Mike Petersen Acoustic Sessions (2006)

These demo songs were recorded at Chicago’s Joy Ride studio in the summer of 2006 and are mostly made up of simple vocals and an acoustic guitar recorded live. I had a bunch of new songs, several that were a few years old, and some that were among the first songs I wrote. Creatively, I wanted to clear the desk, get out these songs that had never made it onto any albums. On a few of them, Gibson Arlasky laid down some of his typically great harmonies. Many of these songs ended up on Mortal Moon and Jackal and Dove, and we ended up building the album tracks around some of these takes.
