"Mickey Leigh Rescues Rock 'N Roll One Song At A Time"- Aquarian Weekly
"Sounds straight out of the CBGB era."- Brooklynvegan
"...guitar-driven, effortless and cool Petty-esque New York garage power pop/punk." - Rock Fiend
"2022's First Great New Indie Album"-
"Mickey Leigh has been a fixture on the New York rock scene since the late 1970s, fronting the Rattlers and Stop, appearing regularly at CBGB, joining Lester Bangs in Birdland and his brother, Joey Ramone, in Sibling Rivalry. The guitarist, keyboard player and singer has become something of an elder statesmen. In addition to being an author (I Slept With Joey Ramone) and an all-around swell guy, he organizes the annual Joey Ramone Birthday Bash charity concert."- Trouser Press
"Mickey Leigh can write loops around most people here. His songs are instantly memorable. Hear them once and you'll be singing them over and over again." - New York Press
"Mickey Leigh is a local treasure who's now reminding the world of what rock n roll should be" - Village Voice
"For much of his life, Mickey Leigh had been part of a group, and it served him well through a childhood that was so fascinating a book had to be written about it to the '70s in the depths of New York City's booming music scene."- ZO Magazine

Of the album, released in 2022, Mickey says, "Like every organic entity, music is perpetually re-adapting itself in order to survive = mutating. As we know, things we create also variate as they mutate. Mutated Music is what we are. Our new album presents a Variant of Vibe. This may sound complicated, but, it's only rock n roll. and we love it and don't want to see it become extinct! Mutated Music = Rescuing Rock 'n Roll, One Song At a Time."

Though Mickey Leigh has been making music for over five decades, 2022 sees his first solo full-length release under the name Mickey Leigh's Mutated Music. Growing up the brother of Joey Ramone, Leigh started his first band in 1964 at the age of 10, and by the age of 14, he was in a band with Joey and Tommy Ramone. He has been an instrumental figure in the New York punk scene ever since, including founding The Rattlers, Sibling Rivalry (with Joey Ramone), STOP, and plenty more.

In 2020, he decided to step out on his own and begin releasing tracks with Stevie Van Zandt's (The Sopranos, Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band, Little Steven & The Disciples of Soul) Wicked Cool Records. Leigh's partnership with Wicked Cool Records continues with the release of his first solo album, 'Variants of Vibe.'

In addition to 'Variants of Vibe', Mickey Leigh is the author of the book, 'I Slept With Joey Ramone: A Memoir., based on his experience growing up as the brother of Joey Ramone in Forest Hills, Queens.
