MITM released his first album titled, Now Or Never in July of 2006. Now Or Never contains 17 songs of alternative/indie rock filled with hushed vocals of intriguing lyrics over a mixture of melodic acoustic guitars and haunting piano tunes. MITM has been greatly influenced by many bands and artists across a variety of genres from grunge to folk rock. MITM continues to delve into the creative side of the art of music as well as hinting at the emotional side of things through his distinct sound. MITM is currently playing in local coffee shops and open mic nights while writing new material for an upcoming album, which has not yet been titled.

all songs written and performed by brad burns (guitar, keys, kalimba, percussion, vocals)

musical influences: modest mouse, chris cornell, interpol, j. mascis, dredg, elliot, scott weiland, strung out, neil young, deftones, hum, grade, the beatles, smashing pumpkins, led zeppelin, lifetime…

...through these influences and inspirations within this world things happen...

...sometimes humans stir within themselves a tendency to generate something real through a personal method bringing a new creation into existence. this process soon evolves and becomes ritualistic over time.....what you hear is the result of my existence and tendencies as a human being.

"maker in the mist" comes from the idea where one can create something out of nothing and become "a maker." one often does so in an unidentified manner until he or she appears through a clouded view or "mist."

**CD includes 8 page full color booklet with artwork and lyrics**

Chad Jordan

Maker in the Mist - "Now or Never"
"A delightful collection of acoustic songs featuring a somber, yet mellodic guitar style and vocals reminiscent of Scott Weiland and Thurston Moore. "Now or Never" is a breath of fresh air, leaving the listener gasping for more."

Jayna Boylan

The greatest male vocalist/guitarist since Thom Yorke went solo.
I am so proud to have such a talented friend. I gave them as gifts to my most challenging musically atuned friends. You are so smokey, and gentle...I didn't expect it. I especially love something like you.


interesting singer songwriter indie rock, lyrical imagery, melodic charms

The third song titled Finest Hour could easily appeal to fans of either singer-songwriter type material or indie rock. In talking about the melody, the music is good in both the verses and the choruses. There are subtle melodic charms, but mostly relies on mood to engage the listener. There is good sectional contrast within the structure of the song. It is interesting the way you break up the structure with unexpected rythmic shifts. The lyrics are too abstract and the vocals are very expressive and help to sell the song. The lyrical imagery seems very personal, but I must admit, I have no idea what the song is about.

I'm hearing this fine song first thing in the morning, but I wish I was actually hearing it late at night. The sparseness of the arrangement, your hushed vocal approach, and the intimate nature of the lyrical imagery all seem geared towards a late night listening experience. The fact that the lyrical imagery is so obtuse does preclude me from getting as emotionally involvd in the narrative as I'd like to be, but the song's subdued vibe and your expressive vocal delivery almost completely make up for that. The CD design and artwork, which by the way perfectly suits the darker nature of the music, is also very impressive. I only wish I had time to listen to more of the songs on the CD. I'd love to get an even more comprehensive view of your artistry.
