Hi there... Im Mick
My album is a bit diverse. From rock to something resembling bent-up country to acoustic. I like alot of styles, so when it came to writing a few tracks, it just sort of blurted into a number of directions. My album ranges from a blend of Steve Morse and Steve Lukather to Larry Carlton/ Lee Ritenour through to ???
I hope it contributes to someones day, as a number of the tracks have been recorded at special times. Get Well Al was for a mate with Leukemia, who finally lost his battle. Drama School was about the mayhem on a Sunday morning getting my daughter to Drama School, after very late gigging. June was about the most wonderful and special person I befrended so long ago. She is just like a big sister and has been a great influence to my wife and kids, let alone me!
Whilst everything on my album is instrumental, it all goes somewhere, and hopefully is more than just a bunch of blur.
Please enjoy and I look forward to producing more!
PS. For any of you guitar pickers out there, I did not use any harmonisers on the album. All harmonies are played on. I used predominantly a Mesa Boogie and the distortions of the amp, strats with emg pickups (Fenders and a couple of custom made, thanks Russ), a custom shop Les Paul, A Tommy Emmanuel Maton acoustic, A Yamaha apx10n Nylon string electric, lexicon reverb & delays, and a heap of coffee. See ya!
