Beneath Southland Skies

cover of the CD 'Beneath Southland Skies'

With his latest release Beneath Southland Skies, Mike Brosnan continues to thrive and expand both as a storyteller and singer. Planned for release in January 2006, Beneath Southland Skies demonstrates Brosnan's eye for lyrical detail and emotive delivery.
Assembling a small but crack band, Mike Brosnan set out with a mission to capture the most honest and heartfelt performances they could find. Recorded live in the studio, Beneath Southland Skies was made with minimal overdubs. Without the fussiness and formality of layering the recording, something special was revealed - the heart of the songs.
Lyrically and musically, Beneath Southland Skies finds Mike Brosnan with his most personal group of songs yet. From the gritty, real-life details of "Another Song For The Road" to the dark poetry of "Be With You", to the rocking opening track "Letter To A Friend", this group of songs stands as a testament to artistic self-revelation.

Streets of Glass

cover of the CD 'Streets of Glass'

Recorded in NZ during 1998, Streets of Glass was a major production, taking more than 2 months to complete in one of NZ's finest recording studios, and features many of that countries leading contemporary musicians.
Containing nine Mike Brosnan originals, Streets of Glass displays for the first time Mike Brosnan as a World-class songwriter rather than simply as a fine interpreter of blues classics.
A classy album for which positive comparisons are often drawn with Ry Cooder and John Hiatt at their best.
