Aggressively catchy melodies pair with soul-filled lyrics in MESSMAKER’s refreshing take on indie rock. Lighting up stages as a power duo, musical architect Michael McFarland (he/him) and versatile percussionist Freja McNeal (she/her) bring the energy of an arena show to every performance. Garnering comparisons to acts such as The Band CAMINO, The Maine, and All Time Low, McFarland’s songwriting is frank, expressive, and clever, and joined by McNeal the Cleveland, Ohio-based act elevates the material on stage with a seemingly inexhaustible energy. Showing a maturity of style and sound that has developed through years of travel, relationships, heartbreaks, and reinventions, MESSMAKER’s music contains talent, passion, and lyrics that come from the heart. The result? A big, bright, and lovestruck slice of anthemic indie rock.

Following their debut EP “Through This Fire”, MESSMAKER has released a series of singles, covers, and collaborations, working with Nate Saggio & Jim Stewart (Welshly Arms, The Happy Fits), and maintained a relentless performance schedule including regional & national tours.
