Michigan Curve present twelve self penned, powerful, hand crafted blues for today.
“The objective was to mix it up” says Mike, “to present a big stylistic range, to feel it, to have fun and, sound like us. The album was recorded at The Woodshop by Mighty Zak Cohen, who effectively captured the band’s urgency and dynamism. ”They gave me more than I needed, they’re a blues band from another place, not copyist and, they mean it.”
The combination of Mike’s thirty years of playing the blues in some of Scotland’s lower end licensed premises, coupled with Mr. Clements song writing talent creates and delivers these “songs from the journey”, stand alone tales, some poignant, some soulful, some funny.
“If you’re gonna make a contribution” says Mike, “you got to have a couple of things, you got to own it and, have the support of good musicians, like I did, just listen, you don’t need to be faster and louder, Ken and Andre did a great job”.
