Discovery: Mike Vermeil

Mike Vermeil is a Philadelphia, USA-based Americana artist whose eclectic influences include Bob Dylan, Steely Dan and Lil Uzi Vert. His latest track American Vacation caught my ear.

By Graeme Smith

American Vacation is bold, bright and confident from the off but under its folk-rock swagger is an insightful and absorbing story. In it, Mike dissects modern American culture through seemingly-autobiographical detail. Fans of the aforementioned artists will find a lot to love from it, but also fans of Springsteen or Conor Oberst.

I’ll certainly be keeping an eye on Mike. He’s got all that’s required to be a big, cult hit. Check out American Vacation below and see if you agree. The track is taken from his EP of the same name, which has also been released today.
