Mike Bones: The Sky Behind The Sea
Mike Bones is New Jersey-born songwriter Mike Strallow, who lives and works in New York City. Of his pseudonym, Strallow offers: “Bones is a nickname a friend gave to me when I was a kid. Making records as Mike Bones removes my voice from the song, at least in my own mind and leaves a song’s meaning and intention ambiguous. I don’t have to show my cards.” Although Bones has been writing songs for years, worked as a guitar player for The Mighty Flashlight, Damon McMahon, and Lizzie Trulie, and is a member of cult favorites Soldiers of Fortune (a band featuring members of Oneida, Home, and Oakley Hall), The Sky Behind the Sea marks his debut solo recording.
