Album Notes
“Beautifully harmonic and brimming with a haunting feeling of despair, this album
makes for a profoundly moving listening experience.”
(Jersey Beat, Weehawken, NJ)

“…that haunting melody goes into your body and doesn’t want to leave.”
(Big Takeover, NYC, NY)

“Propelled by rich harmonies and intelligent lyrics that transform and transcend each
time you listen.” (Innocent Words Magazine, Oakwood, IL)

“A series of songs honestly produced that grow with each listen. This is a blue collar
album. One that reflects a craft and a craftsman. Good work.”
(Americana UK, London, UK)

Don’t Let It Bring You Down is the 9th full-length studio album for
Seattle born and Seattle/Europe based artist Mike Spine. Since 2002,
Spine has been known for hundreds of high-energy rock performances
and five albums with his punk/rock band At the Spine. In 2010, Spine
began revisiting his folk rock/Americana roots when he formed The
Beautiful Sunsets and released the critically acclaimed Coalminers &
Moonshiners in 2012. Songs on DLIBYD are in the vein of Coalminers
& Moonshiners, with some added spice and variety.

Started as a stripped down solo acoustic album in Portland, OR, with
longtime engineer and friend Rob Bartleson (Wilco, Pink Martini, Pond,
etc.), DLIBYD morphed into a more complex full band album with
three Portland based musicians when Spine returned from a long tour
performing overseas in 5 continents. Delayed due to subsequent tours
in Europe, the album is finally being released.

The album is a collaboration with three Portland based musicians:
Joey Prude on drums, Ali Ippolito on piano, organ, accordion, backing
vocals, and Rob Bartleson on bass. Songs from the album paint vivid
pictures of lives of the working class in cities where Spine worked as
musician, teacher and activist for the last two decades. Known for 20
years of powerful live performances, Spine and his band mates will
spend the next year touring the EU and US in support of the album.
