It was a pleasure (again) to listen to and speak with Mike Alviano last night when he performed for the folks cascading over the field at the bread box / cardboard house / care free cafe on Hornby Island, BC, canada – I’t always a pleasure talking with Mike since he’s one of the most down to earth and honest musicians to grace the ears of traveling patrons –
He has always offered audiences with a soundscape that not only is musically beautiful but also technically challenging with his various pedals and melodies.
Here’s what New Canadian Music had to say about him as well:
“With his emotionally hypnotic songs Mike Alviano is a Canadian singer songwriter that has captured the attention of music lovers from coast to coast. He recently released his 3rd and most ambitious solo recording “the vagabond songs”. For over 10 years Mike has taken his brand of honest, heartfelt, Alt-Country, acoustic, folk-pop and slightly experimental songs on the road. He has toured throughout Canada and across the Atlantic into Europe. A quiet soft-spoken man of few words he prefers to let his music do the talking (unless he’s drunk). His heart lives on the road and he has embraced a life of touring, adventure and traveling playing shows at folk festivals, cafes, pubs, coffee houses and theatres. The people place and events he has crossed paths with have found a place in his songs.”
Thank’s for giving us another night of insight into your world, Mike!
