Mike Zito talks hometown and music with STL’s PLAYBACK

Mike Zito_500 MZ:  I live in Southeast Texas in Naderland. I’ve lived here for 12 years. Moving away is sometimes necessary, especially if you are an artist or a musician. You need to get out of the rut. I think getting stuck in the same place, you never get out. When I lived in St. Louis, I never toured because you could work from St. Louis all the time. I never went out on the road, so when I moved to where I am now—it’s a really small town—you have to drive if you want to play. I started driving to Louisiana, Austin. So if I wanted to play, I had to get out. That really helps when you start touring.

Blues Rock Magazine’s Take on Songs From The Road

The most outstanding thing about Songs from the Road is Mike Zito’s voice. His delivery is spot on and dripping with soul on every track. The Wheel does a masterful job of complementing Mike’s voice. Jimmy Carpenter’s sax and Lewis Stephen’s piano and organ shared solos, along with Mike’s guitar work, really opens up the sound. This is an excellent representation of what Mike Zito and the Wheel can do in a live setting.

EXCLUSIVE: Mike Zito Opens Up About Leaving Royal Southern Brotherhood

american-blues_main
“Know Thyself,” an expression made famous by Greek philosopher and mathematician Plato, is a painfully simple phrase, but its elusive message can take a lifetime to fully realize. Last year, Texas bluesman Mike Zito took a deep look inward and outward, and made the bittersweet decision to change the direction his life in order to stay true to himself. He decided he would have to leave the wildly successful Royal Southern Brotherhood if he wanted to pursue the sound, and the family, he has been building towards for most of his life.
