I was lucky to sit down and chat with Michael of Borrowed Sparks on Zoom.
Mike Bay was inundated from an early age with great American songwriters, he absorbed the sounds and the songs that would pass the test of time and prove to become a kind of cryptic road map to place he didn’t yet know he was going.
The first music he would call his own; Punk rock (as good teenagers are wont to do). Around the same time getting his first electric guitar. Game over.
Bay just released his debut EP. It’s for fans of Americana, Singer-songwriter, Roots Rock, Folk and Punk.
