“For me, music is a pool,” Mike says of his writing process. “As you go through life, your pool fills; and when it’s full, the music and lyrics create themselves. When the pool empties, you have to let life refill it with day-to-day experiences.”

Several tracks from Yellow Rays can be heard on a variety of local college and public radio stations throughout New Jersey and Pennsylvania, as well a variety of music streaming sites, such as Last.fm and MontCo Radio.
