It’s all rock and roll to me. My new solo project Dear Mr. Henshaw is off to a fun start; It was partly a way to declare that I’m doing something a little different than just Mike Surber with an acoustic guitar, and partly an excuse to come up with yet another project name. If you’ve seen a Mike Surber solo show before, what you’ll find different about Dear Mr. Henshaw (besides a gripĀ of new original songs) is a second microphone that triggers synth-string sounds, a wooden stomp percussion box under my foot, and a slightly more ethereal feel.

I have so much fun unleashing rock and roll with Fast Man that I thought I’d use Dear Mr. Henshaw to sway things over to the gentle side. I am, after all, a Gemini.
