Having been ejected from LIPA in his second year, it was a chance late night meeting in a Liverpool kebab shop that brought songwriter Joe McDonnell together with Chris and Ben. Along with Joe’s guitarist brother Sam, their shared obsession for the seventies West-Coast vibe and harmonies became the backbone to Man From Michael. The massive, uplifting but somehow effortless songs connect with the individual in the audience, not least because they have choruses that you can sing along with the first time you’ve heard the song.
“They will let the audience adore them” – Gigwise.
Their summer night gigs outside at Heebie Jeebies in Liverpool seem the ideal setting for a band that not only have the melodies and the energy, but also wear your heart on their sleeve.
