Mike Starts A Label, Signs The Panderers

December 11, 2007

Mike Doughty has formed his own independent microlabel, Snack Bar, and will release Hotshot’s Boy, the debut EP by The Panderers, in early March. The Panderers are the project of Indiana singer-songwriter Scott Wynn; Pete McNeal (drummer for Mike Doughty’s Band) co-produced the EP with Dave Wilder (bassist for Macy Gray and Liz Phair, among others). Hotshot’s Boy will be available via the iTunes Music Store and other digital retailers, and as a CD at The Panderers’ live performances. Buy it now: Amazon

Mike says, “I was looking for a band to sign to my new microlabel, and I loved Scott’s sound when Pete played the record for me—it’s like Quentin Tarantino at a hoedown.”

The Panderers will support all dates on Mike Doughty’s March-April 2008 tour, with Wynn backed by McNeal and Doughty’s bassist, Andrew “Scrap” Livingston. tour dates
