Mike the Prophet- Parasite
Mike the Prophet, of Durham, NC, has a love-hate relationship with technology.
That tension is expressed in his new single, "Parasite." Thick with clever wordplay, and soaring violin and cello, the song is a mosaic of old-school music with novel lyrics and forms.
Singing about the "Parasite" of constant convenience and instant gratification, the young Mike the Prophet reinterprets themes from folk, rock, pop, and hip-hop, and seems poised to avoid genre labels while carrying a distinctive and catchy sound all his own.
The young artist leaves in April on a 16-date tour of the Southeast to promote the new single, which is set for release the week of 4/7/2017
Parasite (Private streaming audio and video to the right) was produced by Michael Furlong and Chris Short at Alpaca Ranch Recordings in Altamonte Springs, FL.
