The Drop: Andrew McMahon

Just days ahead of the release of his new album, Tilt At The Wind No More (out March 31st), the GRAMMY Museum is thrilled to welcome Andrew McMahon to the Museum’s Rooftop Terrace for a special, intimate conversation about the new album, his creative process, and his career overall, followed by a performance. Attendees will also have an opportunity to enjoy rooftop views and a cash bar prior to the program.   

Over the last two decades, singer-songwriter-pianist Andrew McMahon has successfully experienced musical rebirth many times and has consistently arrived on the other side stronger than ever. The East Coast-born, SoCal-based artist first co-founded the pop-punk outfit Something Corporate in 1998, serving as the group’s singer, pianist, and songwriter and leading the band to major chart success in the early 2000s via the albums Leaving Through The Window (2002) and North (2003). Soon after, McMahon resurfaced with the more personal solo project Jack’s Mannequin, finding success through three studio albums, with the second (The Glass Passenger, 2008) and third (People and Things, 2011) entering the top 10 on the Billboard 200 chart and their debut, Everything In Transit (2005), reaching Gold status. In 2014, McMahon released his debut album under his own name and new moniker, Andrew McMahon in the Wilderness, featuring the breakout top 5 alternative radio singles “Cecilia and the Satellite” and “Fire Escape.” Andrew McMahon in the Wilderness has since released the hook-packed albums Zombies On Broadway (2017) and Upside Down Flowers (2018), amassing over 275 million total streams to date, performing at such marquee festivals as Lollapalooza, Austin City Limits, Riot Fest, and Firefly, and touring alongside the likes of Weezer, Panic! at the Disco, Gavin DeGraw, Allen Stone, and Dashboard Confessional as well as one of McMahon’s idols, Billy Joel. Tilt At The Wind No More, the fourth under his Wilderness moniker and first for Nettwerk, is highlighted by the jubilant radio hit “Stars” and sprawling “Lying On The Hood Of Your Car” as well as “Skywriting,” “VHS,” “Built To Last” and “Nobody Tells You When You’re Young.” McMahon has also sold nearly 2.5 million albums across all of his musical projects, received an Emmy nomination for his work on the NBC show “Smash,” and released his memoir Three Pianos in October 2021, which is also available as an audiobook read by Andrew with special musical sections he exclusively scored for this. Additionally, in 2006, McMahon founded the Dear Jack Foundation after surviving his own battle with Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia (ALL) at the age of 22. The nonprofit charity provides impactful programming that directly benefits adolescent and young adults diagnosed with cancer in order to improve quality of life and create positive health outcomes from treatment to survivorship for patients and their families.
