How to Disappear Completely

Mike Massé does a lot of nice covers - to a smattering of customers live at Pie Pizza in South Jordan, Utah

Solo, or with bass player Mike Hall, he prolifically and acoustically tackles several songs by Radiohead (Karma Police, Paranoid Android, Lucky), U2 (Pride-In the Name of Love, One, All I Want Is You), The Beatles (Blackbird, Things We Said Today, Norwegian Wood), and others (Rocket Man, Space Oddity, Old Man, In Your Eyes). He's trying to raise money to make an album of original music.

I discovered him awhile ago and really like his covers, and his original music is pretty good too. Yet another example of the internet enabling something positive. Thanks for posting this to the blue.

And he could be CK Louis's body double...

He looks like Louis CK, his voice is very pleasant, his guitar is nice and rich, and he's got a certain drive to him: It sounds like he's going somewhere, which makes me want to go along with him.

His Space Oddity was great, and his Blackbird cover was thoroughly enjoyable.

It's the South Jordan "The Pie" but the original is still in SLC and your name is still on the wall.
