a lyrical balance
with colorful and rolling lyrics mike swan manages to bring you on a journey through the surreal and everyday life.if leonard cohen, neil young and wilco had a conference; mike swan would play at the after party.

eastside drive
it doesn\'t get any more homegrown or deep-rooted than this. if you\'ve been down commercial drive way any time in the last 10 years or more, there\'s a good chance you\'ve seen this guy bangin\' out his tunes, usually in front of the liquor store. with affable charm and easy wit, mike the swan and his beat up guitar have finally seen the inside of a cd case. he\'s brought his songs and a few local friends to help him out and i couldn\'t be more impressed, both with the packaging and the music. the everyday life themes of this lovely collection of 11 songs shows me that mike believes in what he\'s singing about, and that\'s the neighborhood in which he lives and the people that are in it. be it the street strolling drug addicted subject in \"jennifer\'s tear\" and the more than 1 reference to his son, these are real people and these are real stories made music by one of the most real dudes i know.
