Andrew McMahon

Long time resident of southern California, Andrew McMahon is best known as lead vocalist, pianist and primary songwriter for bands Something Corporate and Jack's Mannequin. Andrew's blend of vocal and songwriting skills combined with the incorporation of his piano playing, led punk-pop quintet Something Corporate to their first major record label singing under MCA Records, who released the band's critically acclaimed album Leaving Through the Window in 2002. Shortly thereafter, the band found success on the road with main stage gigs on the Warped Tour and tours overseas. In the summer of 2004, Something Corporate decided to take a break, at which point McMahon found himself writing a batch of confessional piano-driven songs that explored his return home to Orange County and the dissolution of a long term relationship. With the help of several musician friends (which included producer Jim Wirt and Mötley Crüe's Tommy Lee), McMahon began recording Everything in Transit under the moniker Jack's Mannequin which released in August of 2005 under Warner Brothers' Maverick Records. McMahon went on to release another studio album with Jack's Mannequin titled The Glass Passenger, under which he toured with the likes of The Fray and Weezer. People and Things was the final release from Jack's Mannequin which was released in the fall of 2011 and charted at number 9 on the Billboard album charts. The band played their two final sold out shows on November 11th and 12th 2012 at the El Rey Theater in Los Angeles. In July 2006, McMahon founded a non-profit charity, entitled "The Dear Jack Foundation" to raise funds for cancer research. The organization is dedicated to raising money and awareness to aid in the fight against young adult cancer. McMahon released a documentary titled "Dear Jack" in November of 2009 which chronicled his own battle with leukemia, his treatment and recovery.

From backwoods barbecues and community gatherings; Allen Stone emerges to share personal
melodies, telling his tales of life after just 24 years. Getting his start singing at his father's church in
small-town America; it wasn't until later when introduced to the greats of soul music (Marvin Gaye,
Aretha Franklin) and then to the confessional lyrical fashion of the 60's -70's singer/ songwriters, did
music begin to ignite intense passion, eventually carrying this boy to a musical home.
On his self-titled sophomore album - an independent self-release which hit digital shelves October 4,
Allen has pushed his sound and lyricism to a greater level of noted individuality. It touches upon a
range of styles and themes. Integrating classic soul, catchy pop hooks, r&b beats and folk roots with
lyrical matters of testimonial broken relationships, poisonous politics and the age-old topic of simple,
pure celebration. Stone's music is notable for his finely crafted evocative songs and a fresh, smooth,
soul-filled voice-one that certainly belies his age.
Allen Stone has shot up the R&B/Soul charts on iTunes, peaking at the number 2 spot, and hit #9 and
#62 on the Billboard Heatseekers and R&B/Hip Hop Album charts, respectively, and has garnered
national praise - USA Today called him a "pitch-perfect powerhouse". He has sold-out tour dates in
numerous markets under his belt including Seattle, San Francisco, Washington DC, New York, and
Los Angeles. A performance on Conan on October 26 along with his emphasis on live performances
has landed nods from the Washington Post, New York Times, Grantland, and others - all without any
support of a label, publisher, or publicist.
