It is beginning to look like we will only need Twitter and friends like @allindie to find great talent like Mike Grosshandler. The first time we heard Mike was on Butterflies Radio's Twitter Tuesday Live. The song "Status Quo" played and I personally loved it. We invited him for our promotions that very night and landed this interview a short time after. Please read our interview with Mike below.
Mike, as a musician who has experienced both being a solo acoustic act and being part of several bands, which do you prefer and why?
Your story seems to be one of growth. Did you always know your destination or do your long-term goals change with each project?
You are basically the poster boy for DIY music. You set out to do things yourself and then stumble upon greater opportunities. Do you attribute that to luck, favor of the Gods, or just good 'ol hard-work and preparation?
Was it a difficult decision to convert your demo recordings as solo projects? Was there a fear of wanting to have more production on the recordings or did you just know that they were ready?
At the end of the day, what would you like your body of musical work to say?
Oh yeah, and if you ever decided to retire your signature fisherman hat, can you send it over to Independent Music and Media for their curated art collection of great indie musicians?
