A few years ago I really liked the band Jack’s Mannequin and listened to them a lot.

For the past few years I kept meaning to get around to checking what they were up to now and then yesterday thanks to Phil of thephilfactor.com I have some great new information. Thanks Phil!

The Phil Factor

Andrew McMahon in the Wilderness is a band, but Andrew McMahon of Orange County, California is also a person. Andrew McMahon was also Jack’s Mannequinbut Andrew McMahon is not a mannequin. He’s a person. Got all that?

If you’re a parent, you know how your kids can’t imagine that you were ever anything but a parent? His song Cecilia And The Satellite, which was hugely popular in 2015, is a song he wrote for his baby daughter, Cecilia, so that some day when she’s old enough to listen, she’ll know who her father was before she was born, but understand that she’s the center of his world now.

Have a great Monday! ~Phil
