An earnest attempt to help Chicago shine brighter on those summer playlists, 60625 (Deluxe Edition) is available everywhere and features Justin Howard on tenor banjo, Brian Wilkie of the Hoyle Brothers on pedal steel guitar, original artwork by Benjamin Ezra, and three live tracks recorded by Jason Tallungan at Dark Matter Coffee. Thanks! -Mike

Newly revised, Bandcamp now features a handful of exclusive tracks not found anywhere else, including the previously unreleased recording of 'She Got the Means' from 2008, written by Benjamin Ezra, the tallest Hoosier I know. Stream or purchase to your heart's content.
Click here to learn more about Ben's art and hear him play a few songs during his August 2019 WGN Nocturnal Journal interview. It's a great listen, and you'll learn a thing or two about Chicago via his Ezra Street Level masterpiece. Enjoy! -Mike

Welcome. Nine years since last debuting new music, '60625' is now available everywhere.
To those hoping for more content on this website, it will come slowly. Currently giving focus and time to practicing/recording a collection of new songs, release date TBD. In the meantime, check out the 34 songs and 40-something videos I've posted on Bandcamp, Spotify, YouTube, Instagram, iTunes, Amazon Music, and Facebook within the last six months.
If you enjoy the music, please consider sharing it with your people. As John Davey reminds us, "These songs we sing, we were never meant to hide." Be well. -Mike
