best rockers in the U.S.! The music they play is somewhat reminiscent of bands such as AC/DC. These brothers have 10 singles under their belts,and at the young age of just 13, Clayton was voted into The Recording Academy! While talking with them, I
learned how each and every one of them had been bullied at school. They didn't let that stop them from living their dream.
RIVENMASTER's PLACE Features REBELMANN® on Young Treble Talent Website
The Wildly Popular Anti-Bullying Musical Tour brings on REBELMANN
PRLog - Aug. 10, 2014 - CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Clayton Mann, and his twin brothers Johnathon and Bryce Mann, better known as the Chicago rock band REBELMANN, will be performing on the Teen Nation Tour, starting September 22 in North Carolina. Simply hashtagged #TNT on popular social media sites, a new generation of young, talented artists will deliver powerful anti-bullying messages to student bodies as they travel across the country. Through artist talks of personal experieces, the Teen Nation Tour delivers a one-and-a-half hour, power-packed, musical program that now has students on social media sites requesting the tour stop in their town, thus confirming the anti-bullying message is resonating with their peers.
Clayton Mann, 14, and lead singer of REBELMANN, personally identifies with the #TNT format. "Kids our age respond much better to us, as artists' their age, rather than someone older, say 33, talking at them about something they're not really going through."
His older brother, Bryce Mann, 17, who happens to be wildly popular with the students on Teen Nation Tour, chimes in. "Cyber-bullying is nonstop. Because of the internet, kids just can't get away from all the hate once school is out. We're here to tell them, 'Not everyone is going to like you, and that's OK, because you're OK.' But you have to be strong enough to love yourself, and not really let what others say get inside your head. There will always be someone who
hates you, or hates what you do. I've been hated for drumming, for not playing sports, for being in a band, for playing live music. But you know what - they're not going to stop me. This is what I do. I like what I do. I'm good at what I do, and I'm going to keep doing it. There's only one person who can stop you - and that's you. That's the message we bring to Teen Nation Tour. So we're here to help give kids confidence in themselves. Be who you are, and be OK with that."
Johnathon Mann brings his message to Teen Nation Tour through a different medium, his guitar. With his mirrored sun glasses and lush, long hair, the lead lefty guitarist is known to play fast and furious on his gold-top Gibson Les Paul. Not as verbose as his twin, Bryce, Johnathon mesmerizes the students with his guitar skills, as a red-tail Hawk feather sways from his guitar head - a gift from the Navajo. As he bends his guitar strings into the next stratosphere, Johnathon also knows the sting of being bullied. His long hair has brought many comments of hate, his guitar skills challenged, his band - put down. But he chooses to march to the beat of a different drummer, or at least to the beat of his twin, Bryce.
Johnathon's message to the student body is simple, "Keep doing what you're doing. There are 7 billion people in the world - if someone hates you - that's only one person - seriously,
just keep marching."
The Teen Nation Tour has been delivering messages of anti-bullying for 3 years now. As the tour continues to travel nationwide, it has gained much popularity amongst the schools and student bodies it serves. Throughout the year, #TNT receives many messages of gratitude from both administrators and individual students. In addition to the weekly school performances, which typically are scheduled twice daily, the Teen Nation Tour also performs weekend shows at various venues throughout the tour. Be sure to follow #TNT, and the #NextGeneration of artists, as they kickoff their schedule August 28th in Huntington, West Virginia.
PRLog (Press Release) - Jul. 1, 2014 - CHICAGO -- It's all about the Music. Write It. Play It. Perform It. That's the essence of the 3 REBELMANN® brothers playbook.
Johnathon, Bryce, and Clayton Mann are preparing to hit the road again. This time, embarking on a seven state "KEEPING MUSIC REAL" Tour with budding singer-songwriter Kirsten Sowers out of Blue Bell, Pennsylvania. Teaming up with Kirsten Sowers, 14, was an easy choice for REBELMANN®. Having met in 2013, Kirsten, like the Mann brothers, also writes and performs her own music while playing acoustic guitar. At other times, she is joined on stage by a full, live band.
What makes the teen "KEEPING MUSIC REAL" Tour unique? Well, actually the music itself - it's all real. There will be no backing tracks of guitars, drums, synthesizers or otherwise; nor will there be any backline piped in over the PA. All the vocals will be live, as well as the musical performances, without autotune or any other effects. REBELMANN® is set to open the 2-hour set with an individual 40-minute performance. Then Kirsten will join the live band of brothers on stage, bringing her vocal talents, along with guitar playing, to the stage for a combined vocal and musical performance of rocked-up country. Kirsten will then close the 2-hour show with her own individual set, performing both original and cover tunes.
The "KEEPING MUSIC REAL" Tour will continue to hone the young artists' musicianship. All 3 Mann brothers, as well as Miss Sowers, remain enrolled in weekly guitar, drum, and vocal lessons. They are firm in their belief that "life is real, music should be real too."
Johnathon Mann, lead lefty guitarist of REBELMANN®, said it best when referencing Slash as one of his musical influences, "It's not just what he plays, it's how he plays it. What really catches me is his phrasing. That's something a computer can't duplicate, the raw performance of live music. It doesn't have to always be perfect, because it's human. That's what makes music real."
REBELMANN® is also in the process of recording their debut album, "INDIAN LAND," in which they wrote all the original songs. Legendary rock guitarist, Bruce Kulick, (KISS and Grand Funk), continues to advise the young band of brothers on all things music. Producer/Engineer Brian Virtue, whose credits include Jane's Addiction, Chevelle, Audioslave, and 30 Seconds To Mars, is also involved in the project.

August 31, 2013
Local rock band, REBELMANN®, has exploded onto the rock music scene with fiery instrumentals and strong vocals . They have caught the attention of the iconic, Gene Simmons, who along with Paul Stanley, formed "the ultimate rock band," KISS. The band and it's rock idol connected at Rock 'N Roll Fantasy Camp last year, when REBELMANN backlined Gene Simmons. In the past year, a NoiseCreep article about REBELMANN was linked to Gene Simmons' personal website. Mr. Simmons also tweeted at the band to send him their demo, when they acquired about his label.
REBELMANN is a band of brothers. Frontman and youngest brother, Clayton, is a young man with a booming voice and powerful stage presence. Twins, Bryce and Johnathon play the drums and lead guitar. Bryce creates his own rythm with his skill and speed on the drums. Lefty lead guitarist, Johnathon, is one of few guitarists who uses his pinky finger when rocking out. Tim Joyce fills in as studio bassist. The brothers are accomplished musicians, write their own music and are committed to "keeping real music alive." REBELMANN's mentor is Bruce Kulick. He played lead guitar for KISS for 12 years.
Gene Simmons turned 64 on August 25, 2013. KISS is in their 40th year celebration of being a band. They are still performing and making a profound impact on the next generation of rock. "Hopefully REBELMANN will be the next big branding of a rock band," as stated by frontman, Clayton.
REBELMANN has released 3 of 10 singles on iTunes, GooglePlay, Amazon and all worldwide platforms. They also have ringtones available on iTunes. REBELMANN is currently on tour with the Anti-Bullying "Teen Nation Tour." They are playing the Montgomery County Coliseum in Winona, Mississippi.
