On the upper road


Time doesn’t matter on the upper road
It stopped passing a long time ago
The children here are descended from trees
that wandered down the mountain before there were leaves

The forest knows how to make itself still
and let the sky come to it
The birds know just how to call to the sunlight
and when to let it fade away
The dead make themselves food for the living
and the living learn from the sacrifice of those that are gone

Ghost machines rattle down roads
that were eaten up by wilderness a long time ago

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.
