Biography

There is more than one artist with this name:

1) Fireworks is a band from Detroit, Michigan consisting of David Mackinder, Tymm Rengers, Chris Mojan, Kyle O’Neil, and Brett Jones. They are a group of individuals creating a sound with enough quality to keep your little sister’s attention, and enough to rid them of “guilty pleasure” status. Hailing from stereotypically suburban metro Detroit, Fireworks is comprised of five electric personalities with endless influences. Together they create a unique blend of “infectious, well-written with an undeniable sense of melody. ” They are currently signed to Triple Crown Records and Run For Cover Records.

2) Fireworks was an early ’90s garage rock band from Dallas, Texas, that consisted of: Darin Lin Wood (Blacktop, black snakes, Red Devils, Jackknife, ’68 Comeback and Cat Fur), James Arthur (Necessary Evils, AAAA New Memphis Legs, A Feast of Snakes, Viva L’American Death Ray Music, CC Riders and Golden Boys) and Janet Walker (Blacktop and Cat Fur).

3) Fireworks is a christian poprock band from the 70’s/80’s. Fireworks started as a vocal trio with Marty McCall, Gary Pigg and Gwen Moore singing backup vocals on songs by B.J. Thomas and Amy Grant. In 1977 they released their debut on Myrrh Records with a pop/adult contemporary sound, but switched to a more rock-infused sound when they changed record labels to MCA. Marty McCall went on to be a part of the popular vocal group First Call. Their pre-MCA second album, Shatter The Darkness, is considered by some to be their high musical watermark.

    Was listening to an interview with Dave and I found this interesting - he writes about 25% of the lyrics, while Chris and Brett are the main contributors. Dave, however, records all of the guitar parts and writes pretty much all of the music. They are such a cohesive band that I wouldn't have guessed that was the case, but I think it's cool. Also, Oh Common Life is still my favorite album I've heard this year.

    I can dig it. I can't see why people think it's different though. To me, the songs sound like they could have been lifted right from Gospel.

    "Oh, Common Life" is pretty good. Different though.

    I guess I'm in the minority as I didn't really care for Gospel all that much. I love the first album and I'm loving the new album more and more every time I listen to it.

    The new album is just different from their previous works;being Gospel one of my favorite albums of all time,I guess I'll need some more listens to really get into Oh,Common Life.

    Think the new album is a grower, not hitting me as hard as the first two did after one play through.

    I have honestly never really been into Fireworks very much, but the new album is pretty cool

    New album is solid through and through, but after 1 listen isn't up to the standard of Gospel (though what really is). That said, there's not a bad song on here, it's like a 7.5-8/10.
