new single -
"hand of the sculptor"
out on blackbird record label October 21!
We are both honored and thrilled to announce Nashville based recording and touring artist Mike Miz has joined our Blackbird roster! "Hand of the Sculptor", the first single from his upcoming album Only Human, releases on 10/21.
Hailing from Northeast Pennsylvania, Mike spent the better part of the last decade playing festivals, clubs, and songwriter joints from Philadelphia to Asbury Park to NYC. Highlights from more than 200 shows per year include opening for Jakob Dylan, Jason Isbell, Lukas Nelson, Derek Trucks, America, Shawn Colvin, Blues Traveler, Railroad Earth, Jackie Greene, Southside Johnny, and many more.
Shortly after his arrival to the Nashville scene, Mike’s unique talent garnered the attraction of industry pillars Ted Pecchio, Laur Joamets, Jon Radford and engineer/producer Brook Sutton, who assembled a top-notch band around Mike. This collaboration resulted in the recording of 11 new, original songs tracked live to tape in 3 days at the Wood Brother's studio in West Nashville. The new album, Only Human tells the story of a 15-year battle with heroin addiction, love lost, years wasted, troubles with the law, and more. It unrolls an autobiographical journey that culminates with optimistic redemption of a man who never gave up.
