Mikey Wax – For Better Or Worse [EP]
Mikey Wax is a singer-songwriter from Long Island who released a six song EP this year, following his 2008 debut album, “Change Again”.
Mikey’s unique voice on “For Better or Worse” makes for some easy listening. Upon first listen, his voice reminded me a bit of BBMak and The Moffatts – two so-called “boy bands” that played instruments from about 10 years ago. Mikey’s music is pretty mellow but also catchy. Fans of other singer songwriters such as Howie Day, who Mikey just finished up a tour with, would most likely enjoy Mikey’s laid back poppy sound.
So Crazy stands out as a track that is a little more rockin’ than the rest. All the songs go together well on this EP. Check Mikey out if you’re into John Mayer (one of his influences), Jason Reeves, Tyler Hilton, or Jason Mraz.
