Artist Snapshot

Mike Eldred is a composer born in Los Angeles, and now based in Phoenix, AZ. His work is primarily Blues and Roots music, but his compositional work has spanned genres ranging from punk, spaghetti western, surf, rock, world music, and orchestral pieces. His compositions evoke the greasy juke-joints from the South, and stir the soul with deep vibes baked in the hot DeIta sun. Eldred is a frequent visitor to Mississippi and other parts of America’s South, searching for instrumentation, stories, and inspiration that eventually become part of his music. As one reviewer wrote, “This is as authentic a blues experience as I’ve ever run into in all my 26+ years writing album reviews.”
