In The Morning

“In the morning when you rise unwillingly, let this thought be present – I am rising to the work of a human being. Why wouldn’t I be satisfied to do the things I exist for and for which I was brought into the world? 
Or was I made for this, to lie in bed and keep myself warm? But this is more pleasant
Do I exist then to take my pleasure and not at all for action or exertion? Don’t I see the little plants, the little birds, the ants, the spiders, the bees working together to put in order their several parts of the universe? And aren’t I willing to do the work of a human being and don’t I hurry to do things according to my nature?”
Marcus Aurelius, 2nd Century

New album "Observations" available now. A veteran of NYC’s underground music scene, Mike Power played on the stages of such beloved lost venues as CBGB’s and Kenny’s Castaways, as well as stalwart surviving ones like Arlene’s Grocery and the Bitter End as singer/songwriter/bassist with Late Model Humans. In 2020, quarantining from the global pandemic he worked remotely with other artists to record a collection of new music called Observations, that infuses his punk roots with introspective acoustic pieces.
