Made a Mess

by Michael McFarland

My Hurricane 04:39


Hello there, friends. My name's Michael McFarland, and I've lived my whole life in or around the college town of Kent, Ohio. I've spent the past 11 years performing, recording & touring with various bands from around the area.

During the summer of 2010 I experienced the first great loss of my life, and when I finally composed myself enough to start writing music again, the songs that poured out just didn't seem to fit within the framework of my band - and besides, we already had more than enough material written to fill out another album.

At midnight on September 15, upon arriving home after an unplanned open mic night appearance, I sequestered myself at Spontaneously Combustible Studio, and 5 days later emerged with a 6-song EP, entitled "Made a Mess."

These songs may not be the most unique, clever, or innovative. The recordings may not be the most polished. My voice may sound raw. And while I hope you love my songs, if you don't, that's ok too. Seasons change, life goes on... but it's quiet now in the eye of my hurricane.
