ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"I want to make windows down music."

From the beginning 23 year old singer-songwritter Mike Dunn's intention was to make music that would make people want to step outside, get in their cars, and drive. In early 2006 he stepped in to Marigolds and Monsters Studio in Atlanta, Georgia with engineer Matt Malpass and producer Louis DeFabrizio to achieve that goal with his experienced backing band The Kings of New England. After 5 long days they emerged with a fine peice of honest rock n' roll entitled "The Edge of America".

It all started with a little encouragement. Although, Mike Dunn has been in a number of bands through his young career he had never been showcased as a frontman. In late 2005 Mike began recording demos under the name Palomino. Once confident enough in these demos he brought them to Louis DeFabrizio (Gasoline Heart, The Kick). DeFabrizio immediately found potential in the tracks and took on the project as both a experienced player and accomplished producer.

"I looked up to Lou, still do." says Mike. "I wanted to do something with some heart, with some soul, with some energy, something real that could acctually mean something to people." Drawing on influences from Bruce Springsteen, Tom Petty, Paul Westerberg, and Bob Dylan, Mike eventually came out with a combination that is completely his own.

"At the end of the day, the song is the most important thing." Mike Dunn and the Kings of New England make music that is distinctly American and distinctly part of an emerging crew of honest rock n' roll bands from their area, including DeFabrizio's own Gasoline Heart. Although this is just the beginning of the road for Mike Dunn and the Kings of New England they bring a confidence in their musicianship to the stage that is rarely seen by bands twice their age and energy to match. With the release of their debut E.P., The Edge of America, this spring Mike and the Kings have a lot to look forward to. Enjoy the ride.
