Album Notes
The Dude CD, you could say has been 15 years in the making. It has been since 2003 that Mike released a CD, "Reflections of San Diego," as a member of the Slayen & Fox Guitar Duo. A few of the songs on Dude have been around in some form during this recording hiatus as part of Mike's live performances. However, it was not until Mike decided to do a new CD and set a deadline that this music was born. 90% of the music did not exist before September 2017. Making the fall of 2017 a hectic yet creative endeavor to complete this project. "That was such a fun 3 months writing and recording this project!," says Slayen of Dude.

Dude is in reference to the Double IPA of the same name...brewed by none other than Mike's own brother in law Mark Purciel owner/brewmaster of Oceanside Ale Works. OAW is one of the early pioneers of the San Diego Craft Beer scene. "I would love to write a song for each of their beers some day but for now Dude will have to do!!"

Mike has a long list of influences all of which can be found on this collection. He grew up loving all kinds of music as a youngster. Became highly influenced by the 'musical' side of hard rock and heavy metal bands, went on to study classical guitar and composition and has since performed a mix of rock, pop, classical, Latin jazz, flamenco and more. All of these influences have made their way into the Dude CD in some fashion from the Bee Gees to Metallica .
