Mike Marino, a Singer/Songwriter, Guitarist. Insightful, Subtle and Explosive his vintage flavored Americana Roots Rock drawls inspiration from the days growing up on a South Jersey farm in the magical era of the 60’s & 70’s. His fire and intensity fueled by the constant erosion of the American Heartland.
Mikes song writing roots are firmly planted in the American Heartland. His journey through American Music
started with his love of the Blues and then migrated to the early West Coast Folk/Country Rock sound of The Byrds, Buffalo Springfield, Flying Burrito Brothers, Stephen Stills/Manassas, CSN&Y, Poco and The Eagles sharing many of the same influences as the more recent Jayhawks & Thorns.
Mike drawls from all of these Blues, Folk & Country influences to create his own unique blend of vintage flavored Americana Rock. “Vintage Rock for a New World”, addressing issues of our time. He typically assembles a full band compliment to record most of his original material he calls his RestlessSoul. As a Solo Singer/Songwriter Mike gravitates somewhere between the styles of Gene Clark, Gram Parsons, Neil Young & Stephen Stills.
For this Album, his third release since 2000, Mike called out all the guns and assembled an All Star line up 12 Players/Singers in all with impressive credentials and more importantly some passionate playing and Harmony Vocals.
Co-Produced by Mike Dugan & Robert Campanell.
If you like the Byrds, CSNY, or just great songwriting to a Vintage 60''s vibe let this album pull you "Out of the Darkness".
Having kicked around the Tri-State music scene for several years playing everything from Solo Folk, with the Philadelphia Songwriters Association, to Classic Rock gigs with various local bands and Blues with Nationally Recognized Blues Man Mike Dugan and The Blues Misson, Mike has honed a style being compared by reviewers to some of Rock''s Royalty. He continued to develop his song writing skills throughout the 1990’s & finally released his debut “Last of the Heartland” in 2000, which received several solid reviews.
Regarding Mike’s 2000 debut “Last of the Heartland” Bryan Klausing-- Assoc. Producer-Acoustic Rainbow/(Poetman Records) wrote: "This CD reminded me of the Band. The Vocals at times were reminiscent to the late great Rick Danco, & the Roots Rock instrumentation were great!"
Mikes follow up to “Last of the Heartland” was his 2004 release “Another World”
National Independent Reviewer Keith “MuzikMan” Hannaleck wrote:
“These are the words of poet/sage with a guitar; like a combination of CSNY and Lou Reed, heartfelt and to the point with a real world edge to it all. The combination of Rock, Blues, Americana, Roots & Poetry are an effective vehicle for making his point known & clearly understood, in the end the mission is accomplished and that is a victory for Mike Marino and the listener”
His vintage brand Rock, addressing issues of our time, and poetic prowess reaffirms the role of the American Singer/Songwriter. Mikes dedication to this genre of music is unyielding. The combination of Blues, Folk-Inspired Rock, solid song writing & live delivery are the components of his success.
