Man Born Blind

What would it sound like if Jack Johnson met the foo fighters at a party thrown by U2, and Switchfoot were serving the hors d'oeuvres? A little something like Man Born Blind...

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
2007 New Mexico Music Awards winner for Best Packaging and Best Rock-Alternative song ("Safety Net").

"We're about making music that people can relate to," says bassist, Jon Shores when asked to describe the music of Man Born Blind. "Sure, we hope it catches your attention because it sounds interesting to you, but we hope it's the lyrics that ultimately grip you."

According to Man Born Blind's many fans who have seen and heard them play, that very musical "consciousness" is what sets this group's music apart from their peers.

"We're an amalgamation of so many different influences, but ultimately, our songs are stories that that mean something to us and hopefully our listeners," says lead singer Nate Jackson. "We have been playing for well over a year now, and it's not so much about just us the band, but the people, and the power that connect has."

Man Born Blind came into existence in 2005 when singer Nate Jackson and guitarist Darrick Hurst met through mutual friends.

"We'd both played in a variety of different bands, all from different musical styles, and at that point, we were both sorta doing the 'solo-musician' thing," says Darrick. "Sometimes music is just something you do because you feel like you need to... Nate had these awesome ideas for songs, and I was experimenting with all kinds of different musical stuff, so we tried putting it all together, and it just worked."

At this point, Man Born Blind had no steady bass player, and the two knew if the group was ever to go anywhere, that'd have to change. In no time, Darrick was on the phone with Jon Shores, who he'd played in other bands with since high school.

"Ironically, right when I got the call, I was about ready to haul all the bass stuff over to the pawn shop... I figured my bass playing days were pretty much over, but then I get these guys calling me in for an audition outta the blue," says Jon.

Nate says the group "just clicked," and before they knew it, they were getting opportunities to open for big name acts like The Calling and Howie Day.

In early 2006, Man Born Blind completed its lineup with the addition of the versatile drummer, John Romano, whom Darrick and Jon had met at a BBQ.

"Though we all come from very different musical backgrounds, the thing that makes this work — the thing we have in common — is that we make music that means something to us," says drummer John Romano.

"The people we are inspired by the most are the revolutionaries," says Nate. "We look up to the people who've stood to make a difference not only in music, but the world around them."

Based in Albuquerque, NM, Man Born Blind has awed fans with not only their songs, but also their personable concerts and authentic live shows. Man Born Blind released their first self-titled recording in September 2006.
