Michael and Mia first sat down together to play music 45 years ago, resulting in a musical partnership devoted to singing quality songs regardless of genre. Their collaboration continues with the followup to their previous album "Cover Art.".
"Rough Magic" was recorded in Seattle, WA and re-imagines the music they heard from childhood to the present, mostly interpreted in fingerstyle guitar and voice. Along with six originals are songs by Paul Simon, Biff Rose, Lennon & McCartney, Incredible String Band, Michael Peter Smith, Blind Willie McTell, Duke Ellington, and more.
Seattle reviewer Steve Wacker:
"This is deliciously excellent work. I've been listening since I got it and am enjoying it immensely. Superbly recorded, great arrangements, lovely harmonies, and a variety of tunes. One of the best collections I've heard in a while!"
