Singer and Songwriter Mike Errico Releases "Wander Away" on April 12th
NEW YORK - April 14, 2011 --Paltalk, the leading real-time, video-based community with over 70 million downloads, announced today that pop-rocker Mike Errico will join Diana Falzone as her guest on the video chat program for Friday, April 15th at 12 p.m. EST. Errico will be releasing his highly-anticipated album "Wander Away" on April 12th. Participants can access the chat by visiting Paltalk.com/DianaFalzone.
Errico's music has been described as "lush pop-rock that draws comparison to Elbow and Iron and Wine." From urgent songs like "Ready or Not" to the otherworldly ones like "Everybody Knows," Errico expands his signature songwriting style with new instrumentation - including dobro, string sections, harmonium, and pedal steel. His latest project includes a compilation of a varied group of co-writers, and a vocal vulnerability only hinted at previously. In particular, Errico reunites with long-time colleague and producer Ken Rich from Grand Street Recording and pedal steel master Bruce Kaphan - known most for his work with Mark Eitzel and American Music Club; resulting in songs that are both surreptitiously personal and eccentrically nostalgic.
"Interactive media in today's world is an incredible resource for musicians that most don't take advantage of like they should. I'm very excited to connect with my fans all over the world on Paltalk and introduce them personally to my new album. My latest project, Wander Away is a product that reflects the deepest level of my most focused and distilled expression. The combination of my writing and the artistry that was brought to it - it's an unrepeatable moment." Errico says.
