Mike Andersen Band releases new EP!
With two critically acclaimed albums behind them, Mike Andersen Band is now ready with three strong soul numbers!
Modern soul with deep roots
With two previous albums and hundreds of concerts all over Europe, the Mike Andersen Band has developed their own creative and destinctive style within the soul genre.
The three brand new songs are carried by Mike Andersen’s characteristic, intense and soulful voice, while the production gives the songs a modern and unique touch.
The EP is produced by the band’s trumpetist, RasmusB, who’s great love for neo-soul artists such as D’angelo og Erykah Badu has resulted in a production, which appeals to the modern soul audience. The same audience that is drawn to artists like Alicia Keys, John Legend og Joss Stone.
6 års of constant development
Six years ago the Mike Andersen Band began in the classic soul/blues tradition. Through a natural process, always with an urge to push creative boundaries, the band has now found their own strong, personal, and contemporary style!
They do not descriminate between the genres: soul, blues, and jazz, but draw freely from all elements of black american music.
Most recently the Copenhagen rapper, Al Agami, was featured on the album ”Tomorrow”. Since then Agami has had several guest appearrences with the Mike Andersen Band. Always with great success.
This openess gives the band a broad and constantly growing audience!
The EP is a taste of the forthcoming full length album.
(expected release: mid-2007)
