The new album by singer-songwriter Mike Grogan, called Too Many Ghosts is released on the 10th February, 2017. This will be Mike’s third album and like the last one Make Me Strong, it is a conceptual work. This beautiful reflective album, with ten original songs, embraces the fragility of life and love (‘Let Me Feel The Rain’, ‘Show Them What Love Can Do’, ‘Wish You’, ‘Underground’, ‘The Way’), and it also reflects on the past whilst trying to look optimistically into the future (‘Too Many Ghosts’, ‘Heaven Is Here’). It delivers a karmic message (‘Hallelujah’), that we should strive to do the right thing, and that the superficialities of life won’t help in the long run.
As with the last album, this one has been recorded and produced by Devon based Mark Tucker, who has been responsible for many great albums of late for example Show Of Hands’ Wake The Union and The Long Way Home. Mike has enlisted the support of some great musicians on this album including John ‘Rabbit’ Bundrick (The Who, Free, Bob Marley, Crawler), Phil Beer and Miranda Sykes (Show Of Hands) along with James Eller (The The).
Mike will be playing stripped down and solo with just voice and guitars extensively across the country in 2017 and will also be playing many festivals during the summer of 2017 with full band.
