"Every song on the record out-did itself over & over again with a surprise in every corner - Mike Marino & his RestlessSoul proves to be an artist with staying power"
— Emily Hinde – No Depression–Journal of Roots Music

"If Tomorrow's Yesterday is any inclination of what to expect from this musical mastermind of talent, then the introduction of a new musical legacy is now born."
— Louise Parker – Paste Magazine

"Mike – I'm forwarding this material along, this stuff is great and as good as any new Americana artist I've heard in a long ass time."
— Taxi Screener ID #256

"The track we selected is Out of the Darkness – it should cross over into several different radio formats. Loved the arrangement. The song has a cool Traveling Wilbury's vibe."
— Bryan Klausing – Assoc. Producer-Poetman Records/Woodsongs

"These are the words of poet/sage with a guitar; like a combination of CSNY and Lou Reed, heartfelt and to the point with a real world edge to it all."
— Keith "MuzikMan" Hannaleck – MuzikReviews.com



A sampling of Mike’s Originals. Lo-Res. MP3's. Important – Regarding Music Clip Fidelity

    "His Heartland Music sounds a bit like Rick Danko meets a countrified Clapton with a twist of Solo Tom Petty — Often Rustic but never outdated — Vintage Rock — for A Brave New World"

    Thought for the Day: Success is not a race with others but a journey with yourself...

    The erosion of the American Heartland & Culture lamented in song from the perspective of a Shadow Boomer at the end of the line...
    A life spent witnessing the fabric of America wither & fade away a little more with each passing year... Go Ahead, Google "The End of rural America" ...
    The demise of the small family farmer to Corporate Farms & GMO's, the fading of traditional values & the constant erosion of the American Heartland & frontier of The Wild West... Is this truly the End of the Innocence — or the fruition of Theodore Rozak's "Technocracy" gone mad...?

    Perhaps somewhere between George Orwell's Big Brother Mind Control of "1984", & Huxley's more sedate "Brave New World" — where the powers that be use the "pleasurable distractions" to seduce the masses into loving their servitude...
    Have you hugged your I-Phone today for the latest media frenzy...?
    Be careful what you wish for!

    What would these writers think of modern society today? The masses embracing the Digital-Techno world for quick convenience all at the expense of true freedom...

    It makes a dreamer imagine the bygone days of Beat Generation writer Jack Kerouac's — On the Road...
    Oh, to be lost in the Heartland of old America...

    Is anyone listening anymore? Does anyone care, — lost in this modern urban techno-infatuated, cyber world....? Well, they better if they can begin to appreciate what the Great Generation that won WWII gave to us.

    As the pendulum swings what is this generation passing on to America's future generations, & what's the message? What have we learned from history as more of our traditions & values dissolve along with the rural landscape?

    Medicated up & dumbed down... Welcome to the new Millennia...

    Erosion... is a continuous process...
