a different path

There is no escaping from problems that we let grow until they are too big to solve without hurting someone.

There is no solution to a puzzle that keeps growing as each generation adds another pile of pieces.

Some questions don’t have answers that are either right or wrong.

Some battles are lost in the moment when you decide to fight.

We can continue on this path, trying to solve our problems by blowing things up, locking each other in cages, and wondering why our problems never get solved, or we can try something different. We can try living up to the ideals we preach so proudly. We can try being less proud, too. A little humility goes a long way these days. Like everything else in an economy built on the valuation of finite resources, humility is precious due to its rarity.

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.
