In his words was born in the mountains of Pennsylvania, keyboardist Michael Mollo is the prototype of a restless musician, a true creator. Based in Santa Monica, California, he has developed his entire professional career as a composer and songwriter, focused on composing soundtracks for dozens of films, commercials, game scores and TV productions, all starting from Velvet Green Music label. As a keyboardist and singer he is part of Natural Dead, an acoustic tribute to the Californian band Gateful Dead, as 8-bit Fish he carries out an immersion through synthetization in the music of the band Phish whom he adores, having synthesized the six albums released by the band between 1989 and 1995. Without prior notice Michael Mollo has invented the super band Blue Door Records and with a cast of twenty-four extraordinary instrumental musicians - guitars, bass, keyboards, horns, strings and six singers - with whom he has released a debut album that requires several listens to discover and be surprised by everything it hides. Nothing seemed to suspect that this musician would have a hidden side that until now was unknown: his connection with blues, R & B and rock'n'roll. And this self-titled album is his surrender to all of us, an explosion of disinhibition and crushing rhythms in connection with the most genuine black roots music. Nothing is left to chance in a production that maximizes every detail and solemnly fits an orchestra of extraordinary musicians. This guy has come out without warning with an album that is as solid as it is surprisingly rigorous.
