Biography

Mike Fiore dreams big.

It’s not just as a result of having his first Faces On Film release, “The Troubles,” which he recorded with a revolving cast of musicians, receive such high praise from the Boston music press. Surely, having critic James Reed of the Boston Globe refer to, “The Troubles,” as one of his top albums of 2008, saying it “sounds like a private affair straight from the heart” allows for sound sleep. It was dreams of a different sort, however, that fueled his expansive and evolved second release, “Some Weather.”

“I was having these dreams and they were all similar and they all happened around the same time, within a week or a week and a half or something,” the winner of last year’s Boston Phoenix award for “Best Singer/Songwriter” as well as the subject of an NPR “Second Stage” feature recalls. “It seemed like I was having these dreams every night.”

Those dreams, with their recurring themes of physical movement and personal exploration as well as the ramifications of both, inspire the rootsy fragility of “Some Weather.” Fiore’s vocals find a warm home drenched in reverb as his latest co-conspirators (guitarist, Dave Hinckley; and organist/percussionist, Elio DeLuca;) flesh out the singer’s guitar playing and moody lyrical musings with suitably subtle touches.

“It would have been hard to not write a song about these things,” he says of the nocturnal journeys that were the impetus for an eloquent examination of self. “It was the last thing I thought of before I went to sleep and the first thing I’d think of when I woke up, It was hard to shake.”
