Mike Falzone is back with a new band by his side and a new album entitled “Do It For The Story”. Just as his previous release, “Fun with Honesty”, this one is full of “infectious lyrics, catchy melody, and humor”. Guitar & drum heavy tracks dominate the album and Mike’s engaging voice makes it a real pleasure to listen to. Licensed under Creative Commons, it’s available as a free download via FrostWire and is meant to be widely shared with all family and friends!
Seriously though, “Do It For The Story” is one of those Indie Pop albums you listen to once & catch a bad case of “humming” – there is just that one song that will stick in your mind for days!

The Band says:
The #1 question asked of musicians: “How would you describe your music?”
Our answer: “Indie Pop, with a minty aftertaste, kind of like eating a sexy Peppermint Pattie.” Hey, if someone told me they just heard music that sounds like a sexy mint confection, I’d want to hear what they were talking about.
If you like the album, PLEASE show your support and buy the record on iTunes…its less than $5!!! For an independent musician every penny counts!
