Mike Riley “Drug Dealer” – Listen

There’s a bit of a clue as to what inspired Canadian Mike Riley to refocus on music in the title of his new EP – the ‘Divorce EP‘.  Having done the right thing and focused on  professional career Mike Riley found himself in new emotional surroundings  in his adopted town of London (ON).  Music was something he’d always had in his life, and the time felt right to dig in deep for a batch of new songs.  ‘Drug Dealer’ pulls together thoughts of hopelessness, of, as Riley says  “feeling stuck, full of envy and betrayal as you watch the only people you care about move on.”
