Bio: Michael Burgin is an indie folk musician from the mountains of Western North Carolina. His style is raw stripped down and blends elements of old time and mountain folk and blues with a more modern indie and alternative rock sound.
“...On Burgin’s fourth solo album, he provides ten strong indie folk tunes that show that you can still be punk rock even if you aren’t amped and shouting. ...At face value, Some Heavy Hammer is a folk album. It is a very raw folk album though. It was recorded entirely on analog equipment and has a much stripped down sound and feel. ...There is a wonderful fervor and grit to this blue-collar sound that Burgin displays over eight original and two traditional tunes. ...While many folky, dancey bands that include a stage full of people are drawing more attention of late, Burgin has made an impressive album that brings folk back to its bare bones with a punk rock sensibility that is reminiscent of what folk meant to the 60s while still having a modern edge.”
