Released back in March of 2008, Mike Previti released "Lights" an EP featuring 6 brand new tracks. Right out of the gate the song "Safe And Sound" sets the tone. This track is definitely radio friendly because of its catchy lyrics but there's something more here, how about the fact it is a major repeater! Seriously! I had this track going over and over when writing this review, it is truly a track that can be played anywhere at anytime. But wait... There's more tracks to discuss... Little Man, comes off as a mixture of new and old. The guitars are sassy, drums are pounding and the lyrics are easy to groove along to. Definitely a different type of tune from Mike but he pulls it off easily! Of course with the flow of this release one has to assume there would be a ballad. The track "One Last Breath" has a ballad feel but it is more up tempo then the typical ones. Now if you are looking for more of a traditional laid back ballad design, take a listen to the title track "Lights". Again not a typical ballad but it has a slower pace for those who enjoy kicking back and slowly drifting away in their thoughts. Overall Mike has done it again! If you heard his previous release in "Extraordinary" you know he's not messing around. He is truly a musician that steps up to the plate with a collection of amazing material that will leave you wanting more.

> Good - Great album flow, every track had something different to offer. Awesome price, purchase on iTunes for less then $6.00 or get a signed copy via his website for $9.00, you can't beat this deal!

> Bad - Not a thing, this EP has everything it needs. Only thing I could say bad is that.. It's Short... I want a Full Album!!!!... But that's not really a bad thing.

> Similar - Lifehouse

> Label - Indie - Shipwrecked Island Studios

Bio

After much success with his 2006 debut, "Extraordinary", Mike Previti's 2008 follow up "Lights", is a sophomore effort that cannot be denied.

Produced by Anthony J Resta (Collective Soul, Duran Duran, Elton John, Shawn Mullins), "Lights" is a collection of songs about strength, hope and spirit that make you believe from the first note, that Previti is an artist at the top of his game, ready to take the world stage. "I've been waiting to do a record like this for a long time", Previti says. "These six songs encapsulate all that I'm about at this point in my life, and also show my ability to write a strong song, and give it depth, whatever type of song I write".

Depth in his writing and professionalism as an artist is what allowed Previti to team up with producer Resta, who was blown away with Previti's songwriting abilities from the start. Previti's professionalism and determination also led to Collective Souls Ryan Hoyle, tracking drums for five of the six songs on "Lights".

Shortly after the release of "Lights", Mike was a featured artist on MTV's "The Real World: Hollywood" and on MTV.com. A licensing deal with Viacom followed which allowed for Mike's music being featured on many other television shows.

"Now the plan is to get out there and play live", Previti, says. "Playing live is so much a part of who I am". Previti's energetic live shows are a big part of the equation as to who Mike Previti is as an artist. "Giving these songs to an audience in a live setting is such a different dynamic, almost spiritual at points. I think it's important to have that part of the experience as well".

Songs of life, hope and everything in between, we are clued in on Previti's outlook on the world to bring us a fresh perspective and a distinct sound that will grab anyone's attention. Conviction, drive and heart are the backbone of this true artist, who is ready to standout, to be seen and to be heard.
