With numerous awards and honours already under his belt, including winner of 2021 Blues Music Awards for 'Best Blues Rock Album' and 'Best Blues Rock Artist' Mike provides a remedy for ravenous ears, and he unleashes 11 of the most exquisite Blues, Rock and Soul treasures. The highly anticipated 'Resurrection' is brimming with deep and nail-biting melodies, which not only showcase Zito's strengths as a composer, with eight original songs that sparkle. But also as an interpreter of other compositions, with scintillating and influential takes on tunes from JJ Cale ("I'll Make Love To You"), Eric Clapton ("Presence of the Lord") and Willie Dixon ("Evil").
Mike's personal message hits home from the outset, with him pouring raw emotion and melancholy into every vocal hook. It is an album about resurgence, with Mike citing it as a 'rebirth'; it truly is the light at the end of the tunnel for what has been a year to overlook. Also, the striking guitar riffs cut through the mix sharper than the serpent's tooth. Likewise, the bluesy flow which springs out of each track is compelling, and Mike Zito recaptures the rock n soul soundscape, which shone yesteryear but in a new light!
