GOOD LUCK MOUNTAIN
‘Too’ is the second album by Good Luck Mountain, led by ex Tandy singer songwriter Mike Ferrio.
Mike Ferrio began his musical journey in the 80s as a roadie for the likes of Bo Diddley and Butthole Surfers, before forming folk rock tour de force Tandy in the 90’s, managing a dozen years of exceptional productivity which included over 1,000 live shows and 8 albums.
From the ashes of Tandy, Good Luck Mountain first appeared with their eponymous debut album in 2011, with ‘Too’ being the perfect follow up. It’s a wondrous production – passionate, reflective, and transcendental, which musically recalls the likes of Sparklehorse, REM, Van Morrison’s ‘Astral Weeks’ and Talk Talk.
Recorded at Atomic Sound in New York by Merle Chornuk (Ryan Adams, Jesse Malin), the album features the wildly talented band of Malcolm Holcombe, Ana Egge, Canadian rocker Matt Mays, The Mastersons, (Eleanor Whitmore & Chris Masterson also of Steve Earle's band) and Jason Mercer (of Ron Sexsmith's band).
Already receiving rave reviews from critics and peers alike, legendary troubadour Steve Earle is an early and longtime supporter and Jim White continues to spread the word about his love for Mike and his music. There’s no doubt that ‘Too’ is another large step for Mike Ferrio as he continues to cement his reputation as one of the great American songwriters of our generation.
