Local Musician To Play At River Street Jazz Cafe: Mike Mizwinski

You can catch one of his live shows on September 9th at the River Street Jazz Cafe!

Mike Miz Mentioned in Rolling Stone!

Earlier this year, Mike had the shock of having one of his songs featured in Rolling Stone magazine. His song, “Virginia” was featured in the magazine’s weekly list of best new country songs for the week.

According to the Rolling Stones write-up:

“Nashville transplant Mike Miz releases a monster of a jam-rocker that, like the Stones did decades before him, pins an irresistible melody to one of rock’s most pined-after three-syllable names. ‘Virginia’ floats along on barroom piano, snaking guitar leads, and fiery harmonies from guest Nicki Bluhm, who parries with Miz over their half-hearted relationship. ‘It’s the middle of the night, I’m peacing out,’ Miz sings to her, ‘’cause I got nothing left inside to give ya.’ He’s lying though: The Pennsylvania native has a blistering guitar solo that he’s just waiting to unleash in the song’s final minute.”
