Mike Polizze

Long Lost Solace Find, the debut solo album by Mike Polizze represents the apotheosis of his evolving craft. It’s a Philadelphia story and it’s also a story about the erstwhile Purling Hiss frontman stepping out from behind the wall of guitar noise into the bright sunshine to inhabit the dazzling realm of glassy chords. It works beautifully. With very little electric guitar and few audible effects, Polizze’s expressiveness and dexterity as a fingerstyle player (not to mention a singer) emerges, giving life to his majestic, slow swaying, country tinged melodies.
