The Classics – Digital
You get Mike’s first 3 CDs, studio recordings of Mike and his band doing his acoustic rock/folk/rural songs. Lots of great acoustic and electric guitar work, infectious vibes, strong songs.
Mike’s first big CD! Recorded with all-star studio players Jerry Douglas, Ray Flacke, Paul Franklin (Dire Straits), David Hungate (Toto, Boz Scaggs), Larrie Londin (Journey, Elvis, Beach Boys), and a host of others.
Features “Scarlet O’hara,” “One Bad Decision,” “Sunshine,” and “Country Cool” (the song that got Mike his Sony publishing deal).
Rootsy, raw, acoustic ROCK; Produced by Dave Perkins. Great electric and acoustic guitar work on energetic, relationship reckoning, celebratory and soul-searching songs.
Features the sweet, Willy Porter co-write, “Watercolor,” the haunting “Black Horses” (the skillfully worded child-like dream of a sex-abused sister), “Under The Sunset Moon” – a rock rendering of a wild story south of the border, and the one Mike performs most often today, “I Find My Strength In You.”
Acoustic rock with an R&B back beat. Produced by Dave Huff. Songs ranging from existential ponderings like “That’s Up To Me” and “Truth In Contradiction” – to real love celebrated in “I Love You Like That” – to love betrayed “I Kinda Like The Rain,” to a bluesy rendition of the Box Tops’ “The Letter,” where Mike is joined by original Box Tops guitarist, Gary Talley. It also features “Valentine,” a hit for Renee Stewart in Australia. Better Days and Unstoppable contain many co-writes with hit song crafter, Tom Kimmel.
