About this event

Borrowed Sparks

Borrowed Sparks, aka Mike Bay, grew up in a house that spent sleepy Saturday mornings escaping the worries of the weekday with records from artists like The Eagles, Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers and Steely Dan. Inundated from an early age with great American songwriters, he absorbed the sounds and the songs that would pass the test of time and prove to become a kind of cryptic road map to places he didn't yet know he was going.

On the cusp of adolescence, Bay received a gift that would forever change him; his first electric guitar. While fumbling through chords attempting to train his fingers to find the sounds hidden inside and looking for something to fuel the angst of the teenage wasteland he found another gift, Punk Rock. Full of unbridled passion, caution-less fury, Bay says it, "Resonated with me in a way that nothing ever had before." Finally he had found a place where his enthusiasm for music and connection was bolstered and embraced.

After learning to harness these gifts and logging countless miles on the road as a guitarist for Americana, Rock and Country acts, Bay, writing under the moniker "Borrowed Sparks" has a lot to say. "It's been something I could feel in my bones for a long time; Years and years," says Bay. "I always knew it's where I was going, just unsure of when or how I'd get there. I'm glad I'm finally here."

Borrowed Sparks reaches deep into both sides of Bay’s musical upbringing to distill a small batch of songs that harnesses their spirits. At times you can hear emphatic shouting from teenage years, a kid with X's on his hands in a sweaty mosh pit singing like life depended on it. In other moments you’ll hear from a seasoned songwriter, whispering faintly the stories of grown-up heartache learned since those early days.
