Mike Kusek is a New Haven based singer songwriter who has until recently been known primarily as the lead guitarist of local folk-rockers Elison Jackson. Kusek’s solo material, while still being guitar based, is much more ambient, sometimes gentle, while exploring darker, even sinister tones and themes.
