Americana/alt-country/folk rock/rock – USA
Mike Spine is Seattle based musician, songwriter/singer/guitarist, with respectable presence on the USA and the international scene. With actual one, he has released 11 albums, mostly different among them, which showed numerous spheres of interest of this guitarist and songwriter.
The songs from the actual album were largely written as a counter to an era of hate, corruption, discrimination, and narcissism at the highest levels of US power structures. Accompanied by members of the Underground All Star Band, musically, a combination of several expressive variants is offered, as : Americana, folk rock, alt-country, rock…
The atmosphere of the songs themselves varies from case to case, and considerable emphasis is given to textual message. Finally, I would like to praise Chris Crites, who did a great job with the layout and design of the album cover, as well as Brad Dundas, who did the illustrations on the release.
