Mark Mulcahy is the former singer of the well regarded and influential Miracle Legion. He also formed the band Polaris and wrote the music for the Nickelodeon show ‘The Adventures of Pete & Pete’. 

Mark’s solo career began with Fathering, an album that received universal praise including Album Of The Month in Uncut and Album Of The Week in The Guardian and featured the track “Hey Self Defeater” which was featured in Nick Hornby’s book 31 Songs.

From there followed the albums Smilesunset and In Pursuit Of Your Happiness, several tours of the UK and Europe, countless radio sessions and huge critical acclaim for both his songwriting prowess and his remarkable voice. In 2008 he quit everything to look after his children following the tragic death of his wife. To assist him through these troubled times many of his long-time friends and fans banded together to record an album of his songs as a tribute to his wife and the result was 2009’s Ciao My Shining Star, featuring the likes of Michael Stipe, Thom Yorke, Frank Black, Mercury Rev, Dinosaur Jr, The National, and many others.

Frank Bango has been quietly going about his business for the last 15 years, making some of the best and most original pop music that almost no one has ever heard. But while Bango has consistently remained further under the radar than just about any other artist of his caliber, he’s never let anonymity go to his head.

Bango and longtime songwriting partner Richy Vesecky cite the golden age of The Brill Building as their primary influence.

To understand, you need only listen to one of the five albums that Bango has released on his own label The Sincere Recording Company, And there’s no better place to start than his latest triumph “Touchy/Feely”. An addictive, hook laden album with irresistible melodies and intelligent, yet heartfelt lyrics. A record created to showcase Bango & Vesecky’s roots in traditional pop craftsmanship.

“Bango & Vesecky’s accessible classic sounding pop songs sound refreshingly familiar, almost as if they came out of another, less frantic and noisy era.”
