Clone Mike strives for a fresh sound in their songwriting and range of material. One listen to a few of their songs and you may not believe it’s the same band. From the heavy rock sound of “Life to Give” to the bluesy “Losing Height” or the opening grooves of “Skitz” to the all out “U4” Clone Mike show great musical range while still maintaining a cohesive group sound. Not an easy trick.
