Well, it’s another great month for music and for the Ultimate Ears Artists to Watch program. For October, we’ll be featuring the new album from Jack’s Mannequin “People and Things.” For those of you who don’t know, the lead singer and the drive behind Jack’s Mannequin is Andrew McMahon, an Orange County native (born and raised about 15 minutes away from our office). Andrew’s story is unique and touching because after the release of his first album, he was diagnosed with leukemia at the age 23. There are some things that fame and fortune just can’t buy – and health is one of them. Andrew beat his cancer, inspired so many other cancer patients, documented his journey in the movie Dear Jack, and founded the Dear Jack Foundation. He is as much a leader in inspiration as he is in music! For this reason alone, we are grateful to be working with him and his community are thrilled that his long awaited masterpiece, People and Things is out this month.
