Poor Mans Poison was formed in 2009 almost by accident in Hanford, California.

Dustin Medeiros, Ryan Hakker, Mike Jacobs and Tommy McCarthy make up the original members. All members except Mike Jacobs hailed from the edgy, guitar driven progressive rock band Done For Good. When DFG dissolved after one masterfully executed album “The Cycle”, the members parted ways. During that time Ryan began writing acoustic songs to pass the time. Largely influenced by folk and bluegrass groups such as The Devil Makes Three and Splitlip Rayfield, he began structuring songs. Within a few months Ryan recorded those tracks with Dustin engineering in the studio.
