Although he will forever be first, and foremost, the bassist of legendary cult-status jam band Phish, Mike Gordon is no beginner at the solo project game. His latest release, Overstep, his fourth to date, continues his tradition building sturdy and sophisticated rock songs. Always one to buck tradition, Gordon avoids routines and rituals when working on his personal work. Opting instead to set general goals, and give in to experimentation. With this is mind, Mike relinquished some control on his latest offering, handing over production to Paul Q. Kolderie (Radiohead, The Pixies). He also co-wrote the record with long time collaborator, Scott Murawski, who also sings lead on three songs. The end result speaks for itself; a diverse set of songs, which draw inspiration from countless sources.
