MEN WHO LISTEN was formed in 2008 by Dan Pokorni on the heels of his solo release, “Guitarscapes.” After top Chicago-area session players signed on, the band started making demos. Later on, Gary Loizzo (Styx’s producer) agreed to come on board behind the console and the MEN WHO LISTEN sound started to take shape -- a sound in which the SONG comes first. Using elements from classic and modern rock, MEN WHO LISTEN is poised to take you a on a musical journey – and the journey has just begun!
In June of 2009, the band released its debut CD and immediately started getting air-play on a number of college and Internet radio stations. In December of 2009, the next phase of MEN WHO LISTEN began when singer Jeff Anthony made his debut on their new single, “Cast Our Love Away.” MEN WHO LISTEN promises to stimulate and stir audiences wherever their songs are heard!
