With the expansive library of all the music of the world from every time period at our fingertips, creative artists seem to be more and more liberated from the archaic mentality of being pigeonholed into one genre or demographic. Mike Love is at the forefront of this movement. Healing is at the core of his music.

Fans often leave live performances remarking about how they have just been to church, or had a bad day turned around.
