A singer/songwriter influenced by the jangly pop of the 80's Athens scene, Mike Shupp writes heartland pop with crunching guitars and a sugary sweet voice. A Virginia native, Shupp first played with Bang Theory in the early 90's, but when the band fell apart he found himself unable to keep another outfit together. Undaunted, he simply went solo, releasing October Sun in 1997 and garnering raves from Spin Magazine among other sources.
I needed two or three spins in the beginning i listened to the album. After that the album was for a longer time regular in my player. This guy is a very good songwriter at least what i hear on this album. Give it a try if you like laid back jangle pop with strong songs.
