Mike Pinto’s “Let You Go” Background:
Mike Pinto’s 5th studio album, Hotel Rendezvous was recorded at Killion Studios in Hollywood, CA with Orgone guitarist Sergio Rios and will include 10 previously unreleased songs, including the albums first single “Let You Go.” In addition to Sergio’s presence on the record, the album is also backed by keyboardist Roger Rivas of The Aggrolites/Long Beach Dub Allstars, Jon Asher of The Expanders, and Budda Foster of Through The Roots along with horns by Josh Molle, Max O’Leary & Eric Hirschhorn.
If you’re not familiar with Pinto’s music, he’s a story-teller through song and has a great repertoire of music that ranges from reggae, ska, folk, country and blues. As for Mike’s new single, “Let You Go,” the story is told over mellow reggae-upskanks that pick up to a ska-tone during the hook while accented by horns.
In describing the background of the song, Mike tells The Pier: “A few years back, I lived with a couple who were in the midst of a breakup. The tension was thick, and I spent a lot of time in my room to avoid it. Hate to say it, but the turmoil of the couple’s relationship fueled this one. In general, it’s a meditation about relationships, the balance of giving and taking. I never write love songs, but I finished this tune in one sitting. Most of my songs on this record took me years to write, but not this one.”
The 10-track-record was recorded on tape and will officially be available for release on June 27th, 2017.
