Discover The Next Original

The Mike Estep Band has been selected for inclusion on a compilation CD entitled "Discover The Next Original, Volume II," sponsored by Pilsner Urquell beer and the NPR radio program World Café. This is truly an eclectic international collection, with artists from all over the world and from a number of different music genres.

Superstar musical legends Steve Winwood, Emmylou Harris and The Robert Cray Band are joined by rising stars Jamie Cullum, Bloc Party, Old 97's, Josh Ritter, and 10 others, including the MEB with their song, "Borders To Share." It's a celebration of original music, one that we are thrilled to be a part of.
