About

Five Pound Snap have been friends since middle school. They grew up together around Royal Oak and Clawson and played together at Kimball High School in the jazz and concert bands and basically served as the high school’s house band for the choir concerts. Five Pound Snap is defiant of categorization, trying different genres, and not getting tied up with any gimmick or image.

Singer-guitarist Michael O’Brien, keyboardist Scott Ryan, drummer Alex Niemi and bassist Gwen MacPhee can tackle a heavy rock tune and change it into a tender indie-Americana ballad. They can meld funk with psych pop, or take on a hip-hop beat and set to a jazzy organ finding ways to inject bits and pieces of these genres into their sound without sounding cluttered.
