Whether he's fronting pop punk bands like Something Corporate and Jack's Mannequin or taking the stage solo, Andrew McMahon is proof that a man and his piano can rock with the best of them. Riding high from the 2013 release his solo debut LP The Pop Underground, McMahon continues to thrill fans on tour, delivering nostalgia-heavy sets of hits from his previous bands alongside solo material. An electrifying performer known for getting up and dancing on top of his trusty piano, McMahon is sure to bring his infectious energy to the stage in 2014 as an opening act on Matt Nathanson and Gavin DeGraw's summer tour.
Born in Massachusetts, McMahon began teaching himself the piano at age eight, playing by ear and performing solos before he could even read music. His first break came as frontman for Something Corporate - the band's 2000 demo album resulted in a record deal with indie label Drive-Thru Records. The project's piano-driven rock sound was a hit with critics and fans alike, paving the way for several successful albums and extensive touring that included an electric string of shows on the Vans Warped Tour. While the band took a hiatus in 2004 McMahon launched Jack's Mannequin, a solo side project that found massive success in the second half of the decade, including two Top 10 albums. In 2013, McMahon released The Pop Underground, his first official solo release and the impetus for his highly anticipated 2014 tour dates.
