ISLAND GETAWAY by Mike Broward
All the best stories are but one story in reality - the story of escape. It is the only thing which interests us all and at all times, how to escape.
A. C. Benson
I sell escapism.
Mike Broward's latest CD, Island Getaway, is founded along these guiding lines. Centered in the theme of escape and the tropics, this album weaves it's way through everyday mundane experience of the job and boss and a way to feel good about them, to the sheer joy of getting away to a more relaxed, laid back lifestyle.
There is a longing for the tropics and a need to lose one's self, expressed in a spicy stew of rock, blues, and pure Trop-Rock escapism.
From the opening track," Little Miss Sunshine", a bright island ode to love-at-first-sight, to the single entertainers eternal question of what to do next in "What Would Jimmy Do?", this collection maintains a balance of energy, rocking tempos and an absolutely fun, positive vibe.
Recorded with the "A" list of studio session players in one of Nashville's best kept secrets,
Off The Row Studios, this work comes to life with stellar musicianship and wonderful production.
Give it a listen!
