The Supposed So started in 2009 as a recording vehicle for the songs of Michael McGuire. Influenced by a wide range of artists (from Buddy Holly to Okkervil River) The Supposed So couples thoughtful, literate lyrics with new-folk and 60s pop music tendencies and lays it all bare through layered vocals over a textured backdrop of acoustic guitars, keys, and harmonica. The arrangements do much to both calm and enhance the absent minded cohesion to form song after song of relative imperfection.
Equal parts Merseybeat, the Band, and the first wave of Saddle Creek Records.
A beautiful song with powerful lyrics. Congratulations on a job well done to the Supposed So!!!
