Mike James Kirkland: Hang On In There

Do you know the feeling you get when you listen to a song for the first time and your heart swells immediately and all you can think is that you have just encountered something timelessly beautiful?

Well, I had that the other day with an oldie but goldie from the soul world: the ‘California soul’ world to be precise. Mike James Kirkland has a voice like velvet, and with his tune Hang On In There, he really got me. For those of you who are with me here, there’s a fantastic podcast interview with him where he reveals how things were ‘back in the old days’ that is well worth listening to.
