"Mike is a great songwriter and a one of my favorites to go see. There is a genuineness to his music that resonates with me. I’ve listened to this album,Good Company, at great length. There’s a lot to love here.
I think my favorite on this album is “Milk this Ride” but they are all great. Check out “Tommy the Tour bus Driver”
