Mike Mains and Brett Newski
“RESIDING IN DETROIT, TRAVELING THE WORLD. SINGING + BLEEDING SWEET ROCK-AND-ROLL.”
That’s Mike Mains. At least, that’s how he describes himself. He’ll be performing alone in The Basement, but is also the frontman for Mike Mains & The Branches (see video below). Recently, he’s been busy opening for JD Eicher during a July tour and trying to remember his Twitter password (he did).
Brett Newski was once had NBA dreams, but now he dreams in vans and Volkswagens on tour. He’s a Wisconsin native, but has been to four continents in the past half-decade. He claims to avoid “the American Dream” on purpose. He just released a compilation album, The Best and Worst of Brett Newski, and has four records and EPs to his name. Check out his song “Mind at Large” from his most recent studio album — Land Air Sea Garage — in the video below.
