Tiny Pilot

Purchase this album

Like so many before him, Michael Perry learned to sing in church. Then a Waylon Jennings 8-track got him hooked on boogety-boogety. This combination yielded the mix of straight-up twang and churchly harmonies found in Perry’s music. Tiny Pilot is Michael Perry’s second full-length release with his band the Long Beds. The songs on Tiny Pilot range from boot-stomping country to roughneck folk ballads and are populated by characters drawn straight from rural and small-town America. The music made by Perry and his Long Beds has been described as ‘country folk,’ ‘folk-twang,’ and Americana.

The CD version of Tiny Pilot includes 3 exclusive tracks not found anywhere else.

Ten-song album (on CD) of original songs written by Mike and recorded with his band the Long Beds. Not sure how to describe the music other than some have called it roughneck folk, and it honors the spirit of folks like John Prine, Waylon Jennings, James McMurtry, and so on. One lady in New Auburn said it was “like Gordon Lightfoot, only zippier.” We’ll accept that.
