Bio

menSana, a power-trio hailing from Indiana, is raw melodic rock. They have created a catchy and truly unique sound, a sound all their own. Their music is a colorful landscape of many peaks and valleys, though still remaining raw powerful rock! It has its heavy moments and its beautiful moments. Their music is VERY catchy but retains integrity and remains original. The sound consists of pounding rock drum beats coupled with a land mass of bass guitar, and guitars playing the most impounding chords possible. This very rock solid root is complimented with beautifully epic guitar overlays, and nicely arranged vocal melodies that are beautiful and positive, but at the same time heart wrenching, aggressive and "to the point".
menSana is the brainchild of lead singer/guitarist Matt McGuyer. A drummer since the age of four, Matt wanted to shed the drummer end of a band and be the front man. After playing the drums in many bands and living in cities like Bloomington, IN, Nashville, TN and Houston, TX, also touring with a national act and gigging in some of the biggest cities in the US., Matt came to realize that good bands do come out of small cities just as easy as they can out of big cities. Matt had just moved back home and wasn't in any bands. He decided this would be a good time to start his own band as a front man (and not a drummer) and start looking for local musicians who shared the same vision. After searching extensively for musicians for a few months in early 2000, to no avail, Matt decided to make a flyer to find an experienced drummer. He got a call from a guy named, Chris Huggins, a drummer from Indianapolis. Chris was an amazing talent naturally who easily picked up on the ideals that Matt had envisioned, and complimented his songs with aggressive, raw, and hard-hitting style. Last but not least, a bass player was needed. Matt then got in touch with an old band mate named Bret Mitchem. Bret, being a great solid bass player who knew how to play and do it VERY well, was the perfect bass player to complement this huge sounding style by way of making the music active under the guitars and also pushing the music harder.
menSana put on an intensely energetic live show. They have played countless numbers of shows and have opened for many national touring acts. They will definitely catch the ears of anyone they are heard by and drop the jaws of anyone that sees them live.
There’s no smoke and mirrors. There’s no gimmicks. menSana is just honest, in your face rock with high attention to melody! Be sure to check these guys out!
