Modern Man began as a solo, recording project in the spring of 2010. With little to no expectations, founder Allen Glenn’s, small project soon evolved into a four piece touring band. After joining forces with then roommate and subsequent drummer, Jeff Perry, Glenn began seeking additional musicians, bringing Brian Draper of Secret Vessels and Jose Davila aboard. As conflicting schedules made performances difficult for Perry, Nikki Calvert of Coma Cinema took his place after substituting during a 2011 summer tour with Coma Cinema. As each member derives from an array of both conflicting and similar musical backgrounds, our ‘genre’ has never really been self-proclaimed and is ultimately determined by the beholder. Simply, we are four friends whose bonds were born through our collaborative music making efforts. None of us knew each other as much more than fellow patrons of local shows, bars, bands, etc., and through our chance meetings, random encounters and undeniable connection, a family has formed. Together, Allen Glenn (vocals, guitar), Brian Draper (guitar), Jose Davila (bass) and Nikki Calvert (drums) are working diligently at playing shows, recording, making merch, promoting, practicing, and the list goes on. Our desire is to continue creating and performing music together while learning new things and meeting new people along the way.
