    1. “Tired of all the headlines, like a thousand cuts that no one ever sees.”

      Subtle reminders that pack a punch.

      I’m excited that I can stream and download your tunes. Thanks for sharing.

  1. Val, a world tour is in the works for 2014-2015. I don’t want to say too much at this point, but it will begin and end here in Ottawa, and involve at least one gig, maybe more. Details to follow.

  2. The irony of your site/album launch is that we (Colleen, Grace, Jake and I) were grooving through a snapshot of your musical evolution last night – songs from Can You Do This?, Shaken Not Stirred, Where We Are and I Hate Folk Singers were played in our kitchen over wine, laughs and stories (not sure how much the kids had to drink but it sure seemed like the wine went fast). Many great memories, special moments and wonderful people…..and your songs were at the core of some of the best years of our lives. Thanks Mike. Love, The Willisons.

    1. Wow, you Willisons sure know how to make a guy’s day – but we already knew that. Time for a get-together…. Love right back at you, Mike

  3. Awesome work Mike! A new-fangled way to receive the record, but at least my internet did not have frustrating shrink-wrap o it!

  4. Very cool Mike. Sound and quality is fantastic…enjoyed it very much. Great additions to my playlist(s).
    Keep up the great work and I’m looking forward to the tour ;).

  5. Thanks for these, Mike. It’s so great to hear your voice again. Love the intimacy and richness in your tone in “Scene of the Crime” and “Unconfirmed Reports” in particular. It’s like I’m being wrapped up in a warm blanket, slowly, except it’s kind of a sad blanket. A sad blanket that makes me happy.

  6. Heh Mike, on first listen – brilliant as usual. It had such an effect on me that I dreamt I was watching you playing “Run” in your studio while someone was downstairs making us Butter Chicken. It doesn’t get any better than that. Oh, and Lenny Kravitz was on drums. (Heh – it’s my dream.)
    I shall have a more fulsome listen this weekend. Congratulations.

  7. Mike..I think there are people who would be also be interested in your production skills..
    and The Scene of…featured as the crime unfolds..not quite in full cinematic view..

  8. Hey mike
    Just finished running through the collection on a sunny Sunday morning. Really enjoyed them. Solid set. Wounded creation is my personal fave. It was nice running into you this summer. Wasn’t able to set up a visit, but maybe some time next summer.

  9. I have only listened to the first three songs so far, but I can tell that these songs are something I would listen to while doing something creative, like drawing or painting
