Blind MIC returns with live session for "Meant Well"

Anyone familiar with Gilles Peterson’s Brownswood Recordings probably knows that the “Brownswood Basement” sessions have produced some incredible performances from diverse artists in an intimate setting. As a sort of U.K. counterpart to NPR’s Tiny Desk Concerts, the cozy basement studio has hosted legends in the industry as well as notable up-and-comers including Roy Ayers, BADBADNOTGOOD and Moonchild. The latest session features the upstart Blind MIC, a soulful vocalist from Manchester who brings with him a live band for a rendition of the tune “Meant Well.”

Blind MIC shows off his personal lyric writing on this track with some introspective words about a difficult relationship, culminating at the end of the hook when the band stops and he sings, “I did more than I care to mention but the road to hell is paved with good intentions.” His band provides a relaxed yet edgy performance through the stylistically varied track, with crackling drums, dreamy chords, and a fiery saxophone solo. Blind MIC is well on his way to ascending in the music industry and with this killer band and a debut album called Love & Retribution on the way in 2019, there’s no telling how far he’ll go.
