Mike Edel - 31

Mike Edel - 31

With folk echoes that remind me a little of Chris Stills, Mike Edel lays down some smooth and easy roots-pop and claims some spiritual ground for the years ahead. His sense of melody and his production aesthetic are both balanced and rich, with a warm acoustic guitar and some smooth lead vocals. The thematic play is the question of where the line is: how old am I now, and where are my priorities? Is it ever too late to change course? Who decides?

It’s an important coming-of-age moment, giving yourself permission to be free to choose; and this is a fitting ode to that sense of both commitment and looming hardship. For a husband, and a parent: the road is hard but the joys are many.

Mike Edel splits his time between Seattle, WA and the mountains of British Columbia. This song is featured on our Lost Treasure - Americana playlist.
