New York, NY (Top40 Charts) Mike Mangione is not the type of person that likes to sit still for too long. The finger pickin', podcasting, globetrotter has been releasing his brand of orchestral folk-rock for over a decade now and today you can hear his latest work But I've Seen The Stars via Relix. The ten track album is out now on RODZINKArecords and as Relix puts it "blends folk-rock with an orchestrated string section to winning effect."
Mangione says "This record was meant to take the listener on a journey, reflecting on the human mystery: who am I, what am I and where am I going."

Up until 2014, Mike led the group Mike Mangione & The Union, alongside his brother Thomas. After they dissolved, Mike began spending time in the Northwoods of Wisconsin to focus on writing his fifth studio record. In addition to having his brother in the fold, Mangione was in need of an accomplished rhythm section for the project. He reached out to friends, Josh Collazo (drums) and Seth Ford-Young (bass) of Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros. Later, Mangione was introduced to Chauntee and Monique Ross of the band Sistastrings. Their musicality on violin and cello, as well as beautiful vocal harmonies won Mike over. Having two sets of siblings in the group sparked the new moniker Mike Mangione & The Kin and resulted in a gentle, shining new effort.
But I've Seen The Stars is available now on iTunes.
