About mike by name

In the artist’s words: Describe one of your earliest musical memories in detail. Hearing Neil Young's "Hey Hey My My" off his album Live Rust as a child. The guitar intro was so foreboding in its detuned aggressive passion. I knew I needed to learn what instrument made that sound. This started me on the path to electric guitar. Find a song of yours on Apple Music that you love and tell us what makes it special. Tell us why you chose this song. “Where Is the Magic?” This was the first song I wrote for this EP. Memories at the drum kit, finding the groove amidst the bass line was a fine moment. I was super influenced by Curtis Mayfield's vibe on this and I wanted to show influence but do it in my own way.
