Mike Wall didn't come from a musical family. The sparse musicianship in his midst being his grandfather’s playing in a big-band and a lonely, attic bound nylon string acoustic guitar rumored to have been his aunt's during the late 60's. But, even without a clear influence at home during his childhood, music found him. It stuck with him through years of hard and heavy music encompassing shows all through the New England underground and a move to Montreal, QC from Rochester, NY at 23 years of age. It stuck with him through his rediscovery of contemplative song writing and his love of musical independence to now shine through with stark honesty in every open-tuned guitar chord, every haunting vocal line that is his solo acoustic work in Espialist.

Drawing power from observations of the human condition and experience filtered through Mike’s emotions the Somnabmule EP, released in November 2013, could be compared the solo work of Mark Kozelek, Neil Halstead, or Ryan Adams. Not necessarily inspired by a normal “verse / chorus / verse" song structure, he feels just as at home expressing his materiel in a “vignette de pensee” fashion as he does in expressing himself with long, slow-burning songs. As of November 2014, pre-production has now begun on the forthcoming full length release tentatively set for Spring 2015.

Based out of Montreal, Quebec, Canada, Espialist began playing shows in late Fall 2013 and so far has shared the stage with the likes of Barzin, Joyce Island, Eagle Lakes Owls and Fred Woods
