In this industry where it's "signed mainstreams" versus "DIY indies", it's exciting to come across an artist with versatility and great stage presence. You can come across a lot of good music with radio potential but the big question is "are they that good in front of a crowd?"
Meet Mike Rose. Simple name w/ the cliche frames yet a crazy, spine tingling style... yes, for a white boy. I was first introduced to him in April earlier this year. As my partner, @Michelle8605, and I shared laughs with him and his entourage in the VIP at the Stratosphere Complex in Jacksonville, NC, little did we know we'd stop midway in our sexy two steps starring at the stage in awe as he performed his "Wild Boys Remix" f/ True Bars. His presence IS the party.
April 30 he released "Choice Words" on MikeRose.com and DatPiff hosted by DJ Murdaman and the Southern Drop DJ's. The singles: “ROLL MY L”, “MAYBE”, “#WBL”, and “2 OF US”. My favs: "Far from 22", "Maybe", Rack City Remix, and "Im Gone" f/ Remi.
Below check out the Im Gone video filmed in Greenville, NC by CNC and his Rack City Remix.
