An interview with a musician in back-to-back weeks! What's with this craziness? Glad you asked. The song that TINO and I collaborated on is available tomorrow, Tuesday 14th July, on all streaming services. I figured this would be a good…
Mike Bankhead is a bassist and songwriter who grew up in Xenia, Ohio. He released his debut album, Echo in the Crevices, in the summer of 2017. That album displayed his appreciation for crunchy guitar, occasional dissonance, and hooks. For the songs on the split album Defacing the Moon, the distorted guitars take a back seat to diverse instrumentation featuring piano, but also including synth, violin, and accordion. The lyrics are honest and somewhat confessional, being inspired by lived experiences: watching a parent suffer through health problems, facing self-doubt, dealing with depression, speaking to a loved friend.
Mike's second solo full-length album is coming to you in 2020.
