BROOKLYN, NY 2014
Singer, songwriter, and ace guitarist Mike Delledera’s debut full-length album, WakeUpSideDowntown (Ivy Productions, Inc.), released May 13th, brims with epiphanic genre-bending, virtuoso musicianship, expansive expressiveness, and topnotch songwriting. On it, the Brooklyn-based artist is backed with longtime friends, bandmates and a roster of New York City’s finest young session cats. It’s a masterful debut from an artist on the verge.
“I’m really excited for everyone to hear this record; the songs were burning a hole in my heart and mind,” says Delledera. And after a successful Kickstarter campaign, Delledera was able to create the album he artistically envisioned.
