Today, Andrew McMahon
released his debut solo EP, “The Pop Underground.” Now you’re probably
thinking, “Who?!” Andrew McMahon fronted pop/punk band Something Corporate and
piano/rock band Jack’s Mannequin. Still not ringing a bell? That’s probably
because he has never had a radio hit with any of his musical projects. But
don’t let that fool you. This guy is the full package.
Despite no radio airplay,
McMahon has had an extremely successful musical career and has gained an
enormous fan base over the past decade through extensive worldwide touring and
with music that appeals to a diverse audience. He also consistently puts on one
of the most amazing live shows I’ve ever seen (more on that later).
I’m being completely honest
when I say that there isn’t a song Andrew McMahon has written that I don’t
enjoy, whether it be for Something Corporate, Jack’s Mannequin, or his solo
music. This man is a brilliant songwriter, musician, and performer. His
passion is heard through each song and each performance.
His solo EP, “The Pop
Underground,” is now available on iTunes. He will be in Kansas City on June 21st
with Allen Stone and O.A.R at The Crossroads. You don’t want to miss this
I’ll leave you with a sample
of music from each of McMahon’s musical projects (Something Corporate, Jack’s
Mannequin, & Andrew McMahon).
