New Music: Mike Biggar’s ‘Go All In’

Mike Biggar’s latest, ‘Go All In’, does exactly that. His much anticipated third full-length album is crosses genres and is chock full of soul. Perfectly crafted lyrics and stellar vocals make this album a pleasure to listen to the whole way through.

Biggar’s latest effort mixes heartbreaking ballads like ‘Kinda Sad’ with bluesy, rootsy, stompers like ‘Blood From A Stone’. This album goes deep and is an album in the truest sense of the word. There is not one song that tempts the listener to click through to the next track. Though there are many musical influences throughout, it is never disconnected, just eclectic and a joy to listen to. Definitely a musical story that resonates with the East Coast listener.

We see nods to Biggar’s gospel roots, the sound is unmistakable with lyrics that run like church on Sunday morning.

This multi-award winning singer/songwriter enlists the help of heavy-hitter ECMA winning co-writers Chris Kirby, Brent Mason, Chris Cummings and Charlie A’Court, who does some great guitar work on Love and Insanity. These powerhouse collaborations with incredible East Coast musicians and songwriters speak to how respected Biggar’s talent is.

Sonically, it is different from Biggar’s 2013 release, ‘Feels Like Now’. Biggar draws on soul, gospel, blues and roots. All of these influences marry through and make this album one to keep playing for a long time to come. The songwriting is never labored and every single track shows an amazing depth and intimacy.

Fans of Mike Biggar will love ‘Go All In’ . Those who haven’t heard his work before will definitely seek him out for shows, where Biggar excels at connecting with his fan base. The sound is authentic and completely brings the listener in with that earnest effort and beautifully produced songs. Biggar’s dedication to live performances will reward the listener as his vocals are even better in person.
