Under My Chin
This was produced by underground artist, Ice Mac Sea, in collaboration with other independent musicians around the country using the internet. Ice Mac Sea has absorbed musical genres and influences from various decades: 50s country, 60s British pop, 70s singer-songwriters, 80s electronica, and 90s hip-hop to create a unique and compelling sound. 'I usually think of my target audience as old geezers who came of age in the 70s like myself, but people often tell me their kids like my CDs as much as they do, ' says Mac Sea. 'I always get a kick out of that, because kids don't have the same filters and prejudices that the rest of us have.' Blogger Hal Johnson discovered Ice Mac Sea at four in the morning while driving to the airport near his home in California. He tuned in the satellite radio to the 'Progressive Country' channel, and a half-hour down Interstate 5, song named 'Steve Earle' popped up. 'Gram Parsons never died You can hear him singing every night They love the dead ones the best They never disappoint you like the rest.' Hal pulled over at the next gas station to write down the unusual artist name, Ice Mac Sea. Writing about Ice's reputation for 'down-right weird' music, Hal blogged later, 'Yep, it's weird, but infectiously so. Just ask my wife and son, who spent many mornings singing along with Ice Mac Sea on the way to my son's kindergarten class. '
