“Between the Lines (Live)” — Pre-Save on Spotify and Apple Music

“Between the Lines (Live)” — Pre-Save on Spotify and Apple Music

“Between the Lines” will go live on all streaming services March 16th, and pre-saving it NOW will help the algorithms notice it and recommend it to others. PRE-SAVE “BETWEEN THE LINES (LIVE)” HERE I’d really appreciate the click, because I have a soft spot for this one. I love whoever it is, in his car, daydreaming, asking the big questions. Or maybe it’s The Big Question. I think we’re all doing a bit more of that than ever, lately. This version was recorded before the pandemic, at the 2019-2020 Holiday Show. I was lucky to share the stage that night with bassist Nick Jost and guitarist Nick Cianci, who is a former student of mine, and a brilliant player. ”Between the Lines” has never been recorded in the studio, but I hope to change that this year. I’ve been working on…well…something else. Something kinda big. But that’s for another email. Until then, pre-save, share this with friends, and enjoy. I hope this finds you safe and well. -M Between the Lines May 21st Wind in the trees on my way to work I’m late again High up in the leaves Versions of me I may not ever be For being who I am Am I doing this right Am I doing this right They’re just paintings on the road But I really want to know What’s between the lines A good look around Coffee in faces lost in what they found Like truth just pulled up slow And once in a while They jerk the wheel and hit the evening news That’s one way to go Chorus Easy come...

What a night. Thanks to Nick Jost (bass), Nick Cianci (guitar), Gabriella DeLa Cruz, and Kate Yeager (vocals) for being as amazing as they are. You are not going to believe what’s coming in 2020—I don’t even believe it. Happy holidays!   Holiday Show, Rockwood 2,...

Hey: If you found this page, good on you. Chances are you’re here because you are going/went to the 2017 Mike Errico Holiday Show and might have some footage of the day/evening to share. Nice work! I had an idea… I’d like to see if we can compile ALL of our footage, and create something cool out of it. So, here’s what to do: – Have fun at the show – Take whatever photos, video, etc. Pre-game. Post-game — you call it. – Take the footage and GO HERE. (It’s a simple Dropbox folder, FYI.) – Upload what you got (I also left a couple gifts for you to take…examples of the kind of thing we can end up with – shh) – Let’s see what happens! CREDIT: You can title the content you upload in the filename so I’ll know who to thank at the end of whatever gets made. You’ll be able to see what happens at #holidayomens Could this go wrong? Everything, potentially, can go wrong. Can it go right? Not to sound like a yogi or anything, but it can’t go right unless it actually GOES. Real talk, people. SO, AGAIN: THAT URL IS HERE. Take shots. Upload. Let’s see what happens! Thanks for playing...

Mike Errico on the BBC

Mike Errico on the BBC

Good times w/ The BBC (@bbcnews) discussing why we don’t have long song intros like “Hotel California” anymore, but we do have 8-hour-long compositions you’re meant to sleep through. Confusing times, these. I’m trying to make sense of it myself. “No one does rumpled like you, Errico…” — a friend. I don’t think I look rumpled. Do I? The ‘no tie’ was a choice, and a recommendation, and I think it was a good call. No? I sat in a room in NY while this was going on in the UK. I’d never done that before. Very disembodied. Very Max Headroom. Since I was alone, had to take a selfie in the monitor. Probably could have looked at the monitor, too. Now it looks like I’m checking my Instagram. All rumpled. (See above.) Anyway, it was cool. Thanks to the BBC for calling me. (They really did call me. I know. I was surprised, too.) I hope I shed some light on what is basically a totally open-ended future. For those unaware of my teaching side, here’s the spiel from NYU: New York-based musician, writer, and lecturing professor, Mike Errico has built his name on the strength of critically acclaimed releases and extensive composition for film and TV. He has taught songwriting at Yale and Wesleyan universities, and speaks about the art and business of songwriting at colleges, high schools, and conferences across the country. Live, Errico has toured the country for over a decade, playing major music festivals and sharing stages with artists including Raul Midon, Jonny Lang, Soulive, Bob Weir, Amos Lee, Ben Folds, Dan Wilson, Derek...
