      Mike Golden & Friends


      In the midst of a public relations and marketing degree at Purdue, Mike Golden, like many college sophomores, began questioning his status as a student and began wishing for life as a musician. Mike, however, had some things that many other college kids do not: a raw passion for music, something to say, and the motivation to get himself heard. He called an old friend, a fellow musician and recording artist from Chicago, and Trees EPs Part I and II were born.

      This collection is the first of Mike’s recorded music under the name “Mike Golden and Friends.” It is a raw, low-budget, but passionate mix of music recorded completely in the Chicago apartment of producer Scot Stewart. Scot’s creativity and vision included unconventional tactics: microphones made of thrift store telephones, bathtub recording, stomping, clapping, and clashing beer bottles to create the album’s percussion. No bass, electric guitar, or drums can be heard on these albums; the focus is on Mike’s breath-taking voice and the sounds of being surrounded by friends. Shows were played to replicate this raw sound, with the stage being full of Mike’s friends drinking, singing, clapping, and clanking their bottles together in unison.
