Mikey J Releases Indie CD Life’s Road

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Nashua, NH--February 26, 2007--Mikey J (Michael Johnson), is a folk rock performer hailing from New Hampshire. Mikey J is not unlike the rest of us, he is a product of his environment, and calling New England your home has its responsibilities as well as a few idiosyncrasies inherit of the region. Mikey J is a good fit for his surroundings and all of his music and lyrics paint a picture that is very descriptive to the listener.

The new release from Mikey J is Life’s Road and it takes you down his own personal path carved out by his own life and feelings. With a combination of acoustic and electric guitars, understated rhythm sections and just the right amount of keyboards for the additional layer that makes a tune have more depth while pushing along the lyrics, Mikey J and his band make each track a journey through time, past and future.

Good friend and longtime collaborator Duane Carleton is a very important part of the overall equation and outcome of Life’s Road. His experience and talent have become invaluable to Mikey J. Carelton provides timely background vocals and expert musicianship with electric and acoustic guitars, bass, and mandolin.

Tracks such as “Father” are a focus of the artist and his personal struggles with family relationships and “3 Men In A Mirror’ falls right in line after that track as Mikey J sings about himself, his son, and father. This is how a look into the mirror of life can reveal images of all three men and how they all seemingly blend into the same person. This is only apparent if we choose to look at reality. This suggests the similarities of inherited character traits both good and bad that we all have and discover by looking at a parent, child, or inside your own soul.

Mikey J and his music is food for thought and reflection and the way the music is arranged and played gently pushes you to think about what he is trying to say and how it may be applied in your own life. Those that appreciate heartfelt lyrical prose, folk-rock, and good old New England values will find a wealth of inspiration and enjoyment in this music.

Rock Review: Aunt Mary-New Dawn

Release Date: 12th February 2016 Label: Wind-Up Website
Aunt Mary, as a name, somehow suggests an “older” band and it came as no real surprise to find that they are a Norwegian prog band from the 70’s. The band were considered by many to be one of the best prog bands in Norway with their brand of music a mixture of heavy hard rock tunes plus clear indications of a more symphonic nature, although that only really showed itself on their 3rd, and last, studio album, Janus, in 1973. Last that is, until now, with the release of New Dawn. This would appear to be an apt title for a release which follows 24 years after an album of blues covers, released in 1992. 

At their height, Aunt Mary were “up there” with the likes of Deep Purple, Ten Years After, King Crimson, Jethro Tull and many more. After the release of Janus in 1973, the band split up but did a few sporadic appearances, as well as releasing the blues covers album mentioned earlier.

3 years ago, the Norwegian guitar legend and producer, …

New Age Instrumental Review: Anaya Music-AONKI – Gateway of Love (Cosmic New Age Music)

Release Date: February 2, 2018 Label: Anaya Music Website
Around this time a year ago I had the experience of listening to Anaya Music and providing coverage of Eternity.  It was an uplifting experience and a memorable listen as I recall.
Now with February drawing closer AONKI – Gateway of Love (Cosmic New Age Music) will arrive.
Once again, the recording features several exceptional collaborations between Anaya Music and a live virtual symphony orchestra recorded in the heart of Prague, the capital of the Czech republic. The orchestra combines members of the finest ensembles in Prague, including the Czech Philharmonic.
I think they should rename the orchestra to “The Live Spiritual Orchestra.” If you have been exposed to Anaya Music you will understand what that means. If this is your first journey with this music you will find out very quickly. Either way, this is spiritually uplifting music that leaves a smile on your soul. It’s like the term digital footprint, there is an everlasting m…

Jazz Fusion-Rock-Pop-Funk Review: Project Grand Slam-Trippin’

Release Date: June 29, 2018 Label: Cakewalk Records Website
This will be my sixth voyage into the world of Project Grand Slam (PGS). So, what is this experience going to be like this time? I would expect the same great combination of jazz, rock, funk, and pop that I always enjoyed.

Just so you all know PGS is: Robert Miller (bass), Mario Castro (saxophones), Bayden Goyo (keyboards), Joel E. Mateo (drums), Guillermo Barron Rios (percussion), Tristan Clark (guitar) and the beautiful Ms. Ziarra Washington (vocals).

So, now we are Trippin’ into 2018 with PGS. And the first track titled “1972” was like turning on the radio and hearing the Average White Band or Tower of Power. Yes sir, on the AM dial, it came blaring through back in those days. 

The title track is a real gas too. This number has some great sax from Castro and a killer rhythm section courtesy of Miller and Mateo. It shines the spotlight on them clear and bright. Let me tell you, those two are like the dynamic duo, kind of like a p…
