Mike Sponza Band
“ERGO SUM” is an incredible new concept-album inspired by powerful classic Latin poems.
It took Mike some years to develop the idea, to find the right poems, to translate them in a “blues format” and finally to work on them for the definitive versions. Because human passions don’t change: love, fight for power, Eros, friendship… they were here millenniums ago, and someone already sang about them.
For this project, Mike called one of the greatest contemporary blues artists in Europe - Ian Siegal. And the fantastic Dana Gillespie gave her contribution too. The album has been entirely produced at Abbey Road Studios by Rob Cass (known for his works with Giles Martin, Jack Bruce, Bernie Marsden).
The album will be presented and performed at the concert by the Mike Sponza Band:
Mike Sponza - gtr/voice
Bob Maffyols - bass/voice
Mo’ Reno - drums
