"Head Above Water" - APEI Records, 2012

"Head Above Water" is the dynamic debut album from Austin, TX based singer-songwriter Mike Dubose. Edgy, gripping tunes that remind you of what 60's troubadours would sound like if they had grown up listening to punk rock.



Already critically acclaimed, Mike Dubose is a homespun Austin, TX singer-songwriter. Growing up around the talent that has spring out of Austin, such as James McMurtry and Tish Hinojosa, Mike has shared the stage with Willie Nelson, Lucinda Williams, Pete Seeger, Elliot Smith, Indigo Girls, Foo Fighters, Son Volt & WIlco.

When the CD "Head Above Water" was originally discussed, it was going to be a total rock-band project. However, once inside Wire Studio in Austin, it quickly became evident that an acoustic approach suited the songs. Mike always writes on acoustic guitar, so it seemed only natural that the audience should get to experience the songs as they were written. With the engineering expertise of Stuart Sullivan, producer Bill Teags enlisted the help of local Austin musicians Danny Levin (cello), Amanda Kitchens (accordion), Sumner Erickson (tuba) and Dianna Bruschke (backing vocals) to bring life to Mike's musical ideas.

Each song on this CD has a story that is told through well-crafted and thought-provoking lyrics. Accustomed to the painful side of life while vowing never to give in to any affliction, Mike's lyrics bring you into the story. You can feel the raw emotion just underneath the surface, waiting to capture your mind and draw you into the story.
