About Mike’s new record: “Blood & Water”-
“You can sense the sweat and tears singer-songwriter Mangione put in his latest album, produced by Larry Campbell, the late Levon Helm’s Grammy-winning music director and producer, and Bob Dylan‘s former guitarist. Campbell gives these 11 Americana tracks a warm glow, but it’s Mangione’s impassioned lyrics, pleading for strength despite life’s pains on “Spirit Awake” for instance, that shine brightest.” Piet Levy, Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
“Lyrically, the tunes are reminiscent of Bruce Springsteen’s ability to describe characters in such exquisite detail that by the end of five minutes it seems as if you’ve known them your whole life. These are people and songs you’ll want to revisit and spend more time with. That’s the mark of a great songwriter, which is exactly what Mike Mangione is. Listen once and you’ll be calling your friends to rave about Mangione” – American Songwriter Magazine
