Mike Delaney is a Boston-area singer-songwriter and part of the music group "New England Weather".
His humorous original songs and parodies cover a wide range of topics from himself ("The Hunk" and "Mando Tango") to the entire country ("If We Only Had a Brain"). In between are excursions into the world of natural science ("Tofu, the Vegan Killer Whale"), literature ("Daddy, Who''s Mark Twain?"), automated phone systems ("1-800-CONFESS"), women''s health ("Mammogram, M''am?"), sports ("Red Sox Dream"), the oxymoronic business of folk music ("I''m changing my name to https://www.tradebit.com" and "The Naked Open Mic"), parts of the human anatomy ("Colonoscopy", "Bare Midriff", and "Eyebrows"), and, of course, his raging ego ("It Is, In Fact, Always About Me").
He has been deemed an "accomplished amateur" by Marilyn Rae Beyer, the music director of WUMB, Boston Folk Radio, and Tom Paxton commented that at least one of his songs was "not bad". Anne Hills called the song 1-800-CONFESS "brilliant"!
Mike''s CD "1-800-CONFESS" was released in 2006. His second CD, with New England Weather, was released in 2007. His new CD, "Evening News" was just released in 2008.
