We've already had some amazing feedback, and it's always a good feeling to get a response out of friends and extended circles.

Up and coming artist, Mike San, has been hard at work on his debut album, "Like Water", which will feature six catchy tracks that are worth hearing.

While Mike San’s musical influences span anywhere from folk to industrial, Mike likes to call his sound “ambient indie pop.”

So far, Mike has released three singles off the upcoming album, two of which (Burn This Night and Half of You) were recorded and mixed by Savino Melluzzo Jr. at the Onyx SoundLab in Manchester, CT, while the other song (It's Only Right) was recorded and mixed by Mike himself at his home studio in Northern, CT.

"Burn This Night has a cool indie electronic feel to it with a solid hip hop style beat," explains Mike. "It's sort of a cross between Portishead's sound, but with the delicate vocals of someone like Thom Yorke. "In the case of Half of You, however, it's the piano and vocal hooks throughout the song, which give it that ambient pop sound, more familiarly heard with such Indie bands as Beach House or Mazzy Star."    

Mike also elaborated on the song, It's Only Right, which he considers to be his offering of a catchy pop song. "I think that the up-beat intro with that classical style guitar really catches the listener's ear right off the bat. There are definitely some influences from Coldplay in this song, I have to admit."    

When asked how the public has reacted to the release of the three singles, Mike said, "We've already had some amazing feedback, and it's always a good feeling to get a response out of friends and extended circles."

Mike San (Michael Goldberg) grew up in Northern, CT and has been playing music since childhood. Mike has studied meditation, Buddhism, and psychology and has a BA in Transpersonal Psychology. He has previously released four albums under the artist name Musical Mandalas, which is an ambient new-age musical project. Mike San currently lives in Northern, CT, where he is pursuing a career in music production, and as a recording/performing artist. The album release date for his debut album as Mike San, is not yet set, although it is expected to be released sometime this fall.
