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.
