Country singer, Mike Lounibos, has just completed his new CD, PLANET CALIFORNIA. Mike recorded his new project in Nashville, Tennessee, with producer Greg Perkins. Greg is a highly respected producer and musician in Nashville, and has been instrumental in helping launch the careers of superstars Gretchen Wilson, Rascal Flats, and has performed with other renowned artists such as Big and Rich, Tammy Wynette, Clint Black, Shelly West, David Frezell, Dottie West and many others.
Greg, will now focus his attention on shopping Mike, and the “Planet California” project for a major record deal. In Greg’s own words, “this is one of the most exciting projects I’ve ever produced and Mike is a major talent.”
The musicians on the record have played on a huge number of classic hits in several genres of music.
SHANE KEISTER – Piano & Keyboards - Elvis Presley, Kenny Rogers, Michael Johnson, Celine Dion, Johnny Cash, Jimmy Buffet, Lionel Richie, Randy Travis, David Allen Coe, Clint Black, Amy Grant, Joe Nichols, Emmylou Harris, Conway Twitty, Crystal Gayle, Lou Rawls, George Jones, Olivia Newton-John, & many others.
CHRIS WOOD – Drums - has performed with Paul McCartney, Willie Nelson, Vince Gill, Amy Grant, Josh Gracin, Avril Levigne,
DARIN FAVORITE – Electric & acoustic guitar – Currently band leader for Pam Tillis, and has performed with Shania Twain, Patty Loveless among others…
DAVID HUNGATE - Bassist David Hungate is best known for his six years with the slick pop-rock/arena rock super group Toto. Some of the other artists he has recorded for and performed with range from Boz Scaggs to Seals & Crofts to gospel favorite Andrae Crouch to country-pop star Dolly Parton. Other artists include Bryan Adams, Gladys Knight, the Manhattan Transfer, Judy Collins, Neil Sedaka, Barbra Streisand, Olivia Newton-John, George Jones, Glen Campbell, Lacy J. Dalton, Lorrie Morgan, Conway Twitty, Barbara Mandrell, George Strait, Tanya Tucker and Reba McEntire.
Mike co-wrote all 12 songs and “Planet California” is filled with original songs that will make you smile, laugh, cry, dance and reminisce. Songs about where we''ve all been... His vocal style is unique and emotional but also excels at singing the crazy contemporary up-tempo party song. But Mike will be the first to tell you he has a knack and deep seated desire for writing story songs - the hallmark of traditional country music. Talented local singer–songwriter, BILL HARRIS from Santa Rosa, co-penned 9 of the songs with Mike and contributed some vital creative production assistance.
Mike writes and sings country, but his songs can cross over into other genres as well. He grew up in Northern California, but has spent many years honing his musical skills in Nashville. Since mid-1995 Mike has split the year up residing in both Sonoma and Nashville; driven by a passion to become an accomplished songwriter. Then as he saw some of his early friends get their Artist deals, Mike''s journey to become a recording artist began.
In 2002, Mike released his first CD, FULL TANK OF LOVE, in Europe on the Comstock label. Then after receiving critical acclaim in Europe, Mike starting performing consistently around Northern California. First primarily as a singer songwriter and then 2 full years with his first country band River Run.
Now, with plenty of shows and plenty of years paying his dues, under his belt, Mike''s talent is finally being noticed. Mike, was thrilled when Greg Perkins chose to work with him knowing that Greg had recorded and performed with such artists as Gretchen Wilson, Big and Rich, Tammy Wynette and many others. Mike is also honored to have co-written songs on his new CD with some of Nashville''s established hit songwriters and some rising stars.
Mike grew up listening to a wide variety of artists and groups like Alabama, Kenny Rogers, James Taylor, The Doobie Brothers, The Eagles, Al Jareau and Lynyrd Skynyrd, George Strait, Alan Jackson, Randy Travis, Tim McGraw, Clint Black and Diamond Rio. You''ll find their influences in his music for sure! Mike’s hobbies include fishing, camping, watching westerns, bowling and watching his kids play sports.
Mike has had several independent artists record his songs, and is often a featured writer on various projects produced by Joe Smith (Back Street Boys, In Sync, Mariah Carey). Mike has had several songs place on hold by major artists, but is still working hard to score that big radio hit as a writer. If all goes well he’ll do it as a successful country artist,
