Mike Conde consists of a team of two incredibly talented musical voyagers. Guitarist, singer/songwriter Mike Conde and drummer/percussionist Rude-E have been exploring worlds of music together for over half of their lifetimes. With each project, both live and recorded, they have found a new avenue to venture down. The release of The Windows... in 2002 was met with an amazing response. The inspiring and introspective CD describes journeys through some of life's high and low points as seen through the eyes of the artist. The music and lyrics from The Windows... speak to everyone and everyone loves what they hear. In late 2006 Mike Conde took a path on which they had yet to travel and decided to hire a producer for their next recording project, a four song EP of their latest music. Dan Workman of Sugarhill Recording Studio accepted Mike & Rude-E's invitation and joined them on their quest to create a musical masterpiece. Dan has worked with an impressive list of artists... ZZ Top, Beyonce, Smashmouth and many others. Steve Christenson was made a part of this endeavor by signing on as co-producer. Steve's history at Sugarhill is as noteworthy with many of the same performers as Dan on his resume. The incredible music that was produced in those sessions stimulated the curiosity of many at the studio. All who stopped in were impressed by the guitar driven melodies and they were excited to hear the reintroduction of a seemingly lost art, the guitar solo. Those melodies are that which hits are made of, they are appealing and draw you into the universe that the song is creating. The solid drumming that carries each song is more than just a rhythm; it is a statement of perfection. The lyrical content is intelligent, hopeful, and insightful and the words are sure to find a place in your heart. With this outstanding EP as sonic enlightenment Mike Conde are taking their message to the masses and 2008 promises to have magnificent things in store for the band.
