Mike Isberto – “More in Love” Review

A dazzling effort of songwriting and vocal delivery by a rising California star, Mike Isberto’s More in Love is a collection of love songs and ballads that exercise the theme of facing the world head on, no longer running from the demons of the past or life’s challenges. A fresh new talent from California, his influences stem from greats such as Jimi Hendrix, BB King, Bob Marley and Otis Redding.

A beautiful, endearing work, Isberto does a fantastic job of leading his band of backing musicians, inspiring them to play to their highest level. An album of great songwriting flair, you’ll find soul and folk intermixed amongst standout tracks like “Truth North,” the piano gem “Lullaby Rain,” and the edgy, appealing swing of “So Lost” (complete with compelling drums and angelic cymbals).

The drums are riveting, the piano recorded in lovely fashion, the vocals drip like honey. The acoustic guitars are the backbone of the record, helping to make each song’s structure perfection. “Perfect Day” is a dreamy, feel-good love song. It’s a piece of work that spells beauty lyrically, touching on themes ranging from summer nights, the rain, movie scenes, and stargazing.

Overall, this is a great album to reflect on, meditate to, and take a summer nap to; it’s also a gorgeously recorded and produced record to savor and enjoy as the holidays draw near.
