Greensboro band, Mightier Than Me, are coming off of a big 2018. While making a name for themselves in the NC Triad area, the high-energy alternative rock band has built a reputation for catchy songs laced with lush vocals, searing guitar riffs, raw power, and real emotion. Add to that the work ethic of a veteran band, and it suddenly becomes clear why they earned Rock Band of the Year honors at the Carolina Music Awards in 2017.
Randy Williams, Wes Frank Norman, Sarah Barker and Robert Justin Seawell met on the first day of class at Guilford Technical Community College. After the school’s Ensemble audition, the four immediately realized they were on the same musical page and started working on music. They approached drummer Charlie Fuson to finish their lineup. After a couple of writing sessions, they knew that forming a band was the way to go.
Mightier Than Me has caught the attention of media the world over. The band has been featured in entertainment publications such as Yes! Weekly and Everything Music, have performed on Record Greensboro, Jared & Katie in the Morning on WKZL radio, and Time Warner Cable News, and have taken part in dozens of interviews, podcasts, and other multimedia outlets.
The self-titled debut EP of Mightier Than Me has been played internationally, earning two top 5 singles on indie radio stations in Australia and the United Kingdom, as well as regular airplay on stations in the region. “O.L.E.” and “To Be Determined” are set to be classics. Of the latter, Rebecca Cullen of Stereo Stickman says, "This one in particular could easily create a wave through an array of audiences...a definite highlight of the whole release.” Of the EP itself, she writes, "This new project by Mightier Than Me is one that presents listeners with high levels of physical and emotional energy, as well as impressive musical skills, and brilliant songwriting.” Their EP release show, a highly anticipated event, was the first show to ever sell out the concert space at GTCC’s Center for Creative and Performing Arts in High Point. Seats were removed to make room for the crowd of over 200 spectators.
In November 2018, MTM released the music video for “Big As Life," the first single from the upcoming LP “Information Age”. The pro wrestling themed video, shot at Fire Star Pro Wrestling and featuring NWA Champion The Boogie Woogie Man, was immediately met with thousands of views from every corner of the globe. The second single, “All That’s Left” (release date: March 1, 2019), is the most collaborative song in their growing catalogue. "Information Age” will hit major music distributors in April 18, 2019.
