I am a self-described music geek currently living in the Nashville, TN area. By day, I am an insurance executive. By night, you can find me at a live show or pouring through the bins of a used record store. Born and raised just outside of New York City, I spent two decades in South Texas before moving to Music City in 1998.
I have seen and heard a lot of great live music in Nashville and beyond, and I look forward to reliving some of those memories here with you as well as reporting on ones yet to come. In addition, you will find occasional local music news and some of my thoughts on music in general.
I first wrote about music as a record reviewer for my college newspaper in the late Seventies. From 1995 to 2001, I published Beyond Belief, a critically-acclaimed Elvis Costello fanzine. Many respect me as a music archivist and avid record collector to the degree that record labels have consulted with me on several projects.
Your input is important to me, so leave your comments here at the blog or e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org. You will also find me on Facebook as Music City Mike and on Twitter as @MusicCityMike.
Looking forward to sharing my musical adventures with you!
Music City Mike
