Brand new to the Los Angeles alt rock music scene, Michael Conrad will be debuting his first single “Progress” starting this summer. And the song could not have come at a more perfect time. With the election year edging closer, Progress explores today’s socioeconomic status, inequality, and love of power. The song is available now on iTunes, Amazon, and Google Play. It was recorded at 17th Street Recording Studio in Costa Mesa with well-known local producer Lew Richards. Lew has worked with artists such as The Dirty Heads, Slightly Stoopid, Sublime with Rome, and Micha Brown to name a few.
Lew Richards (Producer) states “I had a really great time working with Mike I was honored to be a part of his first real studio recording. He was professional all the way through and I’m really stoked on how the song came out. Look forward to seeing what Mike does in the future.”
Alex Vo (Dobro and Electric Guitar) said “I had a great time and it was a pleasure working on Mike’s new song!”
Michael’s guitar style consists of a fast acoustic Celtic rhythm, palm muted strumming, sprinkled in harmonics, and a strong laid back modern rock feel. He has many musical influences including, but not limited to: Red Hot Chili Peppers, Incubus, John Butler Trio, and Dispatch. Growing up in a small town in New England, Michael moved out to Los Angeles originally to make a career in the film industry but found himself returning to his love of music and poetry.
Progess has a Wild West feel, utilizing spoken word with a clean and rich sounding chorus. A song that strikes a chord with the listener, both harsh and inviting. A local LA County tour is planned for mid to late summer 2016. The single will be ready for radio play and sent to all media venues in California, Hawaii, Boston, Austin, Atlanta and Nashville areas respectively. Michael is currently working on new material for a full length feature album. Acoustic versions of those songs will be performed at his shows this summer.
