Man On Earth
Bio: (Taken from Man On Earth's MySpace page)
MAN ON EARTH describes their sound as 'Eclectic, experimental rock based music with a commercial accessibility' All Music Guide takes it a bit further - "melodic, post-Britpop sensibility with sharper-edged American guitar muscle, then tops it off with thoughtful lyrics. Surprisingly mature and far-reaching, the band is really too eclectic to simplify with easy comparisons."
MAN ON EARTH was formed in New York City by lead singer Steven Nathan shortly after recording the bands debut album in his bedroom studio. The band is rounded out by Alex Polaris (Guitar, Keyboards) Dave (Drums) & Alex Goumas (Bass).
Three years after the release of their critically acclaimed debut album, MAN ON EARTH is back with 'The Time Spent Wondering', produced by Grammy winning producer & mixer, Ken Lewis (Lenny Kravitz, Beastie Boys, Fall Out Boy, Kanye West). The album contains guest appearances as diverse as the band's music. The legendary Dr. Fink, iconic keyboardist of Prince & The Revolution as well as Stephen Pearcy, the voice of the mega-platinum arena rock band RATT, have come on board to lend their talents and support to this ambitious project.
MAN ON EARTH's strong 'do-it yourself' ethic and non-stop hard work has garnered them a large amount of recognition and success over the past 3 years. Entirely on their own, the band has had their videos played on Much Music, been spun on over 300 radio stations, featured in film & TV, booked nationwide tours, and directed their own music videos. Shortly after the release of their first album MAN ON EARTH also won the ears of Grammy winning producer Ken Lewis who began working with the band on the songs that have become 'The Time Spent Wondering'.
'The Time Spent Wondering's first single 'all we want' has already gotten a head start this fall from Alternative rock station KACV in Amarillo TX. The song instantly generated phones and within a month it became the 1 most requested song on the station. FMQB declared 'All We Want' a Best Bet pick of the week and a growing number of prominent stations across the country have begun spinning the song as well. The video for 'All We Want' was directed by the band who encouraged fans from around the world to submit videos of themselves with signs explaining their dreams and goals. The outcome was truly inspiring and the video has had a huge response online. In addition pre sales for the album through an exclusive deal with smartpunk.com saw the album debut 8 in their top 100! MAN ON EARTH was also recently named one of the top 20 most popular alternative bands in NYC by the Deli Magazine.
