ABOUT 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 signing 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 Theatre in Los Angeles.  In July 2006, McMahon founded a non-profit charity, entitled “The Dear Jack Foundation” which advocates for and supports initiatives that directly benefit adolescents and young adults (AYA) diagnosed with cancer.  McMahon released a documentary titled "Dear Jack" in November of 2009 which chronicled his own battle with leukemia, his treatment and recovery.  For more on Andrew McMahon please visit: AndrewMcmahon.com
