After his hard-working punk-pop quintet Something Corporate decided to take a break in the summer of 2004, Andrew McMahon found himself writing a batch of confessional piano-driven songs that explored his return home to Orange County and his attempt to reconnect with the people he had alienated when he left to tour with Something Corporate. With the help of several musician friends (which included producer Jim Wirt and Mötley Crüe's Tommy Lee), McMahon began recording Everything in Transit under the moniker Jack's Mannequin. Since then, McMahon has gone on to release one other studio album with Jack's Mannequin titled The Glass Passenger, toured with the likes of The Fray and Weezer, released the documentary "Dear Jack" which followed his treatment and recovery from leukemia, and is now prepping to release People and Things, his third studio album (Fall 2011).
