Man of the Year used to be Lolly, a name that is well-known to Northwest pop rockers; Lolly was voted one of the Northwest's best bands of 1999. The band released their first album under their new name in 2000, entitled The Future Is Not Now. Tony Lash of the Dandy Warhols produced the band's debut album, which has generated two local Portland area hits, "Silver Dollar" and "Hovercraft." In late 2000 and early 2001, Man of the Year toured the West Coast, playing several small venues. They plan on a country-wide tour to begin in early 2002. Man of the Year began as bassist Kelly Simmons, drummer Lance Krieter, and guitarist/vocalist Tod Morrissey. Keyboardist Brenna Sheridan joined the band after the album was recorded. The band signed with Loveless Records in 2000. Their music has been featured on the television show Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and Man of the Year themselves appeared on the show in October of 2001.
