I came across the video for PDX super vet Mic Crenshaw’s Earthbound over the weekend and I have to say, I’m really impressed. Remarkable visuals accompany the conscious song, culminating in a fresh, outstanding and thoughtful product.

When it comes to finding your niche and staying out the way, Crenshaw is in a league of his own. When he’s not travelling to remote continents, you might catch the Midwest native whipping around Portland on his impressive motorcycle. Or you might find him mentoring young people who keep the traditions alive. The lead track off his album by the same name, Earthbound boasts flashes of mainstream appeal while staying rooted in Crenshaw’s mystique. Check it out.
