CHICAGO'S BEST SONGWRITER
Michael Petersen could be Chicago's best songwriter. From Spiralbound, one of the best records I've ever heard, to the wildly ambitious, 2 CD release in 2012 of Jackal and Dove/Mortal Moon, it is one great song after another. The rootsy/folk of "River" sees Petersen moving into a realm he seemed comfortable with in the past but in "River" it is upfront and intrepid. Fans of Parker Millsap and Mumford and Sons will be right at home.
