“Whistling Past The Graveyard” combines the worlds of acoustic and electric bass in this genre-melding release.
Mike Goodspeed’s new release “Whistling Past The Graveyard” is due out May 2023. It follows his 2022 full length debut “Oort Cloud”.
Boston-based bassist Mike Goodspeed was prolific in 2022, regularly releasing many of the singles comprising “Whistling Past The Graveyard”. The flanger-flavored acoustic bass of the 1980’s inspired title track kicks off the proceedings. New track “Liquid, Fragile or Potentially Hazardous” recalls Dave LaRue’s work with the Steve Morse Band. A remixed version of the ambient and atmospheric “A Real Gullywasher” poses another highlight.
Rocco Prestia’s fingerstyle ghost notes and Edgar Meyer’s bluesy glissandi (“Creaky Old Man”) and Billy Sheehan’s tapping (“Why So Serious”) are a few of the other disparate bass influences sprinkled throughout this eclectic release.
Mike Goodspeed’s other releases are available on all major platforms, including Spotify, Apple Music and Amazon Music, and are in rotation on Amazing Radio’s genre streams. For more information, visit www.mikegoodspeedmusic.com.
