about

"Days Go By" (30th October, 2018) is the follow up to 2010's Emptyhead Recordings release "The Grown Ups". Mick's long awaited, "difficult 2nd" album is a heady mix of Power Pop, '70's AOR, Motown and Americana, combined with the melodic storytelling that Mick is known for. Produced by Jim Boggia, the album features a stellar cast of musicians including Tracy Bonham, Richard Causon (Ryan Adams, Jayhawks, Ray Davies), Dana Myzer (Cotton Mather, Farrah), Henrik Irgens (Natalie Imbruglia, Jamie Lawson). Rosalie Deighton also guests providing the sublime harmony vocalson the beautiful duet, "River bend". Recorded in London, Philadelphia and New York, these 10 new songs written by Mick and expertly arranged and curated by Jim Boggia are the sound of a truly magical collaboration between the artist and his producer. Classic songwriting at it's very finest!

Track Name: Emily Come Back
I was sinking when you found me
With my heart of stone
Worn around the edges
Frayed and sepia toned

Now the days go by and I waste my time
Photos fade, fates resign
Emily come back
Pages curl and the dust motes fly
Count the hours, wonder why
Emily come back

Either tethered to a smoke ring
Or spat out like a spark
Waiting for the world to spin
Just to leave a mark

Now the days go by and I waste my time
Photos fade, fates resign
Emily come back
Dust motes fly and the pages curl
All these lines about a girl
Emily come back

Sometimes I hear you laughing
Or see your sweet smile upon another’s lips

Now the days go by and I waste my time
Photos fade, fates resign
Emily come back
Pages curl and the dust motes fly
Count the hours, wonder why
Emily come back
Emily come back
Emily come back
Track Name: Riverbend
Down the steps I came
I left in ankle chains
A ship of fools set sail with me
The sun lit up the Thames as Big Ben chimed
It sounded like a death knell to me

Out of the blue, into the black
Head hung low, there’s no looking back
It’s just 10,000 miles from the riverbend

No champagne on the bow
No flags, No kids allowed
No you to wave goodbye to me
Hung my coat upon that burned out sinking sun
And the rest, they say, is history

Out of the blue, into the black
Head hung low, there’s no looking back
It’s just 10,000 miles from the riverbend

On the bridge at dawn
Almost two centuries on
The sun stretches from the sea
With my shackles gone,
Who knew we’d live so long
You would be envious of me

Out of the blue, into the black
Head hung low, there’s no looking back
It’s just 10,000 miles from the riverbend
It’s just 10,000 miles from the riverbend
