Mike Dekleva is a critically-acclaimed instrumental rock guitarist, musician, and composer from Albuquerque, New Mexico. On November 9, 2018, Mike released ‘Psychedelia,’ his second original instrumental rock music EP, which features four of Mike’s new original instrumental songs. This EP, recorded at Paragon recording studios in Franklin, Tennessee, and in Mike’s studio, follows the release of Mike’s 2015 critically-acclaimed and award-winning debut EP ‘Synergy,’ Mike’s compositions have been described as “stunning,’ and his melodic guitar playing has drawn favorable comparisons to guitar legends Steve Lukather, Neal Schon, Dan Huff, and Eric Clapton. Here’s what fellow musicians and music critics have said about Mike:
‘[F]rom spark to completion…Mike Dekleva’s personal guitar voice, heart, and passion for life can be heard in every note.’ Robbie Calvo (Nashville Session Guitarist, Producer, Songwriter, and Master Educator)
‘Mike lets his guitar sing the way we want to hear it, like Lukather, Clapton and Schon and [his music] has a big sound with perfect melodies that is a must-hear for fans of instrumental guitar-based music.’ Gabor Kleinbloesem (Strutterzine Independent Music Magazine, June 2016)
‘Psychedelia is an amazing EP[.] . . . The production is outstanding, the musicianship is as good as it gets and the songs stunning. . . . [Psychedelia] will almost certainly become a benchmark for the elusive pursuit of excellence in both technique and articulation, when it comes to independent productions.’
