Andrew McMahon: Turning 30 and Making a Difference

Posted by - 03:05 PM on 11/12/12
Andrew McMahon wrote an entry for Huffington Post on his new found 30-somethings.
From the BlogBy the title of this piece you might assume it is a cynical rant about the dissolution of the modern music business and my place in it. Fear not, it is anything but. I am living proof that even in its state of disrepair, the ability for a unique voice to be heard in this business still exists. If you are reading this you probably fall in one of three categories: a fan who followed a link from one of my web portals; a curious onlooker who vaguely recognizes the name on the byline, but is not quite sure why; or you are scratching your head altogether as to who I am and why the Huffington Post thought me worthy of this guest blog. The reality is -- I am a lot of things. I am a singer/songwriter who has quietly sold over 1,000,000 albums despite never having a big song on radio, in a car commercial, or an episode of Grey's Anatomy for that matter. I am also a cancer survivor, a fact that makes me even more thankful for the crazy career I have been blessed with.

For all he's done with the DJF (not to mention his music to boot), this man is a hero.
