Mike Green, a young yet experienced songwriter who has worked with the likes of Mick Jagger, Maroon 5 and Wyclef Jean, just released ‘Break Free.’ This new single is defined by jazzy, groove-laced guitars, a bright Latin-flavored horns section and Green’s intensely melodic vocals. The opening riff, which in many ways carries the song, has a pleasing syncopation which gives the whole piece a distinctly progressive flavor. Green clearly also has some world music influences – in some ways he almost sounds like a young Peter Gabriel. Green clearly has a lot of quality personnel backing his sound up including horns expert and Dave Matthews Band contributor Rashawn Ross. ‘Break Free’ is just the beginning. Expect to hear more from Mike Green.
