11pm-12am: Mike B.

I am a guitarist. I am a beatboxer. I am a vocalist. Over the last few years I have been exploring a technique where I do all three simultaneously, writing music that emphasizes every element to my fullest ability. I want to capture the magic and mystery of all my idols; bring my music to people and bring people to me through my music. I’m not interested in styles or labels, fitting neatly into a category in the record rack. I want to listen and harness that which makes great music great, and smash those barriers we’ve invented to keep each other separate. In doing so, one begins to lose their identity.
