Immersing listeners in a rich and sensory mix of rhythms and tunes, Mike Masser brings with himself an empowering musical voyage in the world of Hard Rock. Having released on April 6th, 2021, the new album finds its foundation in Dr Johns Surgery Records. Aptly titled ‘True Grit’, the new release evokes a nostalgic, Classic Hard Rock sound, imbuing within listeners a thirst to seize their goals and follow their passions.
Intertwined with a raw, personal, and anecdotal touch, ‘True Grit’ showcases Mike Masser’s vibrant and electrifying musical vibe, while also showing listeners the real Mike. Having battled his inner demons, confronted burning realities, and faced a series of trials and tribulations, Mike Masser’s new music features a relatable and authentic storytelling ability.
An eclectic artist, Mike Masser found himself to disassociate with his musical inclinations, before fully reconnecting and self-actualizing his passions as a vocalist and a guitarist. This move was fueled by encouragement from a friend and his wife a decade after stepping away from music. The talented singer wrote and recorded his solo debut, “Desert Sun”, originally penned as a channel to experiment his musical passions with. Trying out diverse musical styles, the artist got to work on his next album, ‘One More Shot’, bringing with himself a promising sound of Rock and Roll.
“On this album I kind of went back to my classic hard rock sound. I hope it makes listeners feel excited and motivated and inspired all while finding something they can relate with in the music,” says Mike Masser regarding his new release.
