New Music: Andrew McMahon "High Dive" - Amy's Pick Of The Week

For a guy who has been through all of the ups and downs of life in just 33 short years, he has certainly come out on top.  He's a glass half full kind of guy and his positive attitude, drive and music shows it. I suppose we don't just adore him for his musical contributions, but he is an example of how us music fans can fall in love with the whole package.

Andrew began playing piano at age 9, he played his school assemblies etc until he got an actual record contract while attending high school in California.  Then when he was just 22 years old he was diagnosed with leukemia shaping his life from that moment forward.  He has raised over half a million dollars for the Dear Jack Foundation which he created so that he could give back and help those in need.

We at Radio 92,9 so enjoy his music, his message and his incredibly kind nature. And his perseverance speaks volumes just like his song lyrics. He really is the whole package.

"You dance with your headphones on

and I could watch you all night long

dancing to someone else's song".     - From "High Dive"
