The Return of PMP

   Many of you know our story or have been fans for a long time. About five years ago, PMP decided to take a break from the music scene. Some of us pursued new careers, and others started families. Either way, it was nice to stop the non-stop touring, preparing for shows, practice, recording new music, and writing while our families and children suffered. After some time, something happened. We are all still not sure what, but our music started spreading all over the world in a cascading effect that has continued to this day. As things got bigger, we talked and decided it was time to start creating new music. Unfortunately, our lives and schedules were not what they once were, but we decided to start writing some tunes and record them. With our lives and schedules now, months can go by without all four of us being in the same room at the same time. Because Dustin records our music, we can write and record at our own pace regardless of our random schedules. This enables us to continue creating new material. Since we stopped performing, even the way people listen to music has changed. Because of this, we decided it would be best to put ALL our effort into every song to create thoughtful, complex music that lives up to the PMP name. Rather than blowing through the production of an album, we decided it would be best to fully focus and create a couple of songs at a time and release more quality material, more frequently. That being said, we have put a ton of work into the new songs we are releasing, and we are very proud of them. This will be a new beginning for Poor Man's Poison. We are not able to play shows for the time being, given our very random and opposite schedules, but we will do our best to put out quality music. If, by chance, that changes in the future, we will be sure to spread that word to the fullest extent. Thank you all for your patience and support!

Sincerely, 

Poor Man’s Poison

    I discovered your music about 6 months ago while listening to some Lost Dog Street Band and Trampled by Turtles. You have quickly become my favorite band and I hope that someday I can see you play live. Thank you for the fantastic music and I hope you are all doing well!

    I found you guys through Pandora and really enjoyed your music. I’ve since purchased 3 albums with Providence being my favorite. My favorite song is Father’s Day. I really feel that song. Any new music would be much appreciated. I pray y’all stay blessed in whatever y’all’s future holds.

    So there is a large group of people in Ohio that want to see you guys play so badly. Nelson Ledges Quarry Park NEEDS PMP to grace its stage.

    I know you guys from high school, I grew up in Hanford. So I’ve known your music for a long time. But what blows my mind is that I live in central Oregon now and I was in a thrift store the other day and this guy walked past me listening to your songs loudly on his headphones! Good music spreads fast :) welcome back to the music world!

    New song/video is top notch, fantastic, amazing. Well written, performed, and full of soul and depth. Love the tightness and grit. My wifey loves your music, I got her all of your recordings last Christmas. Just got her a shirt for this one. Please please please expand your merch catalog I wouldn't mind getting one of those green logos shirts. They would be dope to get a long sleeves with that logo down the side Play the PMP on the chest. Stickers, beer koozies, somethin'. My wife and our friends are dying to see you live Man that would be the coolest jam. Tower theaters pretty dope to play at, just saying...

    Hey, I just found you on Google Play Music, through recommendations based on The Devil Makes Three and Lost Dog Street Band. Glad that you guys are making music and recording, and creatively making it happen in spite of real life schedules. New fan vote to keep it up!

    Wow.....just simply, wow. I too was caught by the musical genius when this fortunately graced my presence via Pandora and have never been so happy I found musical talent like this. Without question, PMP has become my all time favorite band and am astonished the lack of national attention this band SHOULD have yet lacks. You gentlemen have permanently been placed on my bucket list of bands I ABSOLUTELY MUST see live before I leave this earth, and hope against hope that if you make it even remotely close to Rochester NY ( hell I would travel to Ohio if that helps the posters above convince you to come: ) ) just to see you. Never been so excited for new material in my 51 years on this earth! Keep em coming!

    Just want to say that I love your music. i found you guys earlier in 2019. I just cant get enough of it. i also really appreciate "A place for friends." i losty brother almost a year ago and a place for friends has really helped me out a lot with dealing with that. it puts into words a lot of the things i want to say. its a beautiful song that really makes me respect the life that my brother lived and the time i had with him. so thank you for that.

    I am so excited to hear you guys are coming back! I found your music a few years back and immediately blew me away. I’m glad you guys pursued the lives that you wanted, because that’s the most important thing. No matter how you make it, or how long it takes to make, I’ll eagerly await what you create. Thank you guys!

    Like many folks who have posted here, I discovered your music through Pandora (the "Devil Makes Three" station -- another great undiscovered band!). There are only two bands that I've heard in my 45 years of loving music that hooked me from the first 30 seconds of the first song, and you guys are one of them. Sucks that I discovered you too late to see a live show, but I'm very excited that you are putting out new music and hoping that you may tour again someday.

    What happened to Russian Money? I love everything Ryan sings and this band was wiped off the face of the earth seemingly overnight. I found a second hand CD on amazon and before I could buy it, it was gone. I want to spend money on you guys - give me a chance!

    Great Job with the new stuff!!! Tommy, that Mandolin!!!!!!!!!! You guys always throw it down from the heart and soul and do it right.... Gotta be honest.... My Cousin Doug would be very happy to see you guys busting out again. We lost Doug on March 9th 2020. But, I know, from being part of your beggining that he is extremely proud and is no longer with us to say it so i will for him. You guys may remember me as the drummer for his band and also his closest family relative. I miss hanging out with you guysm miss the Carlton St. Block parties and the old van. I cant wait to hear more. If you want to put some Cajon or other Acoustic percussion on any upcoming cuts let me know. My family and Dougs family will continue to support and promote the best local band ever to come out of the central valley!!!! You have my word.

    I am overwhelmed with emotion that you guys are making music again. I first saw your band in Avila Beach, CA about 10 years ago and was blown away by your music. It was like a delicious musical buffet for my ears hearing you live. Your band is amazingly talented with your instruments and voices and creative and meaningful songs. After that live seaside performance, I got all your albums and continued listening to your music. I was saddened when I found out your band took a break but was deeply grateful for the songs you already gifted to the world. So today, when I looked your band up again I was extremely surprised and excited that you are making new music again! There is a reason why people around the world listen to your music - you guys are extremely talented, unique, and creative. Thanks again for your music and I would selfishly love to hear you guys live again!

    You guys are amazing! I heard you guys on Pandora randomly a few month ago and have been hooked. I normally don't listen to this style of music so you have a crossover fan. Everyone should listen to your songs. I have so many favorites but the one that I've been listening to the most is Georgia Law Man which is corresponding with the show I'm watching called Justified that came out a couple years ago (it's on Hulu and you should definitely check it out if you haven't seen it yet). It has bad guys and U.S. Marshall's and the song reminds me of two of the characters. Love it!
